Over two decades of experience in the financial services sector

The Timberland Finance companies have been established by Thomas Kraemer and Dirk Koester, being the senior professionals behind Timberland Capital Management GmbH, a German Bafin regulated entity which has more than 25 years of sustained success in the demanding financial investment sector. Timberland Capital Management GmbH has exhibited passion, knowledge and a good sense of trends, markets and people from the beginning. A curiosity for innovative improvements to traditional investment products, persistence and discipline in the implementation of ideas and an ability to identify and satisfy changing investor needs in all phases of the market – these are all timeless factors for success that continue to apply to the Timberland Group.

After Timberland Capital Management GmbH was established in 1993, it achieved an important milestone in 1998, when it was licensed as a financial services institution by BAFIN. Timberland Capital Management GmbH has operated as a traditional asset manager since that time – first focusing mainly on the management of individual portfolios. This success was followed by the launch by Timberland Capital Management GmbH of the first investment funds in 1999, for which it acts as asset manager. Based on this in-depth experience, in 2009 Timberland Capital Management GmbH then began to design closed-end products, that were built exclusively around solid top funds with a long record of success.

The Timberland companies are all owner managed. The actions of each individual company is focused on achieving the perfect balance between security and profitability, while striving towards operative efficiency. Continuity represents another key element of the Timberland Finance philosophy. These factors apply to products, services as well as personnel management.
