ABOUT FINLES
Finles Capital is an investment boutique with a long track record in advising investment funds and investment managers globally. The firm was founded more than 40 years ago by Dolf van der Weij in 1977 as a preferred supplier to the white-collar union the NCHP - nowadays De Unie - together with Achmea Insurance and AXA Insurance company.
Finles started as an intermediary firm for financial services, specializing in life insurances, mortgages and banking brokerage. In the mid-eighties, Finles was one of the first Fund Managers introducing and setting-up funds in the Netherlands.
Today Finles Capital is predominantly working in the fields of alternative investment funds advisory and consultancy. The boutique is involved in fund projects around the globe. In the UK, Liechtenstein, Hong Kong and Luxembourg Finles is helping companies with setting up funds and growing their business.

OUR SERVICES
For more than 40 years, we have been researching alternative funds and investment strategies to deliver custom-made solutions tailored specifically to our clients objectives.
Alternative investing is a powerful tool for diversification, volatility hedging and return enhancement. However, this kind of investing calls for a higher degree of expertise — an entirely new skill-set, compared to that of traditional investing — as well as a substantial amount of due diligence.
Our approach to alternative investing brings the sector’s top talents with their cutting edge strategies and the team’s impressive track record. All aimed at achieving the client’s goals and delivering uncorrelated returns.
