Meet WEM

We approach our clients as family, therefore we would like to introduce you the people who are the keystones of our company and we hope we will also have the opportunity to meet you.

The story of Wealth Effect Management began in 2007, when Peter Štadler, as the owner, created the company Efect with Filip Jacek. During the first five years in the company, he focused mainly on his personal development, development of managerial skills and knowledge from the financial market. The deeper he got into the issue of finance in Slovakia, the stronger he realized the need for a company the philosophy of which would be based not on making huge profits to the detriment of its clients, but rather on fair approach and services and products at a level known from the Western markets. Thanks to this direction and his experience, the company began to attract the first high net-worth clients.

2014 After the early tragic departure of mentor Filip Jacek, there came time to set up a company that would provide the highest level of services and focus on wealth management and sophisticated solutions to simplify the financial life of its clients.
2015 Of course, the plan to bring wealth management to underdeveloped markets did not apply to Slovakia only and therefore in its early days Wealth Effect Management decided to expand to the Bulgarian market.
2016 The basis of providing high-level services is the strong bond of each of the employees with the company’s policy. The goals and principles of Wealth Effect Management were transformed into the DNA of the company, which has since then been the main pillar for selection and subsequent functioning of each employee. Hand in hand with a strong character, the company emphasizes expertise, transparency and work based on facts. In order to raise the latter part to the international level too, cooperation with Bloomberg began.
2017 The company’s effort to provide a level of services that had not been reached in this region culminated in the opening of its own investment company, thus ensuring its control over the fee structures and performance of its investment products. As a result, it has been able to provide asset management tailored to any situation. Complementing the provision of services by estate planning created new opportunities to make it easier for clients to manage their assets.
2018 Long-term presence on the Slovak market also means a number of long-term clients. Since taking care of their needs throughout their lives has always been the company’s priority, but at the same time a very demanding task, Wealth Effect Management approached the issue by creating a Service Center, which has since been responsible for clients’ satisfaction over the coming years. This was the first year for a unique product Save for Tomorrow created to meet the needs of long-term investment security for clients who want to take a responsible approach to their financial future and who understand the necessity of not relying on the state assistance.
2019 This year was driven by positive market developments and, above all, by acquisitions. The company has also switched to a joint stock company to respond more flexibly to the needs of its clients and business partners. In addition, the focus on sustainable business has increased, resulting in the establishment of the long-term project called Finančná zrada. It aims to improve financial literacy in Slovakia. Its greatest added value is the ability to ask experts about specific financial problems.
