Quantrust is an independent investment manager based in Amsterdam and founded in 1993 by Henk Klein Haneveld and continued by Willem Klein Haneveld. We are passionate about our big picture investment approach that has generated strong long term investment returns to our institutional clients. As a sign of our commitment, we invest a significant part of our wealth in Quantrust's products alongside clients.
In a world of short-termism, being a family business has the advantage of being able to take a longer term view. That may mean sacrificing outperformance in strong markets, to avoid losses when the market turns sour.
Being a family business also shows in Quantrust's values. Quantrust is passionate about environmental protection and reserves part of its corporate profits to support projects in the field of nature conservation and reforestation.
Big picture focus.
Quantrust's investment approach was developed following years of experience in the institutional investment management industry to offer attractive investment returns irrespective of the market environment. Quantrust focuses exclusively on the "big picture" asset allocation decisions that tend to determine around 90% of investment returns and are key to generating attractive returns in different market environments.
Information has become a commodity: successful investing requires being able to deduce the big picture from an overkill of information by taking a broader perspective. Hence Quantrust identifies the "big picture" investment themes that drive global capital flows and determine the direction of asset classes. Quantrust analyses how global capital flows are interconnected. And Quantrust looks beyond the numbers at the people who take the big decisions in the world by gaining an understanding of their personal interests and political, cultural and historical backgrounds.
ESG is a hot topic but there is a lot of "green-washing". Most ESG strategies focus mostly on governance issues and on the relative sustainability of companies but have little positive environmental impact. Quantrust cares deeply protecting the environment. It continuously seeks practical investment strategies that have a real and sustainable impact on the environment - especially on the world's forests - without sacrificing return.
Quantrust currently offers an ESG-neutralisation overlay to institutions for hedging unwanted exposure gained through index products and Quantrust Macro Fund invests at least half of its net exposure in sustainable energy, sustainable mobility and green bond strategies.
