Said Rod Hinze, KeyPoint managing member and portfolio manager, in a statement: “KeyPoint is committed to investing in the people, process and disciplines we need to continue on a sustainable growth trajectory while maintaining solid returns. Scott and Ali are critical to this objective, and we are delighted that they will be working with the firm in their new capacities.”
