Kersio Sicav was launched in 2013 by three siblings passionate about investment who decided to apply all their years of experience to their own project. We began by managing our own assets, devoting all our energy to the analysis and selection of securities.
From Renta 4, we manage two equity SICAVs:
- Kersio Capital Sicav in Spain, regulated by the CNMV, a Bankinter SICAV with management delegated to Renta4.
- Kersio Lux in Luxemburg, regulated by the CSSF, an UBS sicav with management delegated to Renta4.
Kersio Capital holds a 5-star Morningstar rating and in 2015 was the SICAV with the highest return out of the approximately 3000 SICAV making up the Spanish universe. In 2014 it placed 19.
