Dec 2 2008 | 8:51am ET

U.K.-based Fortune Asset Management has entered into a strategic partnership with HighView Financial Group to provide alternative asset management solutions to Canadian wealth management firms. 

“While there is no shortage of hedge funds available today, the challenge for advisers and investors now more than ever is to truly understand the structures, the strategies, the risks and opportunities with each,” said Greg Rodger, chief investment officer of Canadian-based HighView. 

“This exclusive relationship with Fortune allows HighView to significantly enhance our offering to clients by allowing us to address this important asset class in a very disciplined manner,” said Mark Barnicutt, president and CEO of HighView.

The two firms will work with advisory firms, asset management firms, family offices and institutional investors.
