Message to investors
Eleven years ago, a small group of experienced managers in the financial industry started SAI STAR with the strong conviction that the Romanian market needs an independent investment management company with an innovative strategic approach and oriented towards superior performance.
During this time, we have enjoyed the trust of a growing number of private and institutional clients, currently managing assets in excess of 100 million RON.
We are fully commited to excellence in everything we do. We strive to meet the financial and investment objectives of our clients through employing an experienced team of professionals, a rigorous risk control process and innovative investment strategies. We believe in diversification as the means to generate consistent low-risk results – a philosophy that means not only in the diversification at the level individual assets but also when it comes to actively rebalancing investments across various asset classes.
Although during the last few years we have witnessed one of the most difficult period in economic history, SAI STAR has proved its solidity and value. During 2009-2017, we obtained returns exceeding 50% for FDI STAR FOCUS and 95% for FDI STAR NEXT; our objective for the next period is to protect the real value of the invested capital and stand ready to take advantage of the expected economic recovery. Although we can not promise short term results, we are confident in achieving exceptional performance in the medium and long term.
We constantly look forward. The evolution of financial markets, the current sub-valuation of equities, as well as the reduction of interest rates on bank deposits make this, for any investor, a perfect moment for diversification and the placement of available funds in an investment management company. Together, we can create added value through responsibility and expertise.
