Focusing on thematic investing
We use our thematic investments to focus on the trends of tomorrow. They’re not based on particular investment categories: instead, they focus on major structural changes. We identify global ideas relating to how these transformations can be turned into business models that generate as much value and benefit as possible. Our thematic investments enable investors to profit directly from these trends becoming a reality.
Food Revolution Fund
The Food Revolution by Picard Angst is a global equities fund that aims to benefit from the structural changes undergone by the food industry. To this end, we invest in 40 to 60 listed stocks along the value chains of six segments experiencing strong growth on a structural level.
We are one of the leading commodities specialists in Switzerland. Many large commodity benchmarks come with inherent disadvantages for long-term investors, so in 2006, we developed our own investment approaches based on analyses of the structural characteristics of commodities markets to offer investors long-term outperformance with moderate volatility. We now manage investments of over one billion US dollars in these strategies.
