Hedge fund and private equity fundraising boutique The Silverfern Group has added Lobi Powell and Christopher Slinger to its management team. Powell joins as managing director, and while Slinger joins as director.

Prior to joining Silverfern, Powell was the founder and president of hedge fund marketing firm Elan Alternative Group and Slinger was on the sales team at IRG Research.
