BVP AMC Launch

March 2024

We are excited to introduce the latest innovation in financial products: the Bitcoin Volatility Premium AMC.

The Bitcoin Volatility Premium invests algorithmically in Bitcoin and US Dollars with the goal of capturing a volatility premium while optimizing the risk-return profile of Bitcoin investments and providing liquidity to the BTC/USD spot market. 

With over USD 50 million in assets under management, this product is now available to external investors. Please note that it is suitable only for professional investors.




2X for the first time

February 2024

We are proud that one of our products has achieved more than 100% return for the first time. Since its inception in June 2022, the Cryptocurrency Frontier AMC has exceeded all our expectations. We specialise in the dynamic world of cryptocurrencies and dive deep into the rich diversity of altcoins, with a clear focus on outperforming Bitcoin.









Global Quality AMC closed

February 2024

Two of our key principles are responsibility and self-reflection. The strategy of our actively-managed stock product, the Global Quality AMC, has not delivered the desired returns. Consequently, we have taken the decision to close the AMC.

The reasons for the closure of this product are as follows:
· The performance of Global Quality AMC was not in line with our expectations; the strategy did not work out as we had hoped. We are therefore abandoning it altogether, and focusing on strategies that are succeeding.
· After recognizing that this strategy was not working as intended, the family decided to withdraw from the Global Quality AMC. We believe that without personal involvement from the family, it would be a conflict of interest to continue offering this product to customers. Hence, we are shutting down this AMC and it will no longer be sold.
· We value our entrepreneurial culture of fostering new projects. Nevertheless, value through quality takes priority. By concluding the Global Quality AMC, we concentrate our capabilities on value-generating ventures. Sometimes less is more.

Message from the CEO

DECEMBER 2022

From my personal perspective, at Zeltner & Co. 2022 has been an incredibly successful, instructive, exciting, and interesting year that has been full of surprises.

· We have built a great environment within credibly motivated employees, very well qualified experts, reliable partners, and customers who have put their faith in us.
· We have been awarded the latest asset management licence by FINMA.
· We have launched 5 more certificates.

We have launched unique products, especially in direct/private lending and crypto.   Our team can confidently say that the successful build-up is complete. The year has demanded a lot of energy and sacrifice from everyone. I am even more proud of the fact that all of us have added value throughout the year.  Anyone who knows us will be aware that our motto for 2023 is to shift up another gear. Although the products Swiss Industrial Metal and Private Lending enjoyed positive and stable performance in 2022 and the Cryptocurrency Frontier AMC beat Bitcoin despite the negative mood on the markets, we are not satisfied. We want to create value for our customers with every single product. I am convinced that we have the right people, experts, and challengers to achieve this goal and I believe in the vision and conviction behind every single investment and piece of analysis.

I wish everyone a well-deserved festive season and a happy new year. Don't take too long to rest - the race goes on.
