Agecroft Partners, a hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm, has hired hedge fund marketing veteran Jim Sauls as managing director and head of European marketing.
Sauls brings over 20 years of institutional experience marketing hedge funds and derivative products on a global basis.
Before Agecroft Partners Sauls spent 10 years with Calatrava Securities, where he was director of marketing and chief executive of its affiliated commodity pool operator. In these rolls he raised capital from both European and US investors for multiple hedge fund managers and became acquainted with all aspects of hedge fund operations, risk management, administration, compliance and reporting.
Prior to Calatrava, Sauls held senior marketing and sales roles at both Fimat USA and Sanwa Futures, where he developed a strong understanding of global capital markets and international investors.
Sauls’ responsibilities will include heading Agecroft’s marketing efforts in Europe and assisting with due diligence on potential managers the firm may represent.
“Jim is a wonderful addition to our firm. It is imperative that the members of our firm are highly technically competent. In addition, Jim has a reputation of having high integrity and strong ethical standards which are vital characteristics to build the long term reputation of our firm,” says Agecroft Partners’ managing partner Don Steinbrugge.
