Red Rocks Capital, which invests in publicly traded private equity firms, has enlisted Echelon Capital Group, a multi-strategy boutique asset management firm, to market its wares to the institutional and intermediary markets.
Based in Golden, Colo., Red Rocks is managed by founders Adam Goldman and Mark Sunderhuse, and brings to market what it calls the first U.S.-based listed p.e. strategy, comprised of 30 to 50 publicly traded private equity shops.
