Patents,
the missing factor for investment decisions

Our mission is to find companies with high future potential based on their IP-value in order to derive alpha-generating investment strategies.

Patents represent a future legal monopoly on certain inventions and thus a legal competitive advantage.

They are intangible assets that are largely invisible on balance sheets.

We make these assets become measurable and provide them as an early indicator of future company growth.
