Year in Review: AENAON achievements in 2020
Happy New Year!
Please allow me to start this end-of-year letter by offering each and every one of you my warmest wishes for health, love, and prosperity to your families and loved ones.
The past year is just a few days behind us now but nevertheless, it has been nothing short of challenging for all of us. The global pandemic that started spreading around the world approximately a year ago caught us all by surprise and turned our daily lives into something that would resemble a Hollywood movie. Suddenly we all got accustomed to terms like “coronavirus”, “quarantine” and “social distancing” while working from home and wearing a protective mask became the new norms, taking their tolls on our physical and mental health.
Despite all that, the world didn’t come to an end and we survived. Unfortunately, many lives have been lost but my hope is that humanity will come out of this disaster stronger and more united. And this needs to be celebrated so with that in mind, I would like to look back at 2020 and remember our proudest moments as a company:
New team member
AENAON announced the appointment of Apostolos Manthos as its Head of Analysis & Strategic Investments, bringing along 30+ years of expertise in valuing and managing equities, indices, commodities, and exchange rates.
AENAON received the BarclayHedge award for Highest Net Return in the Currency Traders Managing Less than $10m category during 2019.
Chief Investment Officer
AENAON announced the appointment of Konstantinos Anthis as its Chief Investment Officer, joining from the UAE brokerage company ADS Securities. Konstantinos is an economist and a seasoned expert in the Forex, equities, and commodities markets.
AENAON launched new websites: aenaonmarkets.com and aenaonam.com.
AENAON Markets has been recognized as “Alternative Investment Manager of the Year” in Europe and “Asset Management Firm of the Year” in Greece for 2020 at the prestigious AI Worldwide Finance Awards.
On October 28-29, AENAON was invited to present its flagship Syncro Currencies program to the virtual attendees of the FX Hedge Fund Expo 2020, organized by the Advanced Markets Group, receiving recognition for Best Presentation of the Day.
Key strategic allocation
AENAON Asset Management accepted a key strategic allocation to the Syncro Currencies program made by institutional money manager Paravene Capital, a UK-based FCA regulated investment advisor.
Assets Under Management
AENAON managed to break the “10 million AUMs” barrier, aiming at doubling AUMs within Q1 2021.
AENAON engaged AIFCAP Limited, a Cyprus-based Alternative Investment Fund Manager for the inception of AENAON’s Registered Alternative Investment Fund to be launched in Q1 2021.
In conclusion, even though this past year had more than its fair share of difficulties we’re proud of the milestones we reached together with our investors. As such, as I am closing this letter, I would like to sincerely thank you for your continued trust in AENAON and reaffirm our commitment to offering our investors the highest quality of investment products and services.
All the best for the new year!
With the kindest regards and warmest wishes,
Chief Investment Officer
