Managed futures firm Triton Capital Advisors has appointed Stephen Klawitter as senior vice-president.
In his new role, Klawitter—who joins from Altegris Investments—will partner with Jay Ramey and Richard Singer to service and meet the alternative investment needs of sophisticated investors and wealth advisors.
“To achieve their investment goals in today’s uncertain marketplace, investors are looking more and more at alternatives to enhance diversification and provide non-correlation to their traditional long-only portfolios,” said Singer, managing director and chief investment officer of La Jolla, Calif.-based Triton. “Stephen’s extensive background in the managed futures industry will reinforce our commitment of a high quality investor experience at Triton.”
Prior to joining Triton, Klawitter served as vice-president in the private client group at Altegris Investments. He spent almost eight years at Altegris, first as a managed futures analyst in the research department and then in the private client group.
Triton is an independent financial services group that provides access to managed futures investments. The firm works with individual qualified investors, institutions, wealth advisors and family offices to understand their goals, risk tolerance levels, and interest in alternative investments.
