Sterling was founded in 1999 under the guidance of Dr. Tito Tettamanti, a Swiss investor and entrepreneur. It invests in the listed equity of small and mid-cap companies quoted on the major European exchanges. Sterling seeks to enhance the value of companies through, where appropriate, an engaged and supportive approach that aligns shareholder and management interests.
Sterling’s rigorous investment criteria and ownership approach means that it holds only a small number of disclosed strategic investments at any one time. It adopts a cautious stance and is willing to remain highly liquid in the absence of genuine value opportunities. In addition, Sterling avoids currency risk and operates without leverage.
