Four different People from the Kontora Family Office portraied in a collage

With the human touch.

People whose jobs focus on values, appreciate the human touch all the more. Whether it’s how we interact as a team, with service providers, business partners, colleagues – and, of course, with our clients.

Puzzle Pieces

We’re aiming for the best results.

We grow assets by keeping a cool head and having a clear plan. But we’re also aware that personal interaction is pivotal to any good partnership. We bring our expertise to the table when we meet clients for the first time, allocate their assets or manage their wealth. But not just that. We want to understand who we’re dealing with. So that we create enduring bonds across generations.

We understand wealth. And the people behind that wealth. Our client team is in charge of providing strategic advice, looking after our clients, monitoring, and reporting on their assets.

The goal is to find the best investments in any asset class. The investment team is responsible for sourcing, screening, and monitoring investments. They also liaise with asset managers and control real-estate investments.

Understanding people – through soft skills

Understanding people – through soft skills

Hard work and passion are the cornerstones of wealth. And we respect that.

We can only protect a life’s work by understanding the goals, dreams and wishes of our clients. And help them create new opportunities. Which is why soft skills, like understanding people, are just as important as expertise.

It’s an understanding of people that fosters interaction in the first place.

To us, it’s important to get to know our clients. We see them as individuals and don’t offer off-the-peg solutions. Because even 15 years on, we’re always eager to discover the challenges awaiting us before we meet a new client for the first time.
