We combine the expertise and flexibility of a focused asset management team with the strengths and processes of a broad-based international platform. The company’s structure is tailored to ensure close and continuous cooperation with our clients. Our goal: your long-term success.
Here with us, investors can find a concentrated spectrum of products that includes attractive portfolio solutions in the most important asset classes – equities, fixed income and multi asset. Our objective is to create sustainable value added. For this, our clients can choose between investing in UCITS funds registered in Luxembourg and special mandates that we tailor to your individual needs.
We are active portfolio managers and thus a benchmark-type tracking of indices is contrary to our style of investment. That means we consciously select individual investments. Our portfolio management team implements this philosophy using their long-standing experience of combining a deep-rooted understanding of capital markets with a dedicated style of investment.
We consider ourselves a “multi-boutique”, where each fund management team is authorised and committed to consistently pursue and implement its own style of investment. We deliberately do not interfere with this process – and neither demand a uniform investment universe nor appoint a chief investment officer to control investments. As a result, our teams’ investment processes are always individual. This is accompanied by disciplined business procedures that ensure style consistency as well as active risk management. In an increasingly complex and dynamic capital market environment, we perceive risk not as various individual components but rather as an overarching tangible concept.
We are entrepreneurs. Therefore, we deliberately choose people with a strong character for our portfolio management team. Our fund managers are able to develop strategies that do not involve benchmarking and can be implemented in volatile and challenging markets. Our successful track record, going back many years, is proof of this.
Character. For More Performance.

MainFirst is a signatory of the United Nations-backed Principles of Responsible Investing (PRI). The purpose of PRI is to take environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into account when investing for the benefit of long-term interests of economies, financial markets and signatories. The Principles were developed by the UNEP Finance Initiative (Geneva) and the UN Global Compact (New York) together with an international group of institutional investors.
The six Principles of responsible investing to which signatories commit are:
1. We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
2. We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
3. We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
4. We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
5. We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
6. We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
