Milestones

Our Logo

The walnut tree is our symbol, taken from the garden of our founder. Solidly anchored in the ground, it provides year-on-year returns to its owner in the form of walnuts. These walnuts can be easily stored and enjoyed for years to come. The number of walnuts varies greatly from year to year, but the sum over a three-year period is constant. This is what we aim to achieve for our clients. The tree is here to remind us of this objective every day.

We are happy to support you!
