Philosophy

IDS Capital is a single family office dedicated to alternative investments with a bridge toward long-only investments.

Our philosophy and core values are embedded in our company name.

Integrity
All employees will be expected to conduct themselves with integrity. Any decision made, no matter how small, will be made within a framework of rigorous integrity. Reputation should never be sacrificed for the sake of profit, competitive pressure, or ease.

Independence
At the firm level, total independence of judgment has to be applied above all other consideration within the limits defined by each client.

Dedication
Focus on what individuals can do best inside the defined objectives and missions of the firm, is key to alpha-generation and profitability.

Diversification
Combining different asset types, investments styles and asset managers enhance the risk/return profile of the client investments while reducing the counterparty risk.

Serenity
Sound portfolio construction processes are key elements of our approach and geared towards the best equilibrium between clients objectives, market opportunities and risk management guidelines.

Specialisation
IDS Capital is specialised in proving investment solutions to clients within comprehensive investment processes and risk management frameworks.

Respect and Transparency are the foundation of our relationship with all our clients.

Respect
In their interaction with one another and with the outside world, all employees are expected to treat people with respect. That means listening to ideas that might not reflect one’s own views and it also means articulating controversial thoughts in a timely and thoughtful manner.

Transparency
Clients will be entitled to receive the maximum level of transparency including regular investment letters describing their investments, the firm’s view on investment opportunities and profit attribution.
