Meet The Team

A brief intro, ahead of hopefully speaking in person!

Swen Lorenz

Thanks to his 30+ years of working in the investment industry, he personally knows some of the world's best portfolio managers (including the ones you should know about, but are unlikely to come across by yourself). Sarnia AM is the company he founded to help private investors learn about these outstanding portfolio managers and get access to their expertise.

Our Funds

Working hard to bring the world's best

We are working hard to bring the world's best portfolio managers to a broader audience. Some of our funds will be newly launched, others will be feeder funds to provide access to managers that you should have heard of (but haven't, yet). A portfolio manager with a net performance of 25.67% p.a. over 23 years? This is the underlying track record of one fund that we are working to make accessible to a global audience.
