The notion of purchasing power eludes
most people. They spend lifetimes seeking
to acquire money, only to find out that
money is not wealth at all. So, while the
idea of measuring investment gains on the
basis of purchasing power is theoretically
and empirically sound, it remains ignored.
Very few understand that more money
does not infer greater wealth.
—Edelweiss Holdings  Annual Letter to Shareholders

About
Founded in , Edelweiss Holdings is an open-end
investment company focusing on the preservation of
wealth against the erosion of the purchasing power
of money.
As stewards of capital, we seek to provide durable refuge
in an uncertain world. We reject the hollow output of an
unprincipled financial system, preferring instead the
timeless substance of honest entrepreneurship.
As responsible owners, we value independence, scarcity
and permanence both as to our thinking and also as to
the aggregate nature of our investment collection.
Our practice is intellectually honest, conservative,
disciplined, respectful of capital and entirely free from
conflicts of interest. Edelweiss Holdings employs its own
investment team reporting to a board of independent
directors.
