After 35 years running her own award-winning hedge fund and a family office, our founder, Vanessa Gibson, realised the younger generation were investing in assets which went far beyond traditional stocks and bonds.
Vanessa believed that fractionalization would open up many more possibilities to invest, be it crypto, NFTs, property, cars, collectibles or other private assets. However, as an investment manager, she knew this would also bring up challenges when it came to portfolio tracking, portfolio analytics and understanding what those analytics meant.
So, in 2019, with the help of Sarang Karkhanis (ex-Wharton fund manager), Larry Lorden (ex-Carphone Warehouse CTO) and Kenneth Sue (ex-Coutts MD), illio was founded.
The result is a platform which aggregates listed and unlisted assets from multiple accounts which can be tracked in one convenient place. Furthermore, by leveraging Vanessa’s proven investment process, we built an Insights engine which pulls out the key facts in bitesize chunks so that any investor, regardless of financial experience, can make more informed decisions.
Today, the illio team comprises of finance experts & engineers working together on creating an intuitive and powerful platform that gives you so much more than a wealth tracker.
Our mission is to help the modern investor think like a wealth manager without the hefty price tag, and we are excited to have you with us on this journey.
Everything we do at illio is driven by our two core values:
illio was born to give investors premier analytics at a fair price and help them manage their wealth to the best of their ability. With that in mind, our customers’ satisfaction is core to what makes us tick.
We believe in being open to getting feedback, ideas and suggestions from anyone. We encourage all employees to take part in the full illio journey and share their perspectives.
