Fenix Partners was formed in the winter of 2009 as an investment company to take advantage of the extraordinary and daunting opportunities emerging from the economic and market crisis of that period. The name was inspired by the timing of the company's founding; "Fenix" is an ancient spelling of the mythical bird which rose from ashes. The simplified spelling evokes the simple nature of the investment concepts that form the basis of Fenix's portfolios.
Fenix works to identify opportunities in both market and non-market based investments. Many of our investments have an asset-backed bond or asset-backed lending component, which is based on the founders' skill-sets. In addition, we tend to focus our investments on less liquid and obscure corners of the capital markets. This opportunistic style led in several directions as can be seen in the diverse mix above.
