Agecroft Partners Acquires Third-Party Marketing Firm Alta Via Advisors

Nov 30 2015 | 5:30pm ET

Agecroft Partners has acquired the business of third-party hedge fund marketing boutique Alta Via Advisors, according to a press release. 

Alta Via’s client base will be migrated over to Agecroft Partners and Andrew Feldman, Alta Via’s founding principal, will join Agecroft’s team in a senior management role where he will be responsible for all European operations as well as parts of North American client coverage. 

Feldman will also be responsible for helping the firm with hedge fund due diligence, creating hedge fund industry research white papers, and helping guide the overall vision of the firm. He has more than 30 years of experience in the financial industry and has a  strong understanding of global capital markets, hedge fund strategies and institutional investors. 

Feldman's knowledge and approach fits with Agecroft’s philosophies regarding hedge fund asset allocation, manager selection, and hedge fund industry trends. In addition, “Andy has a reputation of high integrity and strong ethical standards which are vital characteristics to build the long term reputation of our firm,” said Agecroft Partners’ managing partner Don Steinbrugge in a statement.

Agecroft Partners will continue to look for strategic acquisitions in the future, added Steinbrugge, as consolidation continues within the third party marketing industry and disproportionate amounts of capital are raised by larger industry participants. 

Founded in 2007, Agecroft Partners is an institutional quality hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm. The firm utilizes an institutional due diligence process when evaluating hedge funds and represents less than 1% of the hedge funds that it analyzes. Members of the Agecroft Partners team, in addition to being a co-founder of major hedge fund industry event Hedgeopolis, have spoken at over 100 alternative investment conferences, appeared in hundreds of industry articles, and are regular guests on business television.
