What clients say about us
"ALPIMA makes smart, evidence-based, portfolio construction and visualization easy and much faster compared to doing it on spreadsheets. Their platform is very helpful to us, and they are very responsive" Dr. Jörg Marienhagen, CFA, CBA • Fund Management Multi Asset
"We have been actively using the ALPIMA platform for portfolio analysis for quite some time now. Portfolios can be created on the platform with ease and provide us with valuable insights into its history, current risk and performance, and future return expectations. The experienced ALPIMA team is always helpful and approachable and recently embedded our own corporate identity into the front end, allowing us now to also share insights with our clients directly" Stephan Jäggle • Executive Partner
"ALPIMA has helped us streamline the management of our multi-asset strategies by providing a flexible platform which allows us to combine a quantitative framework with active portfolio management. The visualisation of key performance and risk metrics coupled with strong portfolio analytics such as the factor decomposition module have enabled us to have a clearer view of our portfolios risk exposures. We continue to receive a high standard of service from ALPIMA and the platform is continually evolving to meet the needs of an ever-changing financial landscape" Patrick Karawani • Senior Investment Advisor

A Modular & Adaptable Architecture
Welcome to Object-Oriented Investing (TM). Creating a new strategy is as simple as building a Lego kit. We use Amazon Web Services to deliver a highly responsive platform whose computing power and storage capacity scale with demand. We can host our service in the cloud, on premise or both. Our adaptive infrastructure allows for frequent releases to keep pace with your needs as they evolve. Our library of allocation engines contains many market-tested engines to which you can add your own.
A key rule about investing better is to reduce costs, especially in the long run. We help you to keep fees low so you can perform for you and your clients.
We're independent from product providers. We do not receive commissions if you trade more, and our commitment to honesty and transparency means we strive to avoid conflicts of interest.
