Deus X Capital’s strategic investment in APEX:E3: Driving innovation in the AI-enabled crypto space

At Deus X Capital, we are committed to building and investing in businesses that we believe can change the future of financial services. Our goal is to contribute to a technology-enabled financial system that will be fairer, more transparent, and deliver true value to all stakeholders. Part of the journey towards this is focused on investing in and harnessing the power of AI as a force for good.


Our recent strategic investment in APEX:E3, a leading multi-asset Big Data Analytics Integrated AI platform, underscores this commitment and aligns with our mission to democratise financial services through cutting-edge technology. This move reflects our dedication to innovation and positions us as investors alongside some of the industry’s most prominent players, including ConsenSys, the leading blockchain and web3 software company.


The announcement marks a significant milestone in integrating advanced AI solutions into our portfolio. APEX:E3’s platform, designed for global portfolio managers, traders, quants, and researchers, leverages big data analytics, machine learning, and large language models to create efficiencies across capital markets. The technology has already been integrated by and used by our portfolio companies, and it comes at a tipping point on both companies’ growth journeys.


Tim Grant, CEO of Deus X Capital, emphasised the importance of this partnership; “Having worked with APEX and its CEO Usman Khan for several years, this investment is the next step in bringing innovative technologies into the Deus X Capital Group. Its principle of merging humanity with technology is aligned with our mission and is something we believe is critical to building and supporting an accessible ecosystem for all. Building a network of companies that collectively works towards this goal can’t be without the technology and innovation we see at APEX.”


Our strategic investment in APEX:E3 is validated by its ongoing partnerships with industry giants like Google, Cognism, and ConsenSys as well as a number of global institutional asset managers and investment banks.


“Building on our successful partnerships with Google, ConsenSys, Cognism, and the University of Oxford, this strategic investment from Deus X Capital equips us with the tools and resources to further expand APEX, benefiting our customers and partners. We are confident that our solutions will help shape the next generation of investment capabilities and enable more effective outcomes for all. Our roadmap is dedicated to developing scalable cognitive architectures to power AI agents, enhancing efficiency and value discovery in capital markets,” said Usman Khan, CEO of APEX:E3.


APEX:E3’s collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Computer Science department has led to the development of advanced solutions, such as an offline miniature device powered by a fine-tuned open-source vision model. This device can identify artefacts ranging from texts to complex industrial machine parts in remote locations, showcasing the innovative applications of AI in diverse fields.


Professor Mike Wooldridge, Head of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford, remarked, “As a leading University, engaging with industry on real-world applications of Computer Science provides not only an excellent opportunity for our students but also potential new avenues for collaborative research. APEX:E3 has devised unique challenges to apply students’ knowledge to real-world applications, leveraging the understanding and application of AI in financial institutions. We are pleased to have APEX:E3 as an industry affiliate.”


APEX:E3’s AI agent, A.L.I.C.E., leverages big data analytics and generative AI models from Google Cloud, OpenAI, Meta, Anthropic, and APEX’s proprietary cognitive architecture to deliver swift and precise financial research.


Sam Combe, Google Cloud FinTech lead, said: “So excited to see the work Usman Khan and APEXE3 has been doing with Google Gemini go public. APEX:E3’s resulting products free portfolio managers, quants, and analysts from much of the toil in their work so they can focus on what matters most — interpretation of results, optionality, and decision making.”
