Finex LLP is an investment management company founded in 2010. The company is headquartered in London and specialises in liquid Alternative Investment strategies in equity and derivatives markets.
Through managed accounts and commingled vehicles, Finex offers access to absolute return liquid strategies that have been developed over the past 15 years by our Investment Managers.

What’s true for the group is also true for the individual…
Overspecialise, and you breed in weakness.
We do not believe in a single super model or strategy able to adapt and perform in all market conditions. Our Portfolio Managers remain reasonably isolated from each other. This naturally creates intellectually distinct methodologies and it is this distinction that gives our strategies strength.
Systematic strategies are heavily reliant on technology. We build and deploy all our own systems to protect our Intellectual Property. This allows us to grow rapidly without impacting current portfolios or business lines.
We place high emphasis in R&D of new models, however we also know the cap at which our strategies remain nimble and agile enough to deliver uncorrelated returns.
We are socially responsible investors that apply a stringent exclusionary list to ensure our portfolios are ethically sound. Furthermore we do not trade agricultural contracts thus ensuring true compliance with the spirit of UCITS.
