Our company

Napoleon Group is the brainchild of our three co-founders, who came together to bring a new financial solution to investors after creating their own start-ups dedicated to corporate clients and professional investors.

Within the Group, there are several arms of the business. Napoleon Capital is a regulated financial adviser, designing best-in-class quantitative strategies on listed assets. We use our own research on quant investment solutions and we also partially outsource through our ongoing competition scheme, whereby aspiring strategy providers can submit their idea and be selected by our investors. The use of blockchain technology allows the secure and transparent orchestration of this competition. The proposed solutions are currently aimed at a professional clients who seek to reconcile performance research from Napoleon Capital and operational security provided by a Tier 1 asset manager.

The firm, financed through an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), offers fund and mandate solutions with the objective of investing in crypto assets (ETH or BTC) via derivatives.
