Our values reflect the personal values of the family we represent. As a family office, it is important for us to own company investments whose managers and co-partners share these values.
The most important are:
The values of our family office are strongly influenced by the family we represent. When selecting investments in companies, we always make sure that their managers and co-shareholders also identify with these values and live them in the companies.
Our great role model is Berkshire Hathaway with the management duo Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. By consistently applying the above values, they have created a company that has generated one of the highest returns for its investors - almost 20% p.a.. Besides that, there are many other similarities: e.g. Berkshire also holds its private investments permanently and manages them completely decentralised.
That's why we go to Berkshire's AGM every year. The day before, we organise an event where many sellers and managers of our holdings as well as friends from our network attend, present their companies and exchange ideas.
