Who we are
We believe, as Alexis de Tocqueville wrote, that “THERE IS MORE INTELLIGENCE AND WISDOM IN A NUMBER OF MEN UNITED THAN A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL“. We may not be a large “number” (although the team is growing), but we are diverse, passionate and open to discussion. This is why our investment decisions are not taken by a single, supposedly talented individual, but result from common WORK, CURIOSITY and CONFRONTATION OF MUTIPLE IDEAS. We are all in this to flourish as individuals, but also to welcome new members to the team as more investors come aboard.
