Nov 21 2016 | 6:01pm ET

Liquid alternatives specialist Hatteras has announced the return of business development executive Casey Brunner to the firm.

Brunner rejoins as a partner and managing director to focus on business development and client relations, serving financial professionals in the brokerage, RIA, and consulting communities, Hatteras said in a statement. 

Brunner’s return follows a number of recent strategic decisions, including the recent formation of a subadvisory relationship with Adams Street Partners, in pursuit of a vision to become an alternative investment boutique dedicated to serving financial advisors. 

Brunner brings more than 19 years of financial services experience to the role, Hatteras said. Before originally joined Hatteras in 2011 as Midwest regional director, he held leadership positions with The Rock Creek Group and Morgan Stanley Investment Management. 

“Casey’s return further supports our commitment to serving Financial Advisors and providing alternative solutions designed to solve their needs,” said David Perkins, CEO of Hatteras Funds. “We are excited to welcome Casey back to the Hatteras family. Casey brings extensive experience in alternative investments along with a commitment and dedication to working with Financial Advisors.”

Based in Raleigh, NC, Hatteras Funds was founded in 2003 by Perkins. The boutique investment firm provides a range of liquid alternative investment solutions for financial advisors and their clients, including multi-strategy, absolute return, equity long/short, managed futures and debt long/short funds.
