Lack of bank lending spurs private loans

For most of the 20iest Century, US commercial banks were the primary lenders to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME), but two major events – the regional bank consolidation beginning in the 1990s in the U.S. and the global financial crisis in 2008, led to a decline in SME lending. Hence, US banks started already 20 years ago to scale back their middle-market lending activities and the introduction of more stringent banking regulations post the financial crisis served as an additional accelerator of this trend.

Since the beginning of 2009, European banks began to restrict their middle-market lending activities as well. The lack of “traditional” bank lending in this space has created the opportunity for attractive risk-adjusted investment opportunities.

What we manage

Generally, we live in a changing world. Alpinum Investment Management does not believe that a single portfolio manager will be the best one at all times.

For that reason, our approach is to actively select among the world’s best portfolio managers to meet investment needs consequently. In contrast, portfolio management strategy, risk control and active monitoring get performed inside the company by a team of professionals.

For instance, the funds managed and promoted by Alpinum Investment Management, in combination, can result in a sophisticated absolute return model portfolio strategy. Our investment funds are domiciled in Luxembourg, Liechtenstein as well as in Switzerland.

How we see the World

Cash Management

When Liquidity is Essential

Owning Liquidity is not only essential when there is a crisis. Having a well balanced approach to a diversified asset allocation, liquidity plays an important role. The management of this asset class is essential because cash not only represents the safety aspects but also provides the highest flexibility when it comes to availability and purchase power. It is overall accepted that holding cash provides none or little compensation.

It is therefore key to manage the risk where the liquidity is held and that holding liquidity is not penalized with sub-zero rates, something that got evident in Europe.

Owning Liquidity is not only essential when there is a negative interest crisis.

Portfolio Management Building Blocks

Alternative Investments

How can Alternative Investments build a better tomorrow?

Alternative investments have grown to an essential asset class for institutional investors and private wealth managers. Alternatives play a crucial role in modern asset allocation. They can either help to provide higher levels of income, enhance the return profile or reduce the volatility of an investor’s portfolio. Hence, the asset class can be beneficial for a portfolio in a variety of aspects.

The importance of alternative investments has only grown over the last few years. Particularly, since the investment outlook for “traditional” asset classes has become less attractive, evidenced by low or even negative interest rates and high volatility in equity markets as just witnessed in Q4 2018 or Q1 2020.
