About The Fund

The FNEX Ventures Fund (XFNEX) is an actively managed fund that targets a diversified portfolio of late stage venture backed companies that are comprised of those on the FNEX “Target List.” This list is made up of trending venture backed companies, evidencing growth, capital appreciation and brand recognition. This list is constantly changing and evolving. FNEX Advisor, the advisor to XFNEX, will identify leading venture capital firms and follow investing trends into these companies. FNEX Advisor will actively manage the positions taking into consideration competition, performance, vertical dynamics, and market conditions. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in the equity securities (e.g., common and/or preferred stock, or convertible debt securities) of certain privately operating, venture-backed, speculative, growth companies, selected by the Advisor.

The FNEX Target List is maintained by the Advisor to the FNEX Venture Fund (XFNEX), FNEX Advisor. This list represents the late-stage, venture backed private companies being tracked by the Advisor for potential investment for the fund. These companies have typically demonstrated viability as a growing concern and generally have a well-known product with a strong market presence. Late-stage private compainies have generally reached a point of cash flow generation and are beginning to experiment with expanding into tangential markets. This list changes continually. To be clear, the Fund will not hold all of these positions; nor is there any assurance that these companies will become part of the portfolio of the Fund. These are the current companies being tracked and evaluated for potential investment by the Fund.

  • Targeted portfolio companies may have limited financial resources and may be unable to meet their obligations and Fund’s holdings could be substantially diluted if the Fund does not or cannot participate, bankruptcy or liquidation and the reduction or loss of the Fund’s investment.
