Company Profile

European Invest S.A. is an independent asset management company focusing on offering comprehensive portfolio management services to private and institutional clients.

The independence of our company means it is fully-owned by its founding partners. The alignment of interests with the client is made possible by our independence, as we do not belong to a banking group or any other financial institution. This implies the investments are exclusively carried out in line with the client’s preference.

Rather than focusing on short-term profitability, the partners have founded the company with a long term perspective.

European Invest S.A. shares a common vision of long term success which lies in trustful relationships with our clients as well as stable and profitable returns of their portfolios.

European Invest S.A. aims to support, protect and advise its clients on all aspects of the management of their portfolios including investment management and wealth planning.

European Invest S.A., its shareholders and managers are approved and regulated by the Luxembourg financial sector supervisory authority (C.S.S.F or Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier) as Professionals of the Financial Sector (PFS).

Right in Luxembourg city centre, the company office is located at Geiben House, 17A - Rue des Bains, 3rd Floor, L - 1212 Luxembourg.

At the heart of Europe, Luxembourg is both a world-class financial centre and a European hub for expanding companies such as European Invest S.A.. Luxembourg is one of the least indebted countries of the world with a triple A rating enjoying very stable and sound political and fiscal systems.

Our History

The founders of European Invest S.A. are based in Monaco. Under the authorization and supervision of the local financial authority (CCAF – Commission de Contrôle des Activités Financières), they have established 2PM Monaco (Personalized Portfolio Management) in 2006 and built an outstanding track record in the performance of investment and wealth management services to high-end international clients.

Today, 2PM Group, the wealth management group they are the source of, has offices in Monaco (headquarters), Switzerland, and Mauritius as well as a team of 24 seasoned asset management professionals who oversee client assets above € 1 billion.



Backed by their success, the satisfaction and enthusiasm of their clients, they have decided to set up European Invest S.A. in order to freely provide services in the major European countries and efficiently serve international customers on a European and global scale.

Personalized Portfolio Management: our DNA

Personalization of portfolio management is European Invest’s DNA.

FOCUS

European Invest S.A.’s sole business is portfolio management – we are not distracted by other lines of business.

Our belief is that long-term success belongs to those investors who consistently focus on doing a few things right and on avoiding the worst errors. Being focused on one single business aims at meeting this objective to provide strong value-added performance and services to the client in the long run.

PERSONALIZATION

One size doesn’t fit all!

Each client is unique and European Invest S.A. approaches each relationship and individual as such.

Unlike large financial institutions where portfolio management automation is the rule, European Invest S.A. applies a tailor-made approach to portfolio management, which means:

  • We run client’s portfolios actively with a daily supervision, to the contrary of the more passive ‘industrial’ portfolio management policy.

  • European Invest S.A. is not applying a benchmark approach. It implements the strategy defined with each client to meet his expectations in terms of risk tolerance, revenue generation and assets protection.

Our Values

INDEPENDENCE

Wholly-owned by its founding partners, European Invest S.A. is fully independent as there is no financial institution holding a majority stake in the company. With no conflict of interest, our team focuses solely on our clients’ long-term satisfaction.

TRANSPARENCY

Transparency is absolute: European Invest S.A.’s methods of management, relationships with third parties and remuneration are clear and aim to guarantee our interests which are fully aligned with those of our client.

QUALITY

European Invest S.A. aims to offer the highest level of excellence and service. Each client benefits not only from one portfolio manager but from a professionnal multi-expert team that brings many years of experience and "state-of-the-art" knowledge to meet the client's needs.

CONTINUITY

European Invest S.A.’s independence, transparency and quality of its services constitute a solid base for long-term relationships. Knowing our clients personally and individually as well as understanding their changing needs enable us to advise them at all important stages of their lives.

Our Team

At European Invest S.A., all team members:

  • are committed to act with sound ethics, mutual respect and deep integrity and always to place the clients' interests ahead of their own,

  • have extensive technical expertise and multi-year proven track records in investment and wealth management and are able to go beyond technical knowledge by offering something even more valuable: practical wisdom and common sense,

  • share a passion for investment and wealth management business,

  • are ‘happy-at-work’ and enjoy working together and with the client. Free from corporate bureaucracy and office politics, we embrace a stimulating, supportive, flexible and action-oriented working culture that sets us apart from our competitors.
