AZIMUT Holding

AZIMUT is Italy’s leading wealth management company, and one of the largest independent asset management players in Europe. The Group specializes in asset management and offers financial advisory services to individual and corporate investors, mostly through its proprietary financial advisors' networks and teams.

The Group supervises over USD50bn of AuM as of June 2017 with offices and presence in Italy, Luxembourg, Ireland, China (Hong Kong and Shanghai), Monaco, Switzerland, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, Australia, Turkey and Chile.

The Group has been active since 1989 and has been listed on the Milan Stock Exchange since 2004. AZIMUT (DIFC) is part of the Italian blue chip index FTSEMIB 40 and of the European equity index STOXX Europe 600 Index, including the largest European listed corporations. A shareholders’ agreement (covering around 15% of the share capital) binds over 1,400 shareholders in a voting bloc, including employees, financial partners, portfolio managers and management. The remaining free float capital is held by individual shareholders and mostly international institutional investors (mutual funds, pension funds and insurance companies) who believe in AZNH stock, as they are convinced of the capacity of our management team and the unique strength of our business model.

Another strength lies in the integration of our management and distribution operations. Simplicity and efficiency — that’s the way we like it.
