Panrhema is an independent financial advisory firm which works exclusively in the interests of its private and institutional clients. The firm was set up in Milan in 2013, thanks to the passion and experience of Alberto Colpo and Nicola Perali. The firm has a financial investor who holds a minority interest.
The firm serves a small number of clients and provides them with customised packages which enables the multiple financial objectives of the clients to be identified with precision and, therefore, for the chances of success to be maximised.
Panrhema uses instruments which are normally offered by the major institutional investors in addition to a working method inspired by academia. Panrhema’s clients therefore have privileged access to particularly sophisticated and effective financial analysis instruments.
