Aescap 2.0 works with a proven Dutch model of a so called mutual fund, known in Dutch as FGR (Fonds voor Gemene Rekening), in which in fact the fund is owned by all investors together. We have chosen to focus ourselves on making the right investments and have therefore outsourced all administrative matters.
The management of the fund entity, the Aescap 2.0 Foundation, as well as the administration of the participants is performed by a renowned trust office, the SGG Group. SGG is also responsible for our financial reporting and calculates the NAV (Net Asset Value) on a monthly basis. The auditing of the annual accounts is done by a top 10 auditor, Mazars. Furthermore, the fund has an Investor’s Committee, that supervises the fund manager, and consists of representatives of the investors in the fund. The fund is 100% ‘tax transparant’.
