SIGLO Investment Themes or "What do you do, Sir?"

SIGLO proactively advises clients in selecting interesting and suitable investments both in the traditional and in the alternative space. For SIGLO the starting position of a customer and the current market environment play a decisive role.

Today SIGLO focuses on solutions that address on the one hand the pressure on earnings and on the other the challenge to build a reasonably well-diversified portfolio. Specifically, it is important to identify investments that promise attractive and ideally independent returns or risk premia. Today examples are ILS or Credit and private debt as well as particular hedge fund strategies and alternative risk premia. In this connection SIGLO runs a number of current projects on behalf of clients. Certain findings and excerpts from the corresponding work can be downloaded in the public presentations section.

SIGLO has a market view, which it shares with clients proactively. In the selection of products and managers our market view plays an important role because different active investment styles do not work equally well in all market environments. SIGLO communicates actively the reasons for our recommen­dations of certain active strategies and its timing.

If the situation or the facts change, we think about our view and maybe change it as well. Do you do the same?
