WIP Asset Management

About Us

WIP Asset Management Oy is an independent asset management company offering discretionary portfolio management for private persons, companies and organizations. We also manage a mutual fund.

Established in Helsinki in 1995, we have created added value and offered strong returns for our clients for more than 20 years. We have extensive experience and considerable understanding of Nordic equities which are our main focus for investments. Over these years our investment team has demonstrated exceptional performance even during varying market conditions.

Our way of managing assets is comprehensive. We have a thorough view of the client’s financial wealth and we adjust our services according to the client’s needs. The client’s priorities along with ensuring stable future wealth is the guarding principle. Our values at WIP are integrity, expertise and reliability and we believe in building long lasting relationships with both our clients and partners.

Our Investment Philosophy

Our aim is to deliver solid returns to our clients through a long-term investment approach where we invest in Nordic high quality companies at affordable prices. The strategy is “buy and hold”, thus short-term fluctuations are of little importance. We stick to our strategy and are not affected by shifts in market sentiment unless the companies’ market views change drastically.

The core of our investment strategy is understanding the business of the companies we invest in, whether it is in equities or corporate bonds. Returns are driven by stock and bond selection, and a thorough analysis and knowledge of these companies is a key element to our investment philosophy. Our client’s assets are invested selectively in companies that meet our investment criteria.
