Value Square is an independent boutique asset management firm with its ambitions squarely focused on the time-proven benefits of value investing. We are proud to be independent investors with offices in the vibrant, historic city of Ghent, a town with a long history of thinking for itself and seizing opportunity when it presents itself. We are a strongly committed team with aligned interest with our clients.

We are Value investors focusing primarily on family businesses. We seek out the best investment ideas and do not care much for a reference index.

Discretionary management

Entrusting us with your assets gives you the comfort of knowing that your portfolio is being managed by our asset managers so you do not have to pay close attention to it yourself. It goes without saying that your portfolio is managed with respect for your risk profile as set out in the management agreement.

Advisory management
