When CEO and Founder Elle Kaplan was in college, her father suddenly fell into a coma. Elle witnessed her mother’s struggle to manage her family’s investments on her own.
Elle moved to NYC with $200, no job, and a mission to reimagine Wall Street with a firm that operated at a fiduciary level. A decade later, after working at Wall Street’s premier firms, her desire to revolutionize finance led to the creation of LexION Capital, one of the only women-owned and women-run wealth management firms in the nation. She then expanded upon its success to found LexION Alpha.
Every day Elle strives to share “financial advice good enough for your mother” with an honest and ethical approach.
LexION Capital is a fiduciary firm that manages money for individuals, families and institutions. We provide bespoke investment advice portfolios tailored to your unique investing needs and goals.
LexION Alpha is a data-driven hedge fund with human overlay. We take long positions in equities that are expected to appreciate and short positions in ones that are expected to decline to attempt to capture alpha.
