Rothschild Asset Management and Larch Lane Advisors have launched Rothschild Larch Lane Management Company.
The joint venture company will act as the investment advisor for a multi-manager liquid alternatives 40 Act fund that will use a risk balanced approach to portfolio construction.
Rothschild and Larch Lane will share their experience managing multi-manager alternatives portfolios.
Rothschild brings complementary global research of liquid hedge fund managers and distribution. Larch Lane is a pioneer in early stage hedge fund investing, hedge fund seeding, and is a well-known fund of hedge funds investor in the US.
"This is a great milestone for Rothschild and an important step in developing our alternatives investment business in the US," says Michael Tamasco, co-head of Rothschild Asset Management. "We're thrilled to partner with Larch Lane on this initiative, given their reputation and years of innovation in alternatives solutions."
Mark Jurish, Larch Lane founder and CEO, says: "It's an exciting opportunity to work with Rothschild. The combined experience of Rothschild and Larch Lane creates a partnership that is uniquely positioned to offer investors a liquid alternatives strategy designed to provide diversification of asset classes and investment styles. We believe this will be a compelling solution among the current liquid alternatives 40 Act offerings."
A preliminary prospectus for a 40 Act mutual fund has been filed.
