Picard Angst offers institutional investors individually structured products and multi-asset class solutions, investment funds in its areas of expertise, commodities and equities, and in its focus areas, India and real estate. Our solutions are based on our systematic financial engineering, which achieves comparative advantages through its quantitative, rules-based approach and disciplined investment process.
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.
