"After years of equity underperformance and volatility, investors and their advisors are increasingly turning to alternatives for flexibility and diversification," says Bob Worthington, President of Hatteras Funds. "We believe that all investors should have access to the same sophisticated approach and superior portfolio management talent as the largest institutions. Thomas' extensive experience in portfolio construction, research and analysis, due diligence and risk management will further add to the depth of talent on the Hatteras Alternative Mutual Funds team."
