Asset Management

The Company

AIF Alternative Invest Finance AG is one of the first independent asset management companies in Liechtenstein. Since 2006, we have offered a wide range of investment strategies and solutions for private clients, institutional investors and corporate clients worldwide.

We believe that statistically rigorous and robust market analyses in particular reliably identify continuous alpha sources that exist due to inefficiencies in the behaviour of market participants. We are largely quantitative in all aspects of trade. Strategy selection, portfolio design, execution and risk control are usually accompanied by algorithmic and systematic processes.

Our goal is to achieve a consistent, absolute return with a consistent, absolute return with a performance result uncorrelated or negatively correlated compared to various US indexes such as the S & P 500 index or the US Government Bond index, as well as hedge fund indices. Our trading programs offer clear diversification benefits.

Investors who added our trading strategies to their portfolios benefited from above-average earnings in the medium to long term, while reducing risk of their overall portfolio (positive correlation effects).

We offer UCITS funds that have an excellent long-term track record, daily liquidity and low to no correlation with other market indices. Brokerage services for fixed income and structured products complete the investment offering.

We invest worldwide and primarily pursue a long/Short approach, based on technically selected investments – we do not chase market novelties in principle. Our investment strategies are based on long-term track records. Customers understand our processes and portfolios because they are transparent. Systematic analysis models form the basis of our investment perspective.

Using the example of our PAM funds: Risk control is both proactive and reactive. Proactive risk controls include restrictions on leverage and scaling positions, tailored to product volatility and return targets.

Our typical exposure is about 1/4 of maximum exposure, and sometimes our strategies can be completely out of the market. Proactive risk control continues to be provided through strategy diversification. Reactive risk controls involve a stop loss on positions.

As a testament to the strength of our investment expertise, our PAM Alpha Fund received the award for Best Alternative Investment from German GELD-MAGAZIN in 2016 and 2018.

In March 2017, FFW® awarded the PAM Alpha Fund a five (= highest rating) FWW FUNDSTARS®rating. FFW® analyzes over 26.5000 mutual fund stock classes based on return and volatility.

Established financial centers such as New York, London and Singapore are increasingly experiencing competition from innovative, tax-friendly and well-regulated economies around the globe. We expect this trend to continue as long as technological advances continue to decentralize the financial industry.

Liechtenstein is rising rapidly in the financial world due to its recognized regulatory environment, an attractive tax system and its geographical location. There are income taxes for assets under management. Funds are not subject to VAT, and funds may even be considered tax-exempt parties . After all, no withholding taxes are payable for dividend payouts. On top of that, corporation tax in Liechtenstein is just 12.5% – significantly lower than in many neighboring countries.

The official language is German, the official currency is the Swiss franc, and the country has deep economic ties to Switzerland and the European Economic Area. Liechtenstein, as Switzerland’s neighbor, has long been linked to the Swiss banking sector and the talented employees who breathe life into it. For investors, this means that Liechtenstein-based fund managers are likely to be among the best and smartest talents in the financial industry. At AIF Alternative Invest Finance AG, we are proud of our roots in Liechtenstein.

Liechtenstein is one of only 12 countries in the world to be rated AAA’s highest credit rating by Standard & Poor’s. This credit rating is largely due to Liechtenstein having absolutely no public debt . Since 2008, the national debt has risen worldwide and it is almost impossible to find another developed economy that has absolutely no debt on its public record. In addition to this economic stability, there is a political environment that offers new and existing companies a high degree of legal certainty. As a result, private investors need not worry about choosing an independent asset manager in Liechtenstein, for example because of regime change or political upheaval.
