PRESS RELEASE

Osprey Capital Limited, the venture capital firm, has announced an investment in iNDEXX Markets.

iNDEXX Markets, founded in 2011, creates innovative managed indices for fund management groups and advisory firms.

Working with investment banks, the company launched a series of asset-allocated indices in December 2012, which have already attracted over $200m of investment from institutional investors.

Leon Diamond, Director, iNDEXX Markets, said: “iNDEXX Markets is a bespoke investment solution model that caters explicitly to the designs and ambitions of its client base. It is very pleasing to attract the interest of Osprey Capital, a firm which clearly appreciates the tremendous potential inherent within the proposition, delivered through a strategy of designing bespoke indices for a range of third party clients.”

Ronan Kearney, Chairman, Osprey Capital Limited, said: “This is an exciting time for Osprey Capital and we are very pleased to be investing in iNDEXX Markets, demonstrating our preference and expertise for retail financial services. The demand for iNDEXX Markets’ offering is incredibly strong and we look forward watching it grow in the future.”

Osprey Capital Ltd is a venture capital firm coming up to its fifth year anniversary. Osprey invests at seed and founder stages, and only invests in companies focused on UK retail financials.

Osprey recently announced the exit from investment following the sale of Allium Capital, with a return of 11.9 x capital for investors.

Other aspects that make the Osprey model unique in the UK are that it has been established as a limited company rather than an LLP, investing shareholder capital only. This ensures greater transparency with all profits attributed direct to shareholders based on their share ownership. As there are no third party funders, returns are measured solely on a cash to cash basis rather than a notional value of the underlying holdings.
