Capital One Partners SA (K1P) is a Swiss asset manager of collective schemes trusted by institutional investors to manage their assets by seeking antifragile alpha.
Although we're known for our corporate governance assessment and activist investing, we also have a broad expertise in mathematics, psychology and fundamental analysis. We use a combination of qualitative and quantitative tools to capture and protect hard-to-find sources of alpha across European public equities.
Founded in 2018 over our early forties, in downtown Geneva, K1P began with five employees aiming at seeking the optimal balance of risk and reward by creating the concept of absolute antifragile alpha during the COVID pandemic.
Today, the firm accelerates its institutional-grade fund management capabilities, infrastructure and team, sharing common values of discovery and curiosity spirits, diversity, female empowerment and entrepreneurship.
With more than twenty years of successful experience in friendly activist transactions and Corporate Governance, supporting CEOs and creating value, we created K1P® to offer a new asset management focused on Absolute Antifragile Alpha.
We manage equity strategies and funds through a game-changer philosophy:
Focus on strategic European Public Equities,
Capture and protect Alpha generation,
Deep understanding of European Corporate Governance cycles, connecting with CEOs and Board members,
Create long term shared value with full alignment with investors.
INSPIRING NEXT GENERATIONS
Understanding underperformance and Corporate Governance cycles.
We are the sole investor with a pure quantitative screening combining
underperforming Public Equities versus peers and understanding of Corporate Governance cycles.
Understanding the magic combination of CEOs, Board members and strategic shareholders.
In 2013, when, we met the first CEO of one of the Blue-Chips companies we were following, alongside with his Supervisory Board, we knew we had to build our strategy on an obvious alchemy that could create and share value.
Since we made our first investment, we succeeded in onboarding several other firms...A great combination to significantly impact the industry.
Understanding that we cannot predict the real world but need to be always protected.
We are constantly prepared for any upcoming crisis and unpredictable events.
We focus on risk management as our first routine to be systematically hedged.
