  • Alcral AG Asset Management 1/1

Operating on a managed account basis, we have developed a fresh, innovative approach to existing investment practices. Unlike many other asset management offerings where much of the return is lost in fees, we have structured our platform so that our interests are aligned with that of the investor.


Operating in the traditional sphere of equity, commodity and currency markets we are able to consistently provide top quartile investment returns exceeding benchmarks, while maintaining sector leading risk/reward performance, regardless of market direction or sentiment.


Our strategies are managed by our experts employing strict, pre-determined criteria and by diversifying using a combination of algorithmic and manual trading. Constantly supervised by our risk executives; discipline, control and meticulous risk management are the foundations of our investment philosophy and success.



The combined effect of prioritising investor returns, the extra support mechanisms we employ and the low risk trading strategies all combined enable us to give exceptional returns.


We offer two different investment strategies to the market, follow your investment profile and objectives:
