We generate long-term value

Our mission is to generate long-term value for investors, for the company and for society, in general.   

We are a dynamic and innovative investment fund with a solid organizational culture. With 30 years of experience on the capital market, we capitalize on ideas and resources to develop the company and meet investors’ expectations.   

Over the last 10 years we have consistently and systematically invested in opportunities and people. Through applying a robust strategy and a diverse array of tactics, we have constantly created performance.   

Our financial results prove the strength of our business model.

Boost the company’s evolution for the shareholders’ benefit
Generate organic growth

We have continued to grow with a compound average rate of return of 9,23%, 1,77% higher than the average of all funds in Romania and have evolved in many directions, including in fields that were not on the radar of many institutional investors in the last decade.   

We manage diversified high-performance portfolios and have highly-experienced staff in various fields of activity. The EVER price has performed over the reference index of BET local capital market and has had a sharper increase over the last four years, over BET-Fi sectorial index, and clearly  stood out in comparison to BET-TR, EVER.

What defines us?

The principles that are central to our existence are innovation, responsibility and performance, principles that have also become our competitive advantages.   

We have the right mix of resources – people, capital, investment and risk processes – that has generated repetitive positive results and pure alpha. We have experts in fundamental and technical analysis specialized on types of investments and portfolios whom we provide with the proper framework to express themselves, encouraging innovation in the investment process. We have well-defined processes and approaches from multiple perspectives of investment projects. In this context, risk management is an important aspect of the investment process since it protects both our capital and our reputation.   

Investment Strategy

Strategy

The strategy of the past 10 years reflects both the Company’s power and the benefits offered to investors, essential aspects that placed us at the top of high-performance investment funds in Romania.  

The purpose of the investment strategy is to bring consistency through portfolio performance and consistency through performance duration.  On this basis we have designed a robust, well-articulated strategy that is reflected in the performance on the level of all managed assets. We have focused on this granular approach for our portfolios, starting from the three strategic pillars: 

  • Consolidation and increase of the listed portfolio, the main income generator.  
  • Increase of private-equity investments, our main differentiator.  
  • Historic portfolio capitalization through sale.

Risk Management

Our risk management policy is carefully supervised as a key factor of our growth plan. We remain very focused on risk management and monitor it in terms of market, liquidity, issuer exposure, credit and counterparty risk, and, of course, operational risk. 

Our objective is the prudent management of risks so as to prevent the negative impact that internal or external factors may have on the Company’s activity, jeopardizing the fulfillment of set goals. Thus, we minimize the occurrence of unplanned or uncontrolled losses or the occurrence of other negative effects.  

In determining risk appetite and tolerance, we take into account all relevant risks that we are exposed to given the nature of our activity, the predominant influence being that of market risk. The overall risk profile taken on is medium, corresponding to a medium risk appetite.
