Dr. Boaz Barack of Bonart Financial Performance, Zurich, and Dan Dobry, the Chairman of GlobalNet, collaborate for creating Alternative Investment Funds to be accessible as Listed Securities
GlobalNet, a global investment house specializing in alternative investments, announces a partnership with BONART, an advisory and execution wealth management company in Zurich, Switzerland, owned by Dr. Boaz Barack. The two companies are expected to merge later in the year and create alternative investment products for Israeli and international investors trading on the Swiss stock exchange. The strategy is implemented along with a holistic view of financial planning aligned with fulfilling life goals.
The need for accessibility to alternative investment products is a global trend. It has been accelerating, especially since the outbreak of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The yield on bonds has dropped, and the prices of equities are very high. Bond yield has fallen significantly, making alternative investment routes like real estate funds and credit very popular.
In the last two years, deep ties have developed between GlobalNet, who I am collaborating with and BONART FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE Ltd, which operates in Switzerland with licenses. The companies will run a forum for issuing alternative products and serving as their asset managers. BONART is a private company founded in 2010 by Dr. Boaz Barack and, over the last few years, has grown exponentially. In the past, Barack was a Member of the Senior Management of the two leading Swiss banks: Credit Suisse and UBS.
GlobalNet launched in 2020 a new line of investment products called GDI – Global Diversified Investments: Certificates that invest in a wide variety of alternative investment strategies. These certificates are issued in Switzerland and are registered as Swiss securities on the Zurich Stock Exchange, having an international serial number (ISIN). It allows such securities to be purchased through Israeli bank accounts. BONART has also established relationships with international financial institutions and thousands of family offices buying such products, developed in collaboration with GlobalNet.
