1741 Asset Management Ltd, a subsidiary of Notenstein Private Bank Ltd, is one of Switzerland's leading quantitative asset managers and has developed numerous fact-based and successful investment strategies. 1741 Asset Management combines independent research with the latest academic findings in order to develop new and enhance existing investment strategies.
Due to our close links with leading universities around the globe, 1741 Asset Management functions as Notenstein's think-tank when it comes to researching and implementing innovative investment strategies. The focus here is on quantitative investment solutions developed through targeted application of the latest financial theories. These investment solutions integrate the output from fact-based research and investment processes that aim to exploit inefficiencies on global capital markets.
Our investment strategies for institutional clients have a successful long-term track record throughout the world. We strive to serve our clients in the best possible manner, namely by generating a superior risk-adjusted return and by delivering excellent quality of service.
Due to our close links with leading universities such as the University of St. Gallen and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, our investment strategies factor in the very latest research findings and are in a process of continuous development.
One specific example of our collaboration with researchers is our global equities strategy, Active Indexing. Results of research at Stanford University and other leading economics faculties have shown that investors often make forecasting errors. These collective miscalculations lead to exaggerations at a country and global sector level – which are exploited by our Active Indexing strategy. In recent years, we have utilised the results of other research projects to launch additional strategies that are also based on state-of-the-art financial research. These include, for instance, our Global Diversificationasset-allocation strategy.
