We are an independent global asset management firm embracing long-only and alternative investment strategies.

We started off by investing in the global financial sector, covering the capital structure of financial institutions across both equity and credit.  With respect to private strategies, we invest in non-performing loans predominantly secured by high-end, residential real estate assets in Italy.  We have broadened our expertise to global credit and Italian equity, offering a diversified and unconstrained strategy.  More recently, we have expanded to quant investments to complement our skill set.

Algebris maintains established relationships with a global base of institutional and private investors, encompassing insurance companies, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, corporations, private banks and family offices.

Founded by CEO Davide Serra in 2006, Algebris maintains offices in London, Boston, Singapore, Tokyo, Milan and Luxembourg.
