Alternative Investments

In addition to traditional investments, Genève Invest also provides its clients with alternatives. For many years, alternative investments have been an important cornerstone of conservative institutional investors, such as the college funds of universities like Harvard and Yale, but also of pension funds in Switzerland.

If you choose to pursue this path, you will benefit from the many years of experience Genève Invest has in this area. Genève Invest thus gives clients the chance to diversify their portfolios with investments that are otherwise only traded in markets that are difficult to access.

Hedge funds

Hedge funds are similar to investment funds but are less regulated and are actively managed. They pursue a variety of investment strategies enabling them to still achieve returns if the stock markets experience a fall, thereby ‘hedging’ the risks.

Property

Investing in property can either take place via the direct purchase of apartments or a building, or indirectly via shares, investments in properties, investment funds or so-called REITs.

Commodities

Investments can be made directly as a physical investment or indirectly via index certificates, shares in commodity companies or investment funds.

Private equity

Private equity consists of private, long-term equity investments in companies that are not publicly traded on a stock exchange. Due to their strategy, private equity funds are classified. Investments in private equity funds are generally held over the long term with an investment horizon of several years.
