«If you’re looking for a sustainable investment approach with a long-term view – Independet Capital Group is the ideal partner for you».


Our Core Competencies are Wealth Management as well as Advisory. Our strong commitment to quality fulfils the highest industry standards for private and institutional investors.


ICG’s Wealth management and Advisory approach is sustainable and follows a long term view. The Asset Allocation is dependent on the individual goals of every client as well as on macroeconomic factors, relative risks and investment opportunities perceived by our experienced investment professionals. The realisation and implementation of the individual strategy is based on a “Core-Satellite-Approach”, where we select cost-efficient core investment products with actively managed or theme-based satellite-investment-solutions as add-on. The core of a client’s portfolio follows a strategic long-term view, where a portion of the portfolio will be allocated in short-term tactical investment opportunities to provide an enhanced yield. To keep the expenses on a minimum level, we try to avoid large portfolio reallocation.

Based on our systematic investment approach we try to select the investment solutions with major investment opportunities for our clients. A thoughtful due-diligence, where we evaluate chances and risks is done prior to the effective allocation. Our long-term goal is to generate a risk adjusted return with a bespoke investment strategy.

Investement Strategy

How much risk are you willing and able to take? What are your expectations about returns? Also, what is your horizon? These are only some of many central questions we need to have a clarifying discussion about to develop the perfect investment strategy for your needs on which your portfolio will be based on. With our strictly adopted systematic investment approach, we guarantee to follow your respective strategy and provide a balance between performance and risk. 


Amid diverse and bespoke specialised strategies, we provide classic strategies like defensive, balanced and dynamic as our exemplary portfolios. The core difference between these strategies are the risk return expectations. We believe, investors with a healthy risk appetite, should have risk in their portfolio to a certain degree. 

The following graphic emphasise this philosophy:

Investement Process

A structured investment process and philosophy is mandatory to see chances and weight risk. In the very centre are your goals and needs as well as your detailed return objectives, willingness and ability to bear risk and of course you’re investment horizon. As soon as we worked out the framework of your investment philosophy, we define your bespoke investment strategy. The strategic asset allocation builds the core of your portfolio, which is the long-term driver of the portfolios return.

To get hold of short-term investment opportunities, the portfolio gets enhanced with its tactical asset allocation which allows a deviation from the core investment strategy. This part of the portfolio is actively and dynamically managed. To locate these short to midterm investment opportunities, it is essential to have a strict and disciplined decision making process. Our team developed a systematic model which gives us signals on how and when to act – without a negative emotional behaviour. Thanks to this in-house model, we can enhance your opportunity/risk profile sustainably.
