Reassuring history, promising future
More than 150 years of collective experience
Iolcus Investments AIFM’s founders were the major shareholders of the P&K Group, one of the most successful investment firms in Greece.
The P&K Group commenced its operations in 1996 and within five years became the largest independent (non-bank related) player in the Greek market. It became a dominant player in equities trading, investment banking and asset management employing over 200 financial professionals.
It counted among its clients first-class international investment banks as well as end-clients from Europe and the U.S.A. The firm was the first to introduce online trading for Greek stocks, to implement a direct market access platform for institutional investors, to apply rigorous risk management systems for its proprietary trading desk; and, to establish and advise from Greece a global macro hedge fund. Notably, the firm was one of the main market makers in the Athens Derivatives Exchange and Liffe for Greek securities.
In 2007, P&K Group was acquired by the National Bank of Greece, the largest Greek bank at the time. To date, P&K Group remains NBG’s sole domestic acquisition.
Iolcus Investments AIFM was founded in 2011 (initially conceived as Iolcus Investments SA) as an independent Alternative Investment Fund Management company, headquartered in Athens. It manages the Apolis Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) that it has set up, based in Luxembourg. It also manages individual portfolios for private and institutional investors with custodian banks in Greece, Switzerland and Luxembourg. Lastly, it provides investment advice, structuring holistic wealth management solutions for individuals and family offices.
Iolcus Investments AIFM has been licensed and is regulated by the Hellenic Capital Markets Commission (license number 2/805/28.12.2017) and is a member of the Hellenic Fund and Asset Management Association.
