Nashville, Tenn.-based Avondale Partners has hired Patrick Davis and David Hale for its long/short equity hedge fund, Avondale Conquest.

Davis joins Avondale as a director responsible for growth of Avondale Conquest and other alternative products for the eastern half of the U.S. and Texas. Previously, he was president and CEO of F.P. Davis & Company, a boutique financial services firm he founded in 2004 catering to institutional investors and hedge fund managers. Davis’ time in the hedge fund space had included stints at several firms, including Silver Leaf Partners in New York City, Alternative Investment Resource in Chicago and Van Hedge Fund Advisors in Nashville.

Hale comes to Avondale as a director responsible for growth of Avondale’s wealth and asset management divisions, including Avondale Conquest, for the West Coast. Previously, he was sole managing principal of DNH Capital, a boutique wealth and asset management firm in SanFrancisco. His 12-year career in the industry includes serving as a vice president, investments at UBS Financial Services and a vice president and wealth advisor at Morgan Stanley.

“As we look to expand our wealth and asset management business into new markets, it is extremely important to us to have the right people, with the right expertise in place,” said Phil Krebs, senior managing partner and head of wealth and asset management for Avondale. “David and Patrick are the right people, and we are excited about the opportunity to introduce our services more broadly across the country.”

Founded in 2001, Avondale Partners is an independent firm specializing in capital markets, investment banking, and wealth and asset management.
