Algebris (UK) Limited[1] is a London-based asset management company which has historically specialised in the global financial sector.[2] In December 2010 it managed $1.4 billion in funds.[3] In November 2017 Algebris manages over $12bn in assets.[4]

Algebris was founded by Davide Serra (from Genoa), a former analyst with Morgan Stanley.[2] Davide Serra owns outright the firm. It has offices in London, Singapore, Boston, Milan, Luxembourg and Tokyo.[5]

The first fund, Algebris Global Financials Fund, was launched in October 2006.

Algebris has posted a 9 per cent compound annual return net of fees since 2006 on the $600m it has invested on the equity side. On the financial credit side, which in November 2017[6] counts for $7.4bn of the firm’s assets under management, including bad loans at face value, the firm has earned 15 per cent annual net returns since it switched its emphasis to financial credit after the 2008 crisis. Alongside subordinated debt and financial equity, the fund has extended into non-performing loans in 2014[7], a global macro strategy in 2016[8] investing also outside of financials. In 2017[9] Algebris launched a fund focused on credit and equity securities of mostly midsized Italian companies.[10]
