Comprehensive support
at the highest level

Magenhouse is a multi-family office based in Vienna. It started as the family office of Eduard Pomeranz, the founder of the bank-independent asset manager FTC Capital. Together with FTC Capital, Magenhouse also provides a wide range of services to other wealthy families and their companies including the strategic structuring of complex assets, portfolio management, advisory services including monitoring of financial service providers and comprehensive business consulting.

Beyond that, Magenhouse manages the Pomeranz Collection, a leading private collection of international contemporary art in Central Europe. We offer our expertise in this field to our clients – for example, when it comes to investing in art as an asset class or building up a collection.

Partnership, reliability and discretion

We see the relationship with our clients as a close partnership, dedicated to the success of their family. Trust, which is to be earned, is the central driving force of this partnership. In the process we always act in close consultation with the family's decision-makers. Agreements made with us are absolutely reliable, and information shared with the company will always be treated with the utmost care and discretion.
