Compelling results

Outperformance, capital preservation, and regular distributions if required.

Significant Outperformance from 2006 to 2018

  • Archimedes Invest Plus EUR versus DJ Euro Stoxx 50:
    +23.43% (+1.82% p.y.)

Almost identical performance as Index form 2006 to 2018 - despite costs for hedges and funds

  • Archimedes Invest Plus CHF versus Swiss Market Index (SMI):
    -3.02% (-0.22% p.y.)

Performance in the crisis year 2008

  • Archimedes Invest Plus CHF  -10.23% (SMI: -34.77%)
  • Archimedes Invest Plus Euro -12.22% (DJ Euro Stoxx 50: -44.28%)

Cottonfield developed capital-preserving portfolio components before the financial crisis hit, and has been deploying them successfully ever since. It devised special mandates for the current investment environment that allow for distributions while preserving value. This form of investment is particularly suited to foundations, which depend on regular distributions. Cottonfield develops and manages its own funds and mandates, particularly in areas where there are no market offerings to protect and preserve value.
