How is a strategy index (AMC) initiated?

Actively Managed Certificates

Actively Managed Certificates (AMCs) are dynamically structured products that allow active management of a chosen investment strategy in an index.


You as manager can launch your investment strategy quickly and easily, with the time-to-market reduced to a matter of weeks. You may wonder, how is that possible? It's because of our proven track record, since we already opened up key markets for AMCs, including Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Luxembourg.


Investors are looking for new ideas: like your investment idea on our platform. We provide you with outstanding market access and the benefit of our in-depth knowledge. You, in the meantime, can concentrate on your core competency: designing, conducting discretionary management and monitoring investment strategies.
