Wermuth Asset Management 

Wermuth Asset Management GmbH (“WAM”) is a German family office and BaFin-regulated investment adviser. We prove through high risk-adjusted total returns that investment strategies which also insist on generating a positive environmental impact generate higher financial returns.

Attracting capital through performance, we intend to contribute to the move of trillions of euros into resource-efficient companies and renewable power – and thus help to slow and then stop climate change.

As the world economy is undergoing major structural changes we see outstanding investment opportunities. The internet, the rise in demand from emerging markets, competitive decentralized renewable energy and resource-efficiency have changed the rules of the game: a global “green industrial revolution” is under way with “energy, transport, food, and financial transitions” in full swing: many long-established companies and whole sectors will disappear while new champions are emerging.

“Investing in renewables and resource efficiency is not only morally right, but also highly profitable and supported by strong megatrends, which are not widely recognized. Exploiting this outstanding investment opportunity, delivering both high financial returns and a positive impact on the environment, is what we do.
