The Opportunity

  • Secular trends support significant hedge fund industry growth.
  • Research suggests that smaller and younger hedge firms generate the highest returns.
  • Talent looking for seed/acceleration capital is better than it has been in a very long time.
  • Strategic investors are in a strong position to negotiate beneficial terms such as equity, revenue share, transparency, and enhanced liquidity.

Our business is distinguished by an entrepreneurial culture, deep expertise in hedge funds and private equity, and a spirit of partnership.
