Investment Strategy

The approach to Asset Management, strongly characterized by the Company’s founder, is based on the long-term growth of invested capital, combined with accurate risk-management.

Along with them were created artificial intelligence algorithms which are able to select the different markets and, within each market, identifying the best investment opportunities.
