Philosophy Investors Investments About Us

Success is not about money, but about people and skills

Buy low, sell high is one of the oldest investment wisdoms. How does Serenity Return Capital SRC try to live this principle? We believe that we must search our investment opportunities in atypical moments of a company's life. Such atypical moments can either be created through lacking succession plans or through turmoil created by an increasingly complex macro economical and geopolitical context affecting companies in our priority targeted regions: Western and Eastern Europe, with a primary focus on Switzerland and it's direct neighbors.

Such atypical moments could be caused by the struggles of an investor.

  • A struggling bank who decides for financial and strategic reasons to separate from minority VC holdings.
  • A yacht docked in the black see, for sale at a discounted price, as it would be ceased if it were to sail to the Mediterranean.
  • An underperforming asset in a large fund or trust
  • Or simply an entrepreneur struggling to find the right successor for his or her business.

Finally, SRC makes it a primary objective to pay a 5% dividend annually. Serenity Return believes that a healthy company must be capable to do both, reward its capital providers and invest into growth. By paying an annual dividend it forces the entire organization to focus on delivering sufficient return for both dividend and growth, thus creating a healthy business models.

Both qualified or private Investors who do not really look for a dividend can of course immediately capitalize their return by adding it to their investment at current NAV.
