Who we are

Astra is an emerging European investment business focusing on outsized risk-reward opportunities for our investors. We manage capital on behalf of pension funds, institutions and high-net-worth individuals with the mission to constantly deliver best-in-class returns whilst maintaining careful consideration around each investment.
