Finles Capital is an investment boutique with a long track record specializing in alternative investment funds and servicing investment managers globally. The firm was founded in 1977 by Dolf van der Weij in the Netherlands 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 insurance, mortgage and banking brokerage. In the mid-eighties, Finles was one of the first Fund Managers introducing and setting-up funds in the Netherlands, servicing more than 35’000 clients.

In addition, Finles managed Finles/IEX Hollandse Hedge Fund Index.
