Abraxas is a boutique asset management company driven by like-minded people, expert in specialist strategies, managing a suite of funds and tailored managed accounts.


About


We are a London based boutique investment manager. The firm was founded in 2002 by Fabio Frontini with the idea of providing sophisticated investors worldwide with a unique trading strategy able to generate superior returns whilst maintaining a strong emphasis on capital preservation.

 

Since 2009 the firm has expanded its range of products, building a world class investment team with expertise in a wide range of financial products and is now able to provide tailor made investment solutions to the most discerning clients. The firm has always prioritised good performance over growth of assets under management and has established a strong reputation among peers and market counterparties. We believe in investing alongside our clients and as such, the principals in the firm are large investors in all the strategies we run.



Our Approach


Since we started in 2002, our investment approach has been based on providing competitive returns while managing and mitigating risk, in order to preserve capital. Our investment products have little correlation with the traditional asset classes, we do not benchmark ourselves against traditional indices. We are committed to deliver returns unconstrained by the industry obsession with models and indices. Hard work, discipline and an unbiased risk reward analysis are the key ingredients of all our investment decisions and endeavours.
