Colorado hedge fund White Peaks Asset Management is preparing to roll out a separately-managed accounts platform by the end of the year.
The new Clear Edge Separately Account Platform is expected to launch in the fourth quarter, HFMWeek reports. The platform has been seeded with $75 million by a family office and an institutional investor, and should have between 12 and 18 managed accounts by January.
