The news platform Fundview, the liability umbrella NFS Netfonds, the asset manager azemos vermögensmanagement and co-initiator Alpay Ece, partner of NFS Netfonds and azemos, jointly launch the fourth season of the Future Fundstars competition, in which fund boutiques and investment talents present their strategies in a live pitch. The winner of this competition will receive an investment of up to three million euros.
Investment talents and strategies that are not in the daily limelight but show great performance or high-class risk management are sought after. For example, the strategy of Philipp Haas, the winner of the first Future Fundstars competition. Or the winner of the third season, Huy Nguyen, is also approaching the launch of his own fund.
The fourth season of Future Fundstars is now upon us and new talents are being sought! Because there are undoubtedly still many undiscovered gems in the investment industry that we want to bring into focus at this event. From today until 31st January 2023, investment talents from all asset classes can apply. There is no restriction on the investment universe. Existing funds in the UCITS shell may have a maximum of 20 million euros in assets under management. However, investment talents without funds can also apply for seed capital for their own strategy.
Increase to three million euros and new partners:
In the first three seasons of Future Fundstars, the investment or seed capital for the winning strategy was two million euros. This investment will be increased to three million euros for the fourth season. Furthermore, in addition to the long-term existing partners, HANSAINVEST, Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe and Netfonds, we welcome prominent new partners who support fund boutiques and fund advisors across the entire value chain. These are: Alpina Fund Management, Ampega, LGT Private Banking and the Swiss Fund Platform.
New addition to the jury - Volker Schilling:
The high-class jury also welcomes a new addition: Volker Schilling, founder and member of the board of Greiff capital management AG. With his Greiff PartnerLOUNGE, Schilling offers fund boutiques to remain independent but to cooperate structurally and to contribute their know-how. The result is lean and efficient structures for the benefit of investors.
