OUR SERVICES

WEALTH MANAGEMENT

Dangel Asset Management (DAM) offers its customers highly qualified and global customer liaison and support. The goal of our investment policy is to preserve and increase capital over the long run. This policy is based on an investment profile that respects each customer’s needs, as discussed in talks between the asset manager and the client. Portfolios typically contain investments in funds as well as direct investments in securities. Three topics dominate:
 

1.

Easily marketable securities of under-valued companies with a positive record and good prospects are our main investment target. We pursue this value-driven strategy mainly by selecting Swiss stocks with a strong management.

  

2.

To take advantage of the expectations of stronger growth in emerging markets, DAM focuses on private equity, as well as small- and midcaps in India and Sri Lanka.

To ensure the know-how and quality of service in these trey areas, DAM has cooperation agreements with known specialists in the respective realm.

3.

DAM uses derivative instruments with the consent of the client for a limited portion of assets, in order, for example, to hedge against risks related to currency or interest rate movements. 

FINANCIAL PLANNING

Dangel Asset Management offers a wide range of financial planning and portfolio administration services.

Dangel Asset Management provides its clients with personalized and comprehensive services, inspired by the discretion, rigour and trust that are the hallmark of Swiss private banking.

With significant experience in asset structuring and portfolio administration, we can coordinate high valued transactions, execute fiduciary business and advise on company formation and estate planning.

Dangel Asset Management does not receive either commission or retrocessions from the banks which we deal with on behalf of our clients. We prefer to work with institutions willing to grant our clients favourable terms and conditions. 

Remuneration for our services takes the form of a management or performance-related fee. Clients are charged for special services according to the nature and complexity of the transaction involved.

FIDLEG Client Information

Receipt of FINMA Approval July 2022

We are pleased to announce that Dangel Asset Management has received the FINMA license "Authorization for Institutions according to FINIG (Supervision AO)". After cooperation with AOOS and FINMA this milestone was reached in July 2022. We are very happy to have fulfilled this legal requirement already half a year before the official entry comes into effect and we are happy to have secured the further development of our business.

 

To date, only one in 10 asset managers in Switzerland has obtained a license, with around 400 institutions, according to current knowledge, foregoing this and the associated licensing process and ceasing their business activities. Liquidate or sell - these seem to be the only alternatives to applying for a license. 

 

Dangel Asset Management is facing the future with confidence. We are convinced to be prepared for upcoming challenges and are excited to see what opportunities the coming years have in store for us.
