Agecroft Partners, a global hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm, has hired hedge fund marketing veteran Jim Sauls as managing director and head of European marketing.
Sauls brings over 20 years of institutional experience marketing hedge funds and derivative products on a global basis. Before Agecroft Partners, he spent 10 years with Calatrava Securities, where he was director of marketing and CEO of their affiliated commodity pool operator. In these rolls he successfully raised capital from both European and U.S. investors for multiple hedge fund managers and became intimately acquainted with all aspects of hedge fund operations, risk management, administration, compliance and reporting.
Prior to Calatrava, Sauls held senior marketing and sales roles at both Fimat USA and Sanwa Futures, where he developed a strong understanding of global capital markets and international investors.
Sauls’ responsibilities at Agecroft will include heading the firm’s marketing efforts in Europe and assisting with due diligence on potential managers the firm may represent.
“Jim is a wonderful addition to our firm. It is imperative that the members of our firm are highly technically competent. In addition, Jim has a reputation of having high integrity and strong ethical standards which are vital characteristics to build the long term reputation of our firm,” said Don Steinbrugge, managing partner at Agecroft Partners.
Agecroft Partners was founded in 2007 with the aim of creating an institutional quality hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm. Agecroft utilizes an institutional due diligence process when evaluating hedge funds and represents less than 1% of the hedge funds that the firm analyzes.
