Related Topics

Agecroft Partners has acquired the business of Alta Via Advisors, a New York based hedge fund third party marketing boutique. 

Alta Via Advisors’ client base will be migrated over to Agecroft Partners and Andrew Feldman, Alta Via’s founding principal will join Agecroft Partners’ team in a senior management role where he will be responsible for all European operations as well as parts of  North American client coverage. He will also be responsible for helping the firm with hedge fund due diligence, creating hedge fund industry research white papers and helping guide the overall vision of the firm.
Andy Feldman brings more than 30 years of experience in the financial industry where he developed a strong understanding of global capital markets, hedge fund strategies and institutional investors. Andy’s in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of investment strategies fits with Agecroft Partners core philosophy of providing value in multiple ways to investors. This includes sharing advice regarding hedge fund asset allocation, manager selection, hedge fund industry trends and being the liaison between investors and the select hedge funds that have made it through their due diligence process. In addition, “Andy has a reputation of 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 (pictured).
Feldman says: “Don Steinbrugge has shown real leadership in the ever-evolving world of hedge funds.  He and his colleagues have successfully built Agecroft’s global brand and they use those same skills to help bring their hedge fund clients to market.  Their disciplined adherence to market best practices in evaluating and choosing the hedge funds they represent, adds significant value to institutional investors’ hedge fund selection process. I am certainly looking forward to joining this team.”
Agecroft Partners believes there is consolidation within the third party marketing industry, where the top firms in the industry are raising a disproportionate amount of the industry assets. These top firms are typically able to attract higher quality hedge fund firms, because of their institutional infrastructure and industry reputation. As a result, Agecroft Partners will continue to look for additional strategic acquisitions in the future.
