Alatus Capital S.A. is an Investment Manager based in Geneva, Switzerland. It is a Limited Liability Company under Swiss Law and is authorized by FINMA, the Swiss Financial Regulator, to act as an Asset Manager of Collective Investment Schemes.
Alatus Capital’s focus is on long-term capital preservation and appreciation via investments in publicly traded equities.

What We Do
Alatus' co-founders, Richard Vogel and Antoine Firmenich, joined forces as they realized that the world of finance had become too complex, and was lacking in terms of simplicity, authenticity and integrity. Having been approached by a small number of institutions & investors who shared their views, they started to manage the portfolio under a segregated account structure.
In 2007, the managed accounts were pooled to launch their flagship fund, and it was opened to number of global institutions and leading multigenerational businesses wishing to gain deeper insights and exposure to Europe.
Today, the co-founders along with third partner, Patrick McNeill, are privileged to work with a number of preeminent Endowments & Foundations, Corporate & State Pensions funds, Financial Institutions, large Family Offices and discerning Professional Investors who themselves created their wealth through investing, or by leading large, global industrial firms. The principals each have a 20 year career in finance and/or industry. They have advised and served on boards of a variety of multinational corporations and learned, from the ground up, how to build and grow global businesses. This experience allows for the evaluation of a company’s management team and corporate governance which is paramount to the goal of extracting value.
With their unique set of complementary backgrounds and shared passion for investing, the partners continue their driven pursuit of disciplined, methodical bottom-up work, and currently look after over one and a half billion USD of Assets under Management.
The firm presently offers 3 vehicles, a lower volatility and reduced drawdown Cayman fund, and two fully invested long only versions, one in the convenient UCITS structure, and the other as a Cayman fund. More details are available in the Products section and upon request.
