Since 1936, Ersel has specialised in asset management and is a unique business in Italy, in terms of its complete independence and service quality, as well as its direct and personal relationship with the client, without sales networks.
Founded in Turin as Studio Giubergia, the first mutual fund company authorised in Italy, Ersel has always supplemented its core business with investment advisory, trust and corporate advisory services.
Still guided by the founder's family, now with its fourth generation at the company, Ersel is today a model of continuity and innovation: a secure choice that is able to offer all clients, whether private, institutional or corporate, the certainty of being able to rely on a professional, authoritative and transparent service.
Reference point for families that hold large assets
Since it commenced business, Studio Giubergia has been a reference point for large Turin families, thanks to its ability to interpret the service beyond the mere execution of orders, through strategies whose core objective is the protection and preservation of assets. Today, in a radically different scenario and with an intricate group structure, Ersel stays true to this vision and remains a safe haven in Italy for families that own large assets.
A well-structured group
The Group has grown over the years to assume its current set-up, with the holding Ersel Investimenti at the helm, which controls Ersel Sim, dedicated to wealth management, which in turn heads up other operating companies. Alongside companies dedicated to the management of Italian and Luxembourg mutual investment funds and Online Sim, a web platform that is now a market leader in Italy in the placement of funds on-line, the Group also includes the trust hub, for the administration of well-structured and complex capital assets, established by Simon Fiduciaria and Nomen Fiduciaria, a company with long-standing ties with Fiat, acquired in 2015. In 2018, the pre-existing trust company of the Ersel Group, Fidersel, was incorporated by Nomen.
A branch was opened in London in 2011, which has also carried out client advisory and management activities since 2016.
In 2018, with the entry of historic Milan bank Albertini, which shares Ersel’s values of ethical professionalism and transparency, Ersel Group enriches its offering and revamps its image.
Commitment in the field of culture, art and philanthropy
The strong links with the city of origin and awareness of the social responsibility of a company present in Turin for more than 80 years are the guiding principles of Ersel’s activities in the field of art and culture.
The Paideia Foundation is created in 1993, with various areas of activity, but a sole objective: improving the lives of the whole family unit affected by a disability. The Paideia Centre opened in 2018, a cutting edge multi-purpose facility for the rehabilitation of children, a space in which specialist services are integrated with leisure and relaxation within a non-medicalised, eco-sustainable and fully accessible facility, also in terms of costs, thanks to controlled tariffs.
At the end of the 1980s, Ersel was among the promoters of Consulta for the development of Turin’s artistic and cultural heritage, created on the back of an initiative of a group of entrepreneurs who had the past and future of the city at heart; a form of modern patronage geared towards giving the new generations a more beautiful and better looked-after Turin.
In order to honour the memory of Engineer Renzo Giubergia, after his passing, the Foundation named after him was established, with the goal of combining the love of music and Turin. In fact, it promotes concerts in particular parts of the city, which are worth being developed, and competitions for young talents.
