Shore Capital Ventures is still run by its two founding partners Lou Meijers and Peter Duisenberg, which guarantees the stability and independence of the company. We were established in Hong Kong in 1997 as an Institutional Asset Management Company with just a handful of clients, however due to overwhelming demand, our expertise was soon expanded enabling us to serve a wider range of clients leading to a strong focus on the Private Retail Investor, still operating from our Headquarters in Hong Kong.
In early 2013 Shore Capital Ventures will open a branch in Taiwan. The Taiwanese branch will focus on servicing our clients within the local region, keeping an eye on overlooked and undervalued companies and will conduct the majority of our back office functions. We are also opening a Beijing Bureau in the third quarter of 2013, so that we can increase our presence in the fastest and so-to-be largest economy the world has ever seen.
The team at Shore Capital Ventures comprises of seasoned and proficient investment professionals whose specialism ranges from managing the funds of Institutions and Charities to fulfilling the diverse needs of the Private Retail Investor. We do not only provide asset management services, but also offer advisory and consultancy services in all matters financial including planning and guiding our clients safely through investment decisions from start to finish, now and in the future.
Our 15 years of experience tells us that successful private wealth management requires specific essential proficiencies and knowledge. You can rely on our team who possess a substantial, far reaching international experience, gathered whilst working many years with large prominent financial and investment institutions. It is for this reason we are able to provide bespoke strategies which have successfully accommodated our customer’s financial goals and aspirations since 1997.
„Achieving great things is difficult but a possibility for anyone. Maintaining all the great things achieved is the real challenge. Shore Capital Ventures is here to make sure you are successful at both.”
- Peter Duisenberg
Making the step to allow someone to manage your investments is a very import decision. We have all taken calculated risks in both our personal and professional lives and this is why your wealth, your hard earned money has to be managed by a company you trust; a company of experienced investment professionals who have the understanding, knowledge and experience to advise you according to your financial objectives in the short, mid and long-term in a clear and transparent way.
Through our professionalism, high levels of service and consistent returns we gain your trust. Our team of advisors share with you their knowledge, experience and professional acumen which is the basis of a successful and mutually beneficial relationship for years to come.
Maintaining constant dialogue with your advisor achieves total transparency in each and every investment, allowing you to make informed investment decisions with all the facts and figures in front of you, ultimately allowing you to enjoy and understand the experience of investing successfully.
At all times we strive to be at your side supporting and advising you for the long term, safely improving the performance of your investment capital.
In the traditional world of wealth management, the advisors strictly follow the strategy of the corporation, with which sole aim of generating income and profits for the company. However, the world is always changing and we remain at the forefront of our industry being independent affords us the opportunity to provide client focused advice which is in line with the client’s best interests rather than that of our bottom line. This gives us the competitive advantage of having total autonomy in providing advice and not being restricted in strategy or selection of investments by the company’s profit margins.
We provide a safety net when investing, by structuring comprehensively analysed investment vehicles since we are aware that our customers ultimately assess us on the outcome of each transaction they conduct with us. Our advisors are always active on behalf of their clients to guide them along the safest route to their financial goals and aspirations.
Working together with our clients as a team, we take advantage of our unrivalled international network in the financial and business community across the world. Financial growth is found beyond the traditional boundaries of the past and this is why we use our strong links in industry and commerce to stay ahead of the curve, making astute decisions time and time again.
This is an essential element in making us stand out from the crowd and our established links in the world’s financial centres allows us and our clients privileged access to current economic information, in-depth share research and full unbiased analysis allowing you affordable access to the modern world of investing.
As a client of SHORE CAPITAL VENTURES you can benefit from the years of collective experience of our team and take advantage of investing with the safety net that we provide. We are specialists in the following market sectors globally:
Active wealth management is when your advisor manages your portfolio on your behalf, independently and continuously based on your agreement and input as and when required. This takes away the very time consuming process involved with managing a profitable portfolio allowing you to get on with your day-to-day duties leaving us to maintain the health and performance of your portfolio.
We tailor any investment solution by first listening to your financial goals and aspirations, your tolerance to risk and your time horizon. Upon your permission we will appraise your current portfolio advising where we think value can be added.
Through this process we are able to establish and structure a bespoke strategy which is focused on your financial goals and personal requirements. We then invest in line with this on the global markets.
By continuously monitoring your portfolio and always being available for you, providing immediate updates, shifts in price, press releases or market news that will positively or negatively affect the value of your invested capital. We also provide detailed reports at regular intervals and hold an annual investor meeting when we encourage our international base of clients to come and meet their advisors and see them in action at our offices in the financial heart of 21st Century Asia.
Alongside active wealth management and traditional wealth management, we also have the capacity to help our clients with matters such as tax, tax efficiency, financing and structuring. We do this by using our own experience and our extensive international network of external industry specialists, as well as the comprehensive knowledge of our advisory team, fully qualified to deal with all matters financial
The entrepreneurial spirit of our two founders still runs through the veins of SHORE CAPITAL VENTURES. When justified by our team of analysts, researchers and investment committee we invest in seed stage companies that are set to show outstanding capital growth and benefit both ourselves and our clients.

We focus on the following market sectors:
