Geneva-based asset management firm DECALIA Asset Management pursues its development strategy by launching its investment fund family DECALIA, six months after obtaining its investment fund management licence in Switzerland (CISA). The 5 UCITS-compliant strategies launched initially within the Luxembourg SICAV are focused around four investment themes considered to be promising on the long-term: disintermediation of the European banking sector, quest for yield, new consumer trends and market inefficiencies in Europe. Other strategies should be launched in the coming months. Restricted for the moment to qualified institutional investors, the DECALIA funds are currently being registered in Switzerland and in several European countries for public distribution. Furthermore, DECALIA also offers a private debt fund restricted to qualified investors and manages OYSTER Italian Opportunities, one of the best Italian equity funds.
DECALIA Asset Management has passed an important stage in its development plans as it has been granted by the Swiss regulatory authority FINMA the agreement to manage investment funds as per CISA. At the end of 2014, DECALIA has announced its intention to complement its wealth management activity by diversifying into the creation and management of high added value products. The grant of this agreement will thus allow DECALIA to accelerate its expansion plans by launching its own investment fund family.
DECALIA today unveiled its new website. Compliant with the web’s latest trends, the site is adapted to all screen types (desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone) and follows the most recent standards in terms of navigation.
With its bright colour palette and its universe inspired by DNA strips, it is fully in line with the elegant corporate design developed by DECALIA.
DECALIA wishes you a very happy and prosperous new year.
