Monte-Carlo, Monaco, January 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Panthera Solutions, an Alternative Investment Consultancy in Monte-Carlo, is offering its European customers premium access to the world´s most renowned and prestigious hedge funds. Until now, investing in top managers was almost impossible for smaller insurance companies, regional banks and HNWIs. Unattractive cost ratios and unreachably high minimum investment hurdles banned this group from accessing the best. These times are over. For the first time in Europe, Panthera Solutions opens the gates for this group and offers a cost- & time-efficient access to top managers like John Paulson, Brevan Howard and DE Shaw. Even closed funds can be bought via Panthera.
Instead of common minimum investment hurdles between EUR 5 mln and EUR 25 mln (fund specific), Panthera Solutions enables investors to buy the top managers at a minimum of EUR 0,5 mln. This marginal entry level opens the door to robust diversification for European pension funds, insurance companies, regional banks and HNWIs. A significant competitive advantage.
Hedge Funds ´en vogue´ again.
Throughout 2009, hedge funds rehabilitated their image as upcoming asset class for institutional and private portfolios. By the end of last year, worldwide industry assets reached pre-crisis levels of USD 2 trillion. The last 24 months saw a necessary consolidation amongst hedge fund managers, products and fee structures. Markus Schuller: “Warren Buffett once said ´you only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out´. The ongoing selection process in the hedge fund industry has clearly highlighted risk and return advantages of the best managers.“
How is it possible?
Markus Schuller, founder of Panthera Solutions, looks back on a long, favorable career in the alternative investment industry. Through his comprehensive network across the industry, Panthera Solutions is in a position to offer European institutional and private investors premium access to the top hedge fund managers. Network example. A co-operation with HSBC Monaco enables Panthera clients to access primary and secondary opportunities in premium hedge funds.
Buy the original.
An important affirmation to know. Pantera Solutions´ access grants investors to buy the original hedge funds. No need to settle with suboptimal hybrid products like structured notes or ETFs on hedge funds or HF Indices.
