What we stand for


Think Different

Not all investors are alike and we will empower them to express their individuality.


Think Together

We encourage open and free sharing of opinions, so that everyone feels as though they can collaborate and contribute.


Never Stop Innovating

We have an insatiable desire to understand the inner workings of things, fostering an environment of continual thinking and problem solving.


Say It Like It Is

We call a spade a spade, not a gardening tool. We will always engage with our investors in a language they understand – never diluted and never in the small print.

We're running a marathon, not a sprint.

Index investing

We reckon a prosperous future requires clever investment decisions.  That’s why we take a long term, data-driven approach to investing, that’s backed by decades of research.


We tell our investors exactly what they’re paying in fees, where their money’s being invested and when.


Fees reduce investment returns, that’s why we strive to deliver more for less by using technology to lower fees.


Diversifying your investments is important and helps minimize risk while maximizing rewards.
