Ataraxia LLC is a minority-owned, private equity investment manager and investment consultant, designing, constructing and managing portfolios according to a new paradigm that maximizes environmental and social impact with outperformance. A practical solution for the long-term benefit of people – planet – profit

Ataraxia LLC is a New York-registered investment advisor specialized in systemic change, environmentally regenerative and socially just investment management solutions for institutional investors. Registration does not imply competence.

Past performance is specific to each client and dependent on the criteria that are taken into consideration when defining an investment strategy together with other factors, some of which are not exclusively dependent on quantitative performance. Clients and their strategies are kept confidential and historical success is unavailable and unreliable in this unprecedented era of change.

The company was founded in April 2017 to provide institutional investors with alternative, innovative investment management strategies for the transition from an extractive investment paradigm toward social and environmental justice.

Investments engage risks and their value can decrease as well as increase. Past performance is not a reliable predictive indicator of future results, especially in innovative investment programs. Ataraxia makes no claims as to the profitable performance of any services, either directly or indirectly via links to third parties available through this website.


Jonathan Jenny

With almost 30 years of experience in the investment and private banking industry, Jonathan is in a unique position to structure meaningful and effective portfolios designed for impact in systemic change, environmental regeneration, and social justice. Jonathan has held numerous senior positions in institutional and private client wealth management, mostly in Europe, as Chief Investment Officer at HSBC, Global Wealth Advisor at BNP Paribas, Deputy Head of Advisory at UBS, and Head of Structured Products at Chase Manhattan (just prior to its merger with JP Morgan).

Before founding Ataraxia in New York, Jonathan created a Geneva-based, Swiss management consulting firm specializing in restructuring and strategy design for companies in the financial, industrial, aeronautical, luxury goods, and information technology sectors. Much of the inspiration for the evolution of ESG investing has been developed through experience in working with some of the leading institutional investors in Europe, where legislation and regulators have taken an increasingly influential role in setting standards for companies to disclose more non-financial material data to enable investors to assess the impacts of their business activity, strengthen overall risk management and encourage environmental and social justice.

Born in New York City with formative childhood experiences in Kenya, England, France, and Switzerland, Jonathan holds a B.A. from Haverford College in Sociology & Anthropology. A dual U.S./Swiss citizen, he is a retired Captain of the Swiss Army. He was formerly a Registered Representative with the FCA (UK), a former investment bank license holder with FINMA (Switzerland), and is most recently an Investment Adviser Representative in the  state of New York.
