“Internet broker SW Probata GmbH focuses exclusively on tangible assets and offers closed-ended alternatives as well as direct investments. As we are neither bound by set targets or restrictions, our recommendations are unbiased, well-funded and objective – ideal for our clients,” explains Markus-Martin Schneider, who looks back on more than 30 years’ practical experience in the capital market and who founded SW Probata GmbH in 2012 together with his wife Renate. The experienced broker for alternative tangible assets mainly counts investors from Germany amongst his clients and, for some years now, has put a strong business focus on solar direct investments. “Photovoltaic direct investments are ideal for investors who expect compensation payments or are subject to high progressive taxation. With an expected annual 92 | Issue 75 | June 2019
yield of seven to eight per cent, they are also ideal as an investment without tax advantages,” explains managing director Matthias Hieber, who joined SW Probata GmbH in 2015 and who has more than 15 years of expertise in the analysis of closed-ended investments. “Our investment suggestions are solely based on the interests of our clients. Relating to solar direct investments, this means that we cooperate with several project developers. We are able to exclusively offer highly profitable investments in photovoltaic power plants from BadenWürttemberg. We work independently and tailor our recommendations to the individual needs of our clients,” stresses Markus-Martin Schneider. The specialists from SW Probata GmbH are convinced of the excellence of these actively proffered investments.“Any of the
investment alternatives we offer have undergone a thorough plausibility check. As we have surveyed some of the investment objects ourselves, we have even more detailed background information,” explains Matthias Hieber. SW Probata’s business model is long-term orientated, as Schneider elaborates: “We continue to provide support for our clients during the whole duration of their investment. In the case of photovoltaic direct investments, we support them through all project stages: from bank financing to the cooperation with tax consultants – without additional costs for the investor.” Next to their objective suggestions and comprehensive market knowledge, their open, customer-friendly approach speaks strongly in SWP’s favour: “We are an internet broker for closed-ended investment and can pass on cost advantages to our clients. Yet, we don’t act anonymously, but are available to our clients for personal discussions.” www.swp-sachwerte.de www.swp-solar.de
