About Us

Our Story

Oxane Partners was founded in 2013 by former credit traders from Deutsche Bank with close to 30 years of investment experience between them. Our approach originates from the first-hand challenges the founders faced during their investment careers and the realization that neither advisory nor pure-play technology firms can appropriately address the challenges faced by alternative investors. We firmly believe that only an apt combination of technology enabled by domain experts can provide a comprehensive offering to overcome the challenges faced by alternative managers across the investment lifecycle. This is why, at Oxane, our solutions are steeped in a consultative approach closely aligned with clients’ existing processes and systems.
