Big River Launches Managed Accounts Platform

Jan 7 2014 | 8:53am ET

Jackson, Mississippi-based Big River Capital Corporation is launching a managed accounts platform for institutional investors.

Big River CEO Bill Robertson says the platform is designed to compete with hedge funds, arguing managed accounts are the better investment vehicle.

In a statement announcing the launch, Robertson makes the case for managed accounts over hedge funds, arguing the former offer better protection against fraud, better liquidity, lower fees—the Big River Platform charges 20% of performance but no management fee—and greater transparency in addition to giving clients “complete control over their assets.”

The Big River funds include Big River Risk Managers, a fund of hedge funds launched on January 1, 2008; Big River Real-Estate Partners,  a fund that invests in income-producing residential properties launched on June 1, 2009; and the Big River Report Portfolio, a dividend growth strategy with a trading overlay launched on January 1, 2012.
