Kieger is an independent asset manager that designs solutions for clients who care about making a positive difference, towards a more sustainable world.
To care is deeply engrained in our origins. For us, caring is an all-encompassing spirit,
capturing the thought and attention that we give to both our clients, and to the world at
large. It is an expression of our continuous strive to make a positive difference through
everything we do. In our mind, care is also about the rigour, thoroughness and sharpness
we apply to our work, resulting in holistic solutions for our clients that truly move
everyone involved forward.
We call it “dare to care”.
At Kieger, we are generous in thought and action. We see generosity as a noble cause, and one central to who we are and how we behave. In our view, being generous means giving our clients the attention and dedication they need to navigate the complexity of investment. Being generous is also about caring for our world and for our society – about building a better future for the next generations. Our generosity towards our employees creates an environment in which people feel safe, enabling collaborative work so as to achieve the best solutions for our clients.
We go beyond helping our clients generate positive differences in monetary terms. At Kieger, we take our responsibility very seriously. Together with our clients, we strive to make a positive difference on society at large. We make a positive difference on our clients’ future, enabling them to live in a better world and, in turn, to do good with their wealth that we help grow safely. Making a positive difference is first and foremost a mindset for everyone at Kieger: how to impact the future of our world and how we, as investment manager, can play a role in making it a better place.
We place the utmost importance on servicing our clients efficiently and swiftly, sharing our unique expertise with them. We strive to be more than smart professionals. We aim to be truly thorough in everything we do and the sharpness, depth and rigour that we apply to our work can hopefully be felt by everyone we engage with – both internally and externally. Each of our areas of expertise is managed by specialists with long- standing experience and deep knowledge. The collaboration between our teams leverages this knowledge and provides our clients with holistic investment solutions.
