When Ulric and I started Vauban, we aimed to create a more straightforward and more affordable way for emerging quants and traders to launch their first hedge fund. In the process, we realised how broken the whole alternative investment universe was, and the vast opportunity to use software to solve this. Our aims subsequently expanded enormously. We’re now on a mission to completely re-engineer the way people create and deploy private capital.
Vauban’s goal is to revamp alternative investment, one Wealth Container at a time, to enable the next wave of private capital creation to emerge.
A Wealth Container is what we, at Vauban, call an asset-holding legal entity. They always take the form of a corporation, a partnership or a trust and they are the building bricks of the modern economy. The building you are in and the IP you are using to view our website, as well as most things of substantial value, are held in Wealth Containers. Funds, SPVs, Syndicates, SPEs, Trusts and Holdings are all Wealth Containers; legal entities with special parameters that make them suitable for investing.
