Altegris Investments, an alternative investment broker/dealer, has promoted one of its senior alternative investment professionals and hired two additional senior staff members.

Todd Trusso, a five-year veteran of Altegris, was recently named director, private client group taking on the broader management and leadership responsibilities of the firm’s team of investment professionals serving sophisticated investors and family offices.

In addition, Chris Maudlin has joined the Altegris team as a vice president in the private client group. Prior to Altegris, Maudlin played a key role as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch within a top-ranked team of advisors responsible for the management of over $700 million in client assets with a focus on continual market analysis for potential investment opportunities for clients.

Chris Vigliatore has also joined Altegris as an associate vice president and will serve the firm's expanding institutional relationships team. In his previous role with MAN Financial, Vigliatore worked in managed futures and alternative investment operations, focusing on providing investment and trade execution solutions to external institutional sales forces.

"In this challenging investment environment, we are seeing unprecedented growth in alternative investment products, as sophisticated investors and wealth advisors seek historically non-correlated alternatives with traditional lon-only portfolios,” said CEO Jon Sundt.
