New York-based Krusen Capital Management has engaged Atrato Advisors to provide research and due diligence for Krusen’s LionHedge hedge fund platform.
Atrato will oversee qualitative, quantitative and operational due diligence for the platform’s existing managers, as well as for new additions. Research content will be available to all clients through Krusen’s web portal.
Founded by Charles Krusen in January 2009, Krusen Capital currently offers access to 24 hedge funds across a range of strategies, four customized baskets, three private equity funds and two liquid alternative solutions.
Atrato Advisors was founded in October 2008 and is led by partners Brian Reich and Janna Sobolev.
"The partnership with Atrato is an ideal fit for our business, and more importantly, our clients. In an exhaustive search evaluating independent research providers, our goal was to partner with a organization with an expertise in alternative assets, an institutional due diligence process, and an established infrastructure with a highly experienced team. We also needed a firm that provided transparency in its research and takes a boutique approach in providing a very 'high-touch' experience for our investors," said Krusen in a statement.
