Elements Capital Management, established back in 1994 as Nacionalna Finančna Družba is one of the oldest and largest independent Slovenian asset management companies that has recently refocused its core competence from mutual fund operations to an alternative investment management and advisory of distressed assets and private equity opportunities.

Company profile

Shifting its pioneering approach to an alternative asset universe while preserving past core competence.

Elements Capital Management evolves from a renowned Slovenian fund management company, established in 1994, at the beginnings of the Southeastern European capital markets.

Elements Capital Management, previously acting under the names Nacionalna Finančna Družba and Alpen Invest, managed the largest regionally invested UCITS fund. ECM’s team of experts has receipt several prestigious awards, including the title of the best fund manager in 2014 and 2015. The acquisition of the firm by Elements Capital Partners founding partner in 2014 strengthened its financial position and enabled access to international clients. As from November 2016, Elements Capital Management divested its mutual fund business, focusing solely on alternative asset universe.

Elements Capital Management with its senior management team, that evolves from Elements Capital Partners, had been heavily involved in advisory and management of distressed acquisitions for global hedge funds in the region. With its refocus solely on alternative asset class universe in 2016, it had launched several specialized investment funds incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Slovenia that govern the management of alternative investment funds.

True local insight, global financial expertise, proven track record, international investor’s network together with existing alternative investment infrastructure represent core pillars of ECM’s ONE STEP AHEAD model.
