History

INOKS Capital has been involved with emerging economies and commodity value chains from its first days of existence and has never deviated from that core focus since.

The company has consistently posted strong performance across its range of investment products for over a decade. By excelling through periods of unprecedented market stress, INOKS Capital has developed the know-how and the relationships that make it the leading asset manager of its class today.

Its adaptability, resilience and resourcefulness are valued by investors and investees alike: today the firm proudly trades for its collective investment funds past their 110th month milestone.
