WHO IS PHOSPHOR
The Founders of Phosphor come from the world of financial management and the world of entrepreneurship.
Arnoldo Valsangiacomo has an economic education and many years of experience in the financial sector on the European scene. In his professional career, he has held roles as a stock trader, stockbroker, broker, investment advisor, and fund manager. In 2010 he launched, as co-founder and managing partner, the investment company ETHENEA Independent Investors AG present throughout Europe. In the same year he founded Phosphor with Dr Seegy, where he currently holds the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Dr. Friedrich Michael Seegy
After completing his studies in the pharmaceutical field at the University of Pavia, he acquired a deep knowledge of the sector. In 1979 he embarked on his entrepreneurial career and after ten years of commercial activity in the pharmaceutical sector within the then European Community, he set up an organization to bring the modern drug distribution technique to Poland. In 1994 he decided to invest in the Russian market by setting up an operating company as logistics service provider for European pharmaceutical companies.
WHEN AND HOW EVERYTHING BEGAN
Like all the stories even Phosphor has a beginning. The 1998 is the year that seals the principle of a strong bond between mr Valsangiacomo, that in this narrative plays the role of the asset manager, and mr Seegy, the Client. This relationship begins as a profitable business relationship an then transforms in a true friendship based on trust since the beginning. It is this value that laid the foundaments of the philosophy that led the foundation of Phosphor together with the results of the management. These aspects have contributed to the entrepreneur’s desire to collaborate with the asset manager in the creation of a company specialized in providing a service that would respond, in a flexible and clear manner, to the needs of many other savers and investors similar to him. The focus is on the client; the objective is to satisfy his needs by trying, in a transparent manner, to eliminate conflicts of interest or, where this is not possible, to resolve them in his favor.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: TRANSPARENCY AND TRUST
The company name emphasizes the philosophy that guides the work team. In Greek mythology, Phōsphòros is the personification of light. This metaphor is intended to indicate Phosphor’s vision: to be transparent and make the Client feel reassured by his work by bringing light to any doubts or needs and placing his interest first.
Phosphor’s mission is in fact to assist the Client in the choice of asset allocation and investment decisions, analyzing in detail his needs and proposing based on the latter an investment strategy tailor-made and fully understandable by him and therefore shared.
The Phosphor product differs from the others, as well as the philosophy from which it arises, for the team in charge of management which makes itself available in a clear way for the Client, allowing him to fully understand the investment strategy. The ultimate goal of Phosphor is to establish a relationship of solid trust with its customers as it happened between the two founders of the company.
