Limina Financial Systems

Savvy Buy Side F2B SaaS

After years of consolidation within and between asset servicing and front to back office (F2B) technology, a new entrant might seem startling. But Limina co-founder and CEO, Kristoffer Fürst, is confident that their newly designed offering not only allows fund managers to reduce costs, but is also more functional in two main ways: userfriendliness and automation.

(L-R): Andreas Fürst, CTO; Joakim Saltin, COO; Kristoffer Fürst, CEO; Sebastian Walleby, Chief System Architect; Anders Oscarsson, Head of Sales.

The passion for automating and improving processes that led to Limina was apparent in Fürst’s first job, trading derivatives for Handelsbanken, where he was shocked that so little automation existed for some trading processes. After broad risk, IT and quantitative experience across various investment strategies at Sweden’s largest hedge fund manager, Brummer & Partners (which belongs to The Hedge Fund Journal’s “Europe 50” ranking), project Limina, named after a village in Sicily, began to crystallize in Africa. Fürst met minds with Limina’s business development head, Jamie McLennon, in vanilla-scented Madagascar, where he was scuba-diving as a marine science officer for an NGO, having worked at Google and Goldman Sachs after studying artificial intelligence. “We found that we both came from a similar educational background in finance and programming,” recalls McLennon who continues “it was immediately clear that this was out of the ordinary; from the first day Kristoffer would sit on the beach coding instead of watching the sunset.”
