Niche Alternatives


There is a section within the alternative investment space where inefficiencies are numerous, competition is low, and active management by skilled and focused investment specialists can add substantial value. We call this segment of the investment universe “Niche Alternatives”.

Niche Alternatives build on the concept of superior risk and reward. The rewards are clear: this segment of the alternative investment market has a strong track record of outperformance, and is currently very attractively priced in comparison to traditional as well as established alternative asset classes.

Progressive has extensive experience across alternative and niche markets, and the team is well positioned to target innovative investments opportunities that are beyond classic alternative investment strategies.

The offering is designed mainly for institutional clients, family offices and HNWI.

Liquid Alternatives


Commitment to trend following, counter trend and volatility strategies in collaboration with partners. Our flagship product is Tulip Trend Fund, managed by Transtrend N.V. based in Rotterdam NL. The underlying strategy has a successful track record of over 25 years and has historically delivered strong diversification benefits, particularly in an environment of an equity bear market. 

Extensive expertise in alternative multi-manager solutions serving institutional investors. Our investment team is specialised in alternative alpha, mainly diversifying alpha and market neutral alpha strategies, as well as in alternative beta with a focus on single and multi risk premia strategies. All aiming to deliver uncorrelated returns to traditional and alternative assets.

Customised Solutions


Progressive Capital Partners has comprehensive expertise and long-standing experience in developing as well as managing customised alternative solutions for institutional clients according to their preferences, regulatory requirements and internal resources. Our solutions are customised to each client for a specific investment strategy and structure while being best suited to meet its objectives and constraints.

Our offering consists of customised solutions aiming at generating attractive risk-adjusted returns while managing the downside risk by investing in uncorrelated alternative risk premia, alternative alpha strategies, and niche alternatives.

We combine expertise

with social skills.

Performance, transparency

and alignment of interests.

At Progressive Capital Partners, we respect our clients and treat them as partners; we listen to them and respond to their needs. Consequently, we share a strong commitment always to put the client first and provide excellence and expertise in client service.

We follow a strict code of values in everything we do. We conduct ourselves professionally, ethically, responsibly and with integrity at all times.

Our aim is not just to sell products and services, but to acquaint clients with the products and to provide them with information for a full understanding of the respective strategies. We discuss the risks and opportunities associated with them and review how particular strategies might work within the context of a client’s portfolio.

We place great emphasis on long-term returns and do not chase managers and strategies on the basis of their most recent performance.

Patience, discipline and a focus on quality represent key elements of our philosophy.

What distinguishes us from most of ours peers is an approach founded on principal-investing combined with extensive practical experience. We align our private and company assets along with our client’s.
