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

We have since broadened our expertise to global credit and Italian equity, offering a diversified and unconstrained strategy. With respect to private strategies, we invest in non-performing loans predominantly secured by high-end residential real estate assets in Italy.
