Introductions for emerging and established institutional money managers.

provides introductions for emerging and established institutional money managers.

We are a broker-dealer that makes connections between qualified investors and select managers. We currently have a number of managers under contract but are responsive to investor needs when introducing a manager. Our current managers range in strategy from Long/short equity, Systematic macro and micro traders, CTAs, High Yield, etc.; and ranging in size, from new managers with little or no AUM to multi-billion dollar AUM managers. The managers' underlying characteristic is they all possess a carefully articulated and demonstrable edge.
