Alternative investments provider Altegris has made a number of additions to its sales and legal teams to support its expansion.
Since Altegris launched one of the first actively managed, managed futures mutual funds in 2010, the firm has experienced significant growth both in assets and in adoption by financial intermediaries.
Natalie Maniaci has joined Altegris as the firm's senior counsel and advisory chief compliance officer. Les Carrington comes to Altegris as the new internal sales desk manager after holding that same position for the last five of her 13 years with LPL.
"The human capital within Altegris has always been one of our strengths and a key contributor to our success," says Jon Sundt, president and chief executive of Altegris. "The addition of such experienced professionals as Natalie Maniaci and Les Carrington to our team will further enhance our ability to grow and is consistent with our overall mission to provide best of breed alternatives to our investors."
Previously Maniaci held the position of senior vice president and associate general counsel with Trust Company of the West, where she was responsible for advising business units on legal and regulatory matters affecting mutual funds, hedge funds, offshore funds, and separate accounts.
Carrington's prior responsibilities were to partner with sales leaders to develop sales strategy, provide training and guidance to LPL's internal consultants, and oversee sales campaigns to ensure their success.
