Since the launch of our proprietary bond investment business almost 20 years ago we have been focusing on investing and trading in high yield fixed income products both in the developed and emerging markets. With years, most of our peers have been gradually giving up their self-sufficiency by shutting down some of their original functions and switching to prime brokers for research and market access.
Confidence rules. So does having the means to achieve it. We have been extensively consuming financial services and products as proprietary investors for almost 20 years. We know the tips and the tricks that are used at the conveyor belt on which these products are assembled. Now it is time to share our experience with our fellow investors in order to help them utilize proper investment vehicles, slash costs, stay safe from sales scams, and ultimately achieve better results. We can enhance our logic and handle investment risks by using what’s called a real-money approach. It is also fully transparent.
Most small and mid-sized investors are locally focused. They adopt this approach because of the cost of expanding coverage and due to a persistent lack of time. Thus, the expansion capacity of a typical hedge fund setup is capped by the physical ability of its individual managers to cope with running their present business. We complement the resources of money managers by taking them beyond their habitats to discover trading ideas in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Africa – that is, worldwide.
Instead, we present advice that is comparable to what you might hear in confidence from your peers, which will help you make timely and responsible decisions when you trade - what we call your local INTELLIGENCE.
Compliance is all about respect. Respect for fair rules, ethics and proper conduct. We put trust in those values and back them with our operating policies; these are rooted in the industry's fundamental reliance on responsibility. It is an illusion that the demands of the profession have become more rigorous. Those demands have always been sufficiently high. The only real change is that the monitoring methods which are used to assess service quality have been upgraded to suit the complicated products that we, the financiers, provide.
Making things happen: it’s when your idea comes into life in a timely manner and is implemented in the most cost-efficient way. By having your own trade execution platform, you will get the best trade terms without compromising on its costs. The hundreds of liquidity sources that are available to Schildershoven worldwide via direct trade lines multiply their value at times when markets are stressed, when liquidity becomes scarce and when everyone needs it the most.
