Best practices of all market segments
All segments in the public investment space have strengths and weaknesses. With the quantitative and systematic approach of a fund manager, the efficiency of a Robo-Advisor and the personalization and service of a Wealth Manager, froots combines the strengths of all segments, and avoids the weaknesses. Additionally, because of our efficiency we can offer the product at an attractive price.
Tailored Wealth Management
Depending on your willingness to accept volatility, your life situation, and your investment objectives we tailor one or more portfolios that suit you. Conceptually, it can be useful to divide your wealth into three buckets. Money that one might need in the short run should avoid volatility, and potentially be kept in cash. Money that one plans to spend in 3-5 years can be invested, but only in liquid assets and with limited volatility. Everything that one does not expect to use in the following five years can be invested with the aim of long-term growth. This means counter-cyclical bets can be made, more volatility can be accepted and less liquid assets with a high expected yield can be applied.

No worries when it comes to investing
Franziska has been thrifty her whole life and now she wants her money to work for her. Because she doesn't like to sleep with too much uncertainty, her portfolio is more conservative than that of other people in a similar life situation. This way, she no longer needs to worry about her money.
Diversified asset management
Andreas travels the world for work and knows how many opportunities are available in different regions. Froots invests his wealth broadly and precisely where the greatest long-term opportunities for his money lie.
Long-term asset accumulation
Konrad hat vor kurzem einige Immobilien geerbt. Um insgesamt jedoch besser aufgestellt zu sein, möchte er jetzt einen Teil seines Vermögens auch langfristig am Kapitalmarkt investieren. Bei froots hat er anfangs klein gestartet und kontinuierlich aus Wohnungsverkäufen sein Portfolio aufgestockt.
Get your wealth managed
Herbert has worked diligently for 40 years and built up a small fortune. While he lives off his savings, he doesn't want them to lose value due to inflation. That's why he has three different portfolios: a secure one for his needs in the next two years, a medium-term one to cover expected expenses for the next five years, and a long-term one to allow his remaining money to continue growing.
What differentiated froots from the rest?
One clear and attractive fee
When it comes to money, transparency is crucial. This is why froots charges a single fee of 1% that drops over time and with assets under management.
For comparison: the prices of a representative private bank. Hidden product costs make most private banks twice as expensive.

We have answers to all your questions...
How can I invest my saved wealth profitably?

How do I decide whether to manage my wealth myself or have it managed for me?
