Alternative Investments

Our very first client in the hedge fund space was O’Connor & Associates in 1990, a Chicago based trading firm that employed a quant strategy.  The alts business was in its infancy and we immersed ourselves into it on a granular level to learn all aspects of the business. They were acquired long ago by UBS, but they served as the springboard for our Alternative Investments practice that was one of the first to cover and recruit in the private markets space. Since, we have completed hundreds of searches in the US and Europe. Our clients have spanned from the large financial institutions to emerging managers, and everything in between.

Over the last 30 years we have amassed a track record of completed assignments in every imaginable strategy in the private markets, including credit managers, hedge fund managers and private equity managers. Whether you are looking for senior leaders or specific functional expertise in portfolio management, capital raising, risk/compliance or any other area, we have the expertise to assist in identifying industry best talent that can have a material impact on your business.
