OUR ROOTS

Since 1987, ALPHA TRUST has remained dedicated exclusively to one activity: wealth management. An activity that combines science with art and has deep roots in the Greek space. Greece, throughout the centuries, and in today’s globalized world, continues to have significant international presence and top representatives in the field.

With people as our primary focus and continuous investments in knowledge and technology, we have built lasting relationships of trust with those who entrusted us with their wealth and dreams, as well as with regulators, the business community, and globally renowned counterparts.

The principles that govern us have stood the test of time and have proven resilient to the crises that the external environment has presented us with over the years. We believe they will also withstand future challenges.

OUR VALUES

“A MAN WITHOUT A SMILING FACE MUST NEVER OPEN A SHOP”

We believe in technology, but we believe even more in human interaction. We are always at our clients’ disposal, to inform them and to transform their desires into an investment portfolio.

We embrace every advancement in technology to be more friendly and helpful, without losing the interpersonal relationship.

4
“THE FLAP OF BUTTERFLY’S WINGS IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN CAN CAUSE A HURRICANE IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN”

Any event, no matter how small and distant, can directly or eventually impact our investments. We’ve all experienced it.

Continuous and rapid information, analysis, and thorough risk assessment are the advantage in management.

5

“KNOWLEDGE KNOWS NO LAND BOUNDARIES”

The manager has the advantage and the disadvantage of living and operating on planet Earth. In the future, they may even go further.

The great advantage is that they are not limited in their choices, and the disadvantage is that they are compared to everyone and everything, so they must be alert at all times and days of the year.

6

“ΟNE MUST TRAVEL TO LEARN”

The first requirement to select our holdings/ placements is to have a comprehensive and tangible picture. Our people constantly travel within and beyond our borders wherever we believe there are opportunities, no matter how far away they may be. They visit production units and observe them evolving, progressing, or falling behind.

They are in touch with business executives, foreign managers, government officials to form an opinion on the state of the global economy, individual states, and industries.

7
“MONEY GROWS ON THE TREE OF PERSISTENCE”

The ultimate value of an investor lies in persistence and patience. Whoever starts expecting quick and easy profits is usually disappointed.

The manager makes decisions every day, but the fruits of their labor become apparent over time.
