Our history

The HQ Trust name derives from Harald Quandt, whose family name is best known for its ownership of BMW. The Harald Quandt family became an early pioneer in family office wealth management and alternative investing in Germany after its single family office was founded in 1982 by Harald Quandt’s daughters. Based on its early successes, the family founded several financial services companies between 1988 and 1992. These firms became the predecessor organisations of what today is called HQ Trust (a multi-client family office) and HQ Capital (alternative investments).

Our people

Our core team has been working together for two decades. Our 80 employees have on average, 17 years experience.

Our fund

HQT Global Quality Dividend
HQ Trust created a fund with a strategy of dividend-stable shares for a key client in 2012. This solution performed so well that other customers showed an interest in the fund. For this reason, HQT Global Quality Dividend was launched in 2016.

The fund, which values ​​dividend stability combined with a favourable rating, has a top rating of 5 stars from rating agency Morningstar. Due to the strict selection criteria, only 22 out of a universe of around 7,000 shares are selected monthly for the fund.
