Who we are
APIS ASSET MANAGEMENT SA (« APIS AM ») is an independent asset management boutique based in Luxembourg.
The selection of Luxembourg as APIS AM’s first location was driven by the country’s position as the second largest fund center in the world and the premier private banking center in the Eurozone.
