We grow and preserve our
clients’ financial assets

WHO WE ARE?

Cenzia Investment Advisors is a partner owned and independent multi-family office serving UHNW private clients, family investment companies and trusts.

We always look to identify each client’s individual needs and goals. Our portfolio management principles are based on thorough analysis, solid risk assessment and a close dialogue with and immediate access to the managers of our clients’ investments.

Our clients appreciate working with a focused team that ensures direct personal access to senior partners, regular dialogue based on trust and value preservation. Together, these elements provide our clients with superior risk adjusted returns.

Cenzia was founded in 2008 and currently manage NOK 2,5 billion in assets.

“Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things”

Isaac Newton

OUR SERVICES

Good risk adjusted returns are generated through disciplined management.

In all aspects of our management we seek to avoid unnecessary complexity as this contributes to increased risk and rarely any improved results. With a good understanding our clients’ desires, needs and risk tolerance we establish a suitable portfolio strategy. This strategy considers (i) relevant asset classes, (ii) asset allocation, (iii) historic investments, (iv) liquidity needs and (v) complexity.

Successful manager selection and continuous monitoring of these managers is an essential part of our job. We are fortunate to find many of these managers close to home, but selectively compliment these with managers from abroad with a superior track record based on our extensive network. We meet with these managers on a regular basis, no matter where they are. The further away from home they are, the more cautious we are in taking on manager risk. As such, we typically prefer well established managers. We invest with managers employing a variety of strategies (passive, long only and long / short), but always seek the best terms for our clients. Any fund rebates are passed on to the client in full.

We have the greatest respect for the challenge of market timing, but seek to reduce risk at times when markets are expensive based on key metrics. Equally, we aim to have liquidity available in times of market corrections to benefit from the opportunities that arise at such times. Even still, a well diversified portfolio across different asset classes is our best strategy to preserve capital through times of turbulence while at the same time participate in markets upturns.
