Alternative Investment Group, a Southport, Conn.-based investment management firm specializing in long/short equity strategies, has promoted Chris Ayton to partner.

Ayton has served as director of investments since joining the firm in March 2008. Based in London, he is the group’s first internationally based partner. He also serves on the six-person investment committee.
 
As one of seven equity partners at the firm, Ayton will continue to focus on identifying and evaluating European and Asian managers.  

“The success of our firm is directly related to the quality of our people, and Chris possesses the key attributes we look for in a partner—deep knowledge and experience in investment markets, in this case, European and Asian markets,” said David Storrs, Alternative Investment Group CEO. 
 
Prior to joining Alternative Investment Group, Ayton spent 12 years at Stamford Associates where he was most recently head of manager research. In his former role, he specialized in managers investing in Asia.  He began his career at Bacon & Woodrow. 

Founded in 1996, Alternative Investment Group is partner owned and has a 15-year track record of investing with alternative asset managers in the U.S. and internationally.
