Two Decades Providing Exposure to Institutional Alternatives

With 25 years of alternative investment experience, we utilize our experience and deep network to provide exposure to third-party institutional private equity and hedge funds for your clients' portfolios.

We seek to identify those with a proven track record, a dedicated risk management process, deep teams and institutional safeguards. The managers on our platform collectively manage over $1 trillion in industry assets.

Our manager selection process is conflict-free, as we are not compensated by any of the managers in the program.
