London-based Cube Capital, an alternative investment firm with $1 billion in assets under management, has tapped Stephen Petretto to head its marketing efforts in the U.S..
Petretto joins Cube from the Portland, Ore.-based consulting firm RVK, bringing over 12 years of experience in the investment management industry. At RVK, he was involved in client development, asset advisement, and research for multi-billion dollar investment programs including pension funds, endowments and foundations. His career has also included time with the Hartford Investment Management Company and Morgan Stanley.
Said Peter Madsen, Cube Capital managing director, in a statement: “Hiring Stephen is an important step in addressing the increased demand for our strategies. Stephen’s hands-on investment experience and familiarity with institutional allocators’ needs are valuable tools in helping us communicate the benefits of our unique product set. We’re a bit smaller than our peers and so tend to be overlooked by larger investors familiar with the more classic manager types. But the value we bring, and the way we approach the world, makes for an interesting story. We plan on Stephen helping us communicate that.”
Cube Capital was founded in 2003 and has two primary investment activities; a hybrid fund-of-funds strategy and an event-driven, single manager strategy.
