https://www.linkedin.com/company/asset-growth-part...
Asset Growth Partners is a holding company for a leading multi-boutique investment firm led by prior top executives from Affiliated Managers Group (AMG), The Carlyle Group and Wachovia-First Union. I was recruited to the firm as a Partner and Equity Owner. • Well-known investment teams were lifted-out after top-tier success (a) at one of the industry’s ten largest endowments and (b) after achieving consistent top-tier success at prominent firms including Maverick Capital (led by Lee Ainslie), Millennium Management (Izzy Englander), BlueCrest Capital (Michael Platt) and Essex Investment Management (Joseph McNay). • Our boutiques manage (a) a series of strong-performing multi-factor, low-volatility equity strategies and (b) one of the industry’s better-performing long/short global equity strategies. • Have excelled in covering the Financial Institutions, Sub-Advisory, DCIO, Consulting, OCIO, Wealth Management, Family Office and Emerging Manager channels in the US, Canada and Europe. • After excelling at larger firms my entire career, I took this more entrepreneurial position as an equity owner in a prospective high growth, high reward business. Was recruited to firm to take a lead role in building a $50 billion-plus in aum multi-boutique platform. • While raising assets for these underlying boutiques, we received an offer we could not refuse for our largest boutique manager (multi-factor equity) from a well-known wealth management firm and its prominent private equity backer. We recently completed this sale. Asset Growth Partners (AGP) is a multi-boutique business platform allowing top investment management boutiques to successfully compete in an environment challenged by the likelihood of reduced future investment returns, significant continued fee compression and the need for greatly improved overall business efficiency.
