Atrato Advisors Hires Vantine To Lead Credit & Event-Driven Research

Jun 17 2016 | 8:52pm ET

Alternative investment advisory firm Atrato Advisors has brought former Chi-Rho Financial executive Andrew Vantine aboard to lead credit and event-driven strategy research for the firm. 

Vantine was previously co-director of research at Chi-Rho, an Atlanta-based fund of funds and multi-manager investment specialist, according to a statement. He will report to Atrato director of research Michael Boensch.

“We are beyond thrilled to have Andy join our firm,” said Brian Reich, partner at Atrato, in the statement. “We’ve known him for a number of years now and he’s going to contribute tremendously to our research effort,” said Mr. Reich.  

“The diversity of opportunities we are seeing across the event-driven, distressed, and structured credit landscape demands that we have extremely solid and nuanced understanding of these strategies, and Andy is the right person to lead our research in these areas,” Reich continued.

New York-based Atrato, led by Reich and co-partner Janna Sobolev, is a $3 billion boutique advisor for family offices, wealth management platforms, and institutions with unique alternative investment programs. It was founded in late 2008 and provides customized research and advisory solutions to investors in alternative strategies, including portfolio advisory, outsourced investment and operational due diligence, and open-architecture platform development.
