Keystone Capital Partners appoints hedge fund veteran to lead new investment platform

Keystone Capital Partners has formed a new investment platform led by hedge fund veteran Fred Zaino, which will provide capital solutions for small and midsize public and private companies. 

During a successful 15-year career at multi-billion-dollar global investment management firm Millennium, Zaino successfully identified and invested in hundreds of companies through bottom-up, fundamental analysis with a focus on the Biotech/MedTech sector.

“Keystone aims to help overlooked and underfunded companies reach their goals by providing a stable and equitable source of capital through creative investment structures,” says Zaino, Chief Investment Officer at Keystone. “I’ve learned throughout my career that the best returns are often generated from the strongest partnerships, and Keystone will invest in building long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with strong management teams to help them meet and exceed their business objectives.”

Structured as a family office, Keystone has the ability to deploy capital to its portfolio companies in a flexible, unconstrained and timely manner. The firm is focused on building long-term capital partnerships with attractively valued micro-cap, small-cap, and mid-cap public and private companies. While generally sector-agnostic, industries of focus include biotech, real estate and consumer products.
