Topturn Capital, a boutique investment management firm, is teaming up with professional surfer Joe Curren in a bid to take advantage of the SEC's ratification of the JOBS Act and new marketing opportunities it presents.
"The SECs recent ratification of the Jobs Act has dramatically changed everything," says Dan Darchuck, Top Turn Capital's co-founder and managing director. "When our industry leverages the ability to outwardly market alternative investments, things are going to get very competitive very quickly. We just happen to be leading the industry."
In the surfing lexicon, a top turn refers to a surfer's ability to reposition himself back into the momentum of moving water. Topturn Capital believes its approach to asset management parallels this analogy.
"We feel that how we represent our company will change the industry norm," says Greg Stewart, co-founder and chief investment officer of Top Turn Capital. "People look at numbers all day everyday. We just brought in The Trojan Horse for our investment strategy by introducing a surfer into the equation."
