Who we are
Hi there! My name is Liya Xu. I’m the founder and CEO.
I went to James Ruse Agricultural High School and then to the University of Sydney to get my Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws degrees. I am admitted to practice law in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and I am a CFA charterholder. My professional background is in strategy, banking and investment management.
Everything at Alpaca Capital is grounded in financial, economic, and strategy theory, and tested in real life.
I currently live in California.
We know your money isn’t like any other product or service so we hold ourselves to a higher standard.
If we wouldn’t recommend it to our mums, dads, friends or use it ourselves, we won’t recommend it to you.
Simple doesn’t mean simplistic, you can have a credit card, you don’t need a budget, you can invest in things which are not diversified index funds…(the list goes on).
Simple means reducing the information overload so you can act with greater confidence.

Disclaimer: We provide useful information, not financial advice 😎
We’ve invested in Australian and US financial markets, real estate, cryptocurrency, and traded options. We’ve also used a variety of budgeting tools, credit cards, superannuation / retirement accounts, comparison websites, and genuinely like talking about finance 😅.
