Don Steinbrugge, Founder and CEO said, “Doug’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 Agecroft’s due diligence process.”
Further hires and acquisition planned
Founded in 2007, Agecroft Partners is a licensed broker-dealer, registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is a member of The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), member SIPC and a member of The National Futures Association (NFA).
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 hires or acquisitions in the future.
