Alken Asset Management

How it began

Who we are

Alken was established in 2005 as an independently owned firm, starting as an European Equity specialist boutique. 


The core principle behind our investment philosophy has been to maximise the long-term shareholders’ return consistently. 


In 2017, Alken decided to start a quantitative business with the launch of Cabestan Quant Research. After four years of in-depth research, the first strategy was launched in March 2021. 


In 2018, Alken expanded into fixed-income and announced the appointment of a seasoned team with a broad expertise in the asset class. Two strategies were launched in the same year.

Our objective was to build a diversified product portfolio offering which aims at addressing different investors' risk profiles.

In 2023, Alken took a step further in its strategic development as a firm by entering the private debt space with the hire of an experienced team of alternative credit specialists.
