  • • C-QUADRAT continues to grow - the volume of C-Quadrat Investment Group increases by approximately EUR 200 million to over EUR 8 billion
  • • Continuation of the ARIQON funds with the addition of C-QUADRAT expertise to the management concept

C-QUADRAT Asset Management GmbH, a subsidiary of C-Quadrat Investment AG, has reached an agreement with the shareholders of the Austrian ARIQON Asset Management AG ("ARIQON") to purchase 100% of the shares in ARIQON and will thus - subject to the approval of the Austrian Financial Market Authority - take over the long-standing asset and fund manager ARIQON.

ARIQON Asset Management is one of the pioneers of Austrian bank- and insurance-independent asset managers and has managed several investment funds since 1999. In the field of multi-asset funds, ARIQON was one of the first providers in Austria.

C-QUADRAT Asset Management GmbH is one of the leading bank-independent asset managers in the German-speaking region with a focus on multi assets, sustainability and microfinance.

The ARIQON funds will continue to be invested according to a modern, quantitative asset allocation model. Flexibility in the asset allocation orientation, systematic risk management and rapid adaptation to changing market conditions remain at the heart of this model. In addition to traditional fund selection, ETF products are also included in the portfolios.
