Econopolis was born of our unique vision of our (financial) world, economy and society after the "Econoshock".
Econopolis (°2009) translates the words in the Econoshock book and TV series into actions: asset management for the new financial and economic age.
With an unusual approach, attuned to the new economic realities and built on sacred basic principles of impartiality, sustainability and transparency.
A team of specialists translates the Econopolis principles into a unique strategy for your assets, focused on capital preservation and growth via the numerous opportunities offered by the new economic landscape.
Econopolis aims to be a quality label for financial-economic investments and advice. Our organisation was born during the financial crisis of 2008-09. That means that we had a blank page on which to design a new organisation, taking account of everything that went wrong in the financial sector. We invest continually in creativity, quality and human talent. We also screen our financial partners for their sustainable features, ethics and transparency.
From our genuine concern for the world, our clients and our co-workers, we always look with a critical eye at our ideas and decisions. That same concern makes us aware of our social commitments. Acting with ethical and social responsibility is a fundamental component of the way we work.
In our strategies we look at the long term; we are not swayed by the issues of the day. We communicate clearly and openly about our strategy and insights. In this way we try to build long-term relationships with the investors in our funds. That is the best guarantee for success and satisfaction.
Our management is built on a number of foundations and principles that we believe make all the difference:
Simplicity & honesty
We focus on simplicity, transparency and the long term, in close dialogue with the client.
Every client is different, every assignment is different. There is no such thing as a standard approach at Econopolis. Tailor-made is our style.
Ethical and sustainable
From our genuine concern for the world, our clients and our co-workers, we always look with a critical eye at our ideas and decisions.
Faithful to our 10 principles
Preserving Wealth, Security, Simplicity, Transparency, Reputation, Slow Money, Trust, Discretion, Stewardship, Professionalism

… who believe in open & transparent communication
Econopolis is a transparent organisation. A company that believes in open communication about our opinions and strategy.
We share our unbiased views on the economy, the financial world and our society through traditional and new media channels. We explain our investment strategy to our clients in a very comprehensible and accessible way, so they understand in detail what we are doing and why.
And we organize seminars for the Econopolis community with the world’s leading economic opinion makers. Economists with a clear insight, a well argued opinion, a global view. Opinion leaders who see through the mist of every day events. And focus on what really matters: the bigger picture.
Over the past years, we had the pleasure to welcome such renowned economists and visionary speakers as Jeremy Rifkin, Nassim Taleb, Nouriel Roubini, John Mauldin, James Robinson, Pierre Lagrange, Brad Templeton and many more.
We believe in the art of transparent communication: challenging mainstream opinions and questioning generally accepted truths. Through the confrontation of opinions and fact based arguments we build a long term strategy and an investment policy aimed at safeguarding your assets and helping them to grow in challenging financial times.
