Philosophy

Philosophy

Our name Cannonball serves as a daily reminder of the personality of the American Saxophonist Cannonball Adderley (1928-1975), the legendary founder/father of „Soul Jazz“. This innovative music style combines open, situational communication between individual musicians, who spontaneously bring music into the team, with the collective principle of „Soul-orientation“, which one can also interpret as „with more soul“

Adderley founded his own combos, but also played in All Star Bands with the greats of his time: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Joe Zawinul were amongst his contemporaries and companions.

The team of partners and their art of interaction can also be likened to a symbol of an All-Star-Band: A small group of experienced and profiled personalities work together like a well-rehearsed orchestra, to be able to react to the individual requirements of the client and finding bespoke solutions.

Positioning

Positioning

As an investment office, in the area of financial markets, we are a special blend of investor and consultant. All partners have entrepreneurial experience. We are defined by our aspiration to build long-term relationships with our clients, who in turn, trust us to work alongside them to realise projects and co-invest.

We are happy to work together with other market players. We are not in competition with banks or family offices, but we support and complement them. In this way, we concentrate on clearly defined investment types. That is reflected in our engagement of an exclusive circle of clients and their supporting infrastructure.

Values

Values

The aim of our business is not short term gain, but sustainable wealth development. For us the foundations for the long-term success of our business are utmost discretion, transparency and reliability.

We would like to achieve profits with – and not from – our clients. Our work ethic is defined by this, as well also our moral perspective. To apply this in our daily business, is just as important to us as the actual service we provide.

We are convinced that successful partnerships are shaped by individuals, who bring a broad international experience. Our team has this experience and we strive continuously towards expanding our diversification.
