The purpose of outlining our investment process is to provide you with a clear and concise overview of our strategic approach and service offering.

Our process is to commence with the end outcome in mind. This involves ascertaining what you are striving to achieve from a high-level strategic perspective. Once this is established a clear and realistic roadmap can be constructed to achieve your desired outcome.


We place significant emphasis on data driven deep analytics, drawing on numerous resources – which includes Bloomberg, Bloomberg Intelligence, Morningstar, FactSet, McKinsey, and access to individual broker research both domestically and globally. 

The FIN-X style is reflected in the production of our own content which is available to you as a client.

Our investment committee is a mix of experience, pedigree and diversity.

We apply rigor and constantly question and hold each other accountable with one purpose in mind – to deliver the best investment outcomes to you.
