Individual AMC solutions

End-to-end service for your own active certificates

"Our digital platform will make the handling of complex products like AMC easier, faster, safer and more efficient." Adrian Wiedon, Head of Client Advisory

Actively managed certificates, which enable investment strategies to be executed much faster and more cost-effectively than funds, are in high demand. Picard Angst offers an end-to-end service for independent asset managers, encompassing the creation, sale and management of individual tailor-made active certificates. By using our platform, you will enjoy a completely digital solution.

Alongside barrier products with coupons, which are especially popular among investors, AMCs (actively managed certificates) are in particularly high demand. They enable investment strategies to be executed swiftly and, above all, cost-effectively, and can cover topics such as the sharing economy or rare earths.

As an asset manager, you can use AMCs to pool your customers and manage your trades more efficiently. AMCs are easy to distribute to potential new clients as allocating shares is a very simple process. In turn, this lets you build up a reputation and a public audited track record in a flash.
