Concordia Taps Industry Expert To Lead Business Development

Nov 11 2010 | 6:36pm ET

Hedge fund firm Concordia Advisors has appointed Cathleen Rittereiser as director of investor relations and business development. In her new role, Rittereiser will initiate and manage relationships with institutional investors and advise Concordia on communications strategy.   

Rittereiser is the co-author of two books, Top Hedge Fund Investors: Stories, Strategies, and Advice (Wiley, 2010) and Foundation and Endowment Investing (Wiley, 2008). She has over 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and relationship management roles with leading asset management and financial services firms, including Symphony Asset Management and Alternative Asset Managers. Rittereiser writes and speaks extensively on key industry issues and challenges facing investors and asset managers.

“We are excited to welcome Cathleen as the newest member of Concordia’s team. As the author of two books about institutional investors, Cathleen is a notable industry thought leader with extensive knowledge and understanding of hedge funds and hedge fund investors.,” said Concordia’s CEO Basil Williams.

“My experience interviewing and profiling more than 20 leading institutional investors has taught me a great deal and convinced me that hedge funds will only grow in importance as a component of institutional portfolios,” said Rittereiser.  “However, as I learned from the legendary Frank Meyer, hedge funds must manage their businesses as well as they manage their portfolios. Institutional investors need managers that offer compelling investment opportunities and robust, client-oriented businesses.”

New York and London-based Concordia Advisors has some $1 billion in assets under management.
