Who we are
Kuros Associates has been founded in 2017 with a mission to improve the inefficiencies and faults we see across the whole value chain of the investment management industry. To do this, we built our business as an open platform through which we can offer innovative and carefully selected investment opportunities to institutional and professional investors. Our aim is to solve the main issues that arise when dealing with old fashioned big banks and big asset management organisations.
Our global network of investors comprises both professional fund managers as well as institutional asset allocators and family offices. We work with the best and brightest funds we are able to deal with as we recognise that our long-term success depends on the performance of their investment ideas.
Kuros Associates’ business comprises highly skilled professionals from a variety of different backgrounds. We call ourselves Associates to underline how strong and devoted to our clients our partnership is and to reinforce our belief that the only real bosses we have are our clients.
What we do
Capital Raising (Fund Managers & Corporations)
Kuros Associates created a unique framework aimed at providing third-party investment capital to fund managers and private companies, as well as delivering top-tier investment ideas to capital allocators. Our independence and the alignment of our interests with our clients are the keys to our success. Because we are directly compensated only by managers or investors, we completely avoid undisclosed cross-selling practices. Our ultimate goal is to improve capital flow efficiency within the financial industry, whilst promoting alignment between investors and their investment managers.
Wealth Advisory (Professional HNWI & Single Family Office)
At Kuros Associates we tailor all our activities to the needs of our clients. Accordingly, we offer Single Family Offices and qualified High Net Worth Individuals the opportunity to create a fully tailor-made investment and wealth management programme suited to their persona. Our Wealth Advisory practice allows our clients to access our expertise on matters of asset allocation, strategic investments, markets and wealth preservation.
Principal Investing (Professional Investors)
At Kuros Associates we strive to run the proprietary capital of the firm in alignment line with the advice and views we share with our clients. Our focus as Principal Investors is in the equity space, with particular attention on Innovation and Technology in both public and private markets. Furthermore we champion sustainability and positive impact as a first derivative of our investment returns.
Why we do it
To change the status-quo
Today big banks and fund houses dominate the asset and wealth management industries. They provide standardised investment solutions without trying to understand the different needs of their final investors. We want to change this. Our purpose is to improve the customer experience of capital allocators by scouting talented managers that are driven by achieving excellence in what they do.
To be different
We saw the flaws and imperfections of the big corporations and big banks from the inside and we decided to find a solution, a more human approach. Our goal is to improve the capital allocation dynamics of the Investment Management industry through creating a unique network of capital managers and investors. Ultimately, we aim to provide a platform where talented fund managers and idea-starved investors can align their interests.
To stay independent
We firmly believe that value resides in the smaller, independent fund managers who, over time, will offer superior investment solutions than their outsized sector incumbents. It is on the back of this conviction that we took on our mission to promote these independents to asset allocators and to develop Kuros Associates’s role as a trusted and proactive point of contact between the two.
