We have provided advice and expertise on alternative investments for the past two decades, and we have helped our clients allocate significant assets to various non-traditional investment strategies. We take an integrated approach to alternative investments that considers the portfolio in its totality. We have specific team members dedicated to hedge fund, private equity and real estate investment strategies, and our broader research team and consultants augment the efforts of these individuals.
Because of the unique risks and complexities associated with non-registered investment vehicles, ACG has developed a rigorous due diligence process specific to these strategies. The reduced transparency that often exists requires an added level of due diligence on the managers’ operations and risk controls. We place significant emphasis on understanding the organizational structure, back office functions, and the risk monitoring, compliance and trading functions of the firm.
