FINEMATIC started as a Czech project from Prague whose founders met in 2000 at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University. Based on the first experience with exchange trading, in 2007, they decided to create an automated trading software to reduce the impact of human emotions on the trade selection and realization process.

The founders of FINEMATIC started to manage assets of the first clients in 2014. They were providing their services as individuals in a regime not falling under the supervision of the Czech National Bank. Their next goal was to obtain a license for running an alternative investment fund. They have received the license for FINEMATIC SICAV, a.s. corporation in 2021.

FINEMATIC uses a unique combination of theoretical knowledge and practical experience, which creates its competitive edge. Since inception FINEMATIC has been transparent, adhering to strict ethical principles, and emphasizing personal contact with the client.

PARTNERS

Jan Sindelar, Ph.D. graduated in physics and mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague. During his studies he focused on application of mathematics to trading. At the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the Czech Academy of Sciences he reasearched Bayesian statistics and control theory. He worked for the Estlander & Partners hedge fund in Finland, South African investment bank ABSA and investment branch of Algorythma group in Abu Dhabi. Together with programming of the FINEMATIC software platform, he is in charge of evolution of trading strategies and their optimization. He also meets with clients.

Martin Mixa, M.S. studied physics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague. While working at the Department of Condensed Matter Physics, he employed himself in computer modeling of self-organized growth of quantum dots and other microscopic processes applied in nanotechnologies. He is in charge of the design and programming of the FINEMATIC software platform, to which he still dedicates most of his time. He is also responsible for testing of evolved trading strategies.
