Agecroft Partners, a global hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm, has hired hedge fund veteran Cara Fleckenstein as a Managing Director.
Cara brings considerable institutional hedge fund experience to Agecroft Partners. Her experience includes marketing at a multi-billion dollar hedge fund, capital introduction at Bank of America, institutional options sales at Citibank, and options market-making at Societe Generale.
During this time she has developed a very strong knowledge of hedge fund investment strategies and the capital markets, which should give her significant credibility with large institutional investors. Cara’s responsibilities will include assisting with due diligence on potential hedge funds the firm may represent, and introducing the firm’s hedge fund clients to large institutional investors located within the Western/Southern United States, Latin America, Middle East, and Asia. Her focus on Latin America, Middle East and Asia will augment Agecroft’s global coverage and allow its hedge fund clients to utilise the firm’s full distribution capabilities, or a more tailored approach to a specific region of the world.
“Cara is a wonderful addition to our firm. Our business model is to introduce top quality hedge funds in a consultative manner to large institutional investors,” says Agecroft Partners’ Managing Partner Don Steinbrugge (pictured). “It is imperative that the members of our firm are highly technically competent. In addition, Cara has a reputation of having high integrity and strong ethical standards which are vital characteristics to build the long term reputation of our firm.”
