Matterhorn Asset Management AG

MAM was founded by Egon von Greyerz in the 1990s as a private investment company. Egon had always held a deep respect for analysing and managing risk in both his corporate operations and personal investment activities.

By the end of the 90s, Egon determined that global risk was growing increasingly apparent as debts and derivative levels rapidly rose. He had already been interested in physical gold as the ultimate protection-asset against accelerating risks in the financial system.

In the early 2000s, MAM set up a system for buying and storing gold, choosing the highest quality refinery and vaulting partners for acquiring and storing the same.

The system was initially set up for Egon’s own family funds and those of a few key investors and business partners. At that point, there was no intention to open the initiative to outside investors.

In early 2002, Egon made major investments into physical gold when the price was $300 per ounce.

Due to the growing demand from other investors around the world, MAM became a Swiss regulated company in 2005. Since then, MAM has grown from a private risk management operation for personal funds into a global enterprise.

MAM now serves sophisticated clients in over 75 countries in their wealth protection through the acquisition and storage of physical precious metals.
