London-based Clontarf Capital, an alternative asset advisory firm, and the Beryl Consulting Group, a boutique hedge fund research firm based in New Jersey, have partnered to develop and enhance their hedge fund due diligence, portfolio construction and risk management processes.
Beryl will work with Clontarf to provide single manager quantitative analysis tools. The group will use Clontarf’s global network and qualitative due diligence to complement its existing quantitative and qualitative research capabilities.
“This alliance will strengthen our qualitative research, broaden our alternative investments frontier to include private equity, venture capital, real estate and commodities and extend our global reach,” Vidak Radonjic, Beryl’s founder, said. “Being a hedge fund specialist we come across investors that are looking to add a wide mix of alternatives to their existing hedge fund investments in order to further diversify their portfolios. This is an opportune time to join forces with a firm such as Clontarf which will strongly complement Beryl's hedge fund expertise.”
