Simmons is a 20-year industry vet who has participated in “significant capital raising and fund development for numerous alternative funds.” Prior to joining the Connecticut-based Southport Harbor, he served as the head of prime services and capital introductions at several boutique prime brokerages, including Maxim Group, Lighthouse Financial Group and Terra Nova Financial.

We strongly believe his addition to the team complements Southport Harbor’s consultative approach to capital raising and fund development," said David Rondeau, managing principal of Southport Harbor Associates, in a statement.
