DFI is a service provider headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, which specializes in the development of safe-haven investment alternatives founded on tangible high-value commodities. We do so by balancing cutting-edge innovation and acumen with the tradition, strength and regulatory environment of an established Swiss institution. 

The Diamond Shield suite is DFI’s core investment offering and is centered on the inherent value contained in high-grade, natural diamonds. But unlike diamond investment programs that only allow you to buy a financial instrument referencing diamonds, Diamond Shield puts the actual asset in your hands. A DFI client does not buy into a fund, but obtains full ownership of physical diamonds. And the diamonds retain their status as a fully tradable asset, for our proprietary financial analysis and ability to access the loose diamond markets enables a client to monetize an investment at any given time.
