WHO WE ARE

KNOW-HOW, EXPERIENCE AND UNCONDITIONAL VALUES

PHILOSOPHY AND VALUES

Azimut is committed to its independence — an independence won and defended with determination. We are independent of banking, insurance and industrial groups.We are proud to be the largest independent asset manager in Italy, in a position to offer effective asset management services and solutions based on specific, non-generalist expertise. Where our know-how does not reach, we forge distribution agreements with only the best industry operators in Italy and around the world. Our excellence knows no bounds.

Independence

Fundamental in the provision of tailor-made investment solutions. We respond to the needs of our clients, not external variables.

Readiness

We are always up to date and ready to guarantee the best investment solutions identified given the current context. In finance, it is essential to keep up with the times.

Stability

We seek to earn our clients’ trust and confidence by guaranteeing our constant presence, which is fundamental.

Partnership

Our interests have always coincided with the satisfaction of our clients. We draw on various sectors to make sure that happens.

Simplicity

We leave creative finance and exotic products to the others. All too often, fancy words are a smokescreen or incompetence.

SUSTAINABILITY

We have chosen to integrate ESG criteria in our corporate and investment management processes with the ultimate objective of contributing to a sustainable development of the world.

Global

Our footprint across global markets, combined with local in-depth knowledge and multi-decade experience, empowers the ability to generate value for our clients.

A MODEL OF INNOVATION

We like to think of ourselves as different from the others, and that is quite simply because we are different. Our business model aligns the interests of the portfolio managers, financial partners, employees and management personnel who together drive the company in their capacity as shareholders. Because this is our strength — we are our own shareholders. A shareholders’ agreement (covering around 21% of the share capital) binds over 1,900 shareholders in a voting bloc, including employees, financial partners, portfolio managers and management. The remaining free float capital is held by individual shareholders and mostly international institutional investors (mutual funds, pension funds and insurance companies) who believe in Azimut stock, as they are convinced of the capacity of our management team and the unique strength of our business model.
