Agecroft Partners hires hedge fund veteran

Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - Agecroft Partners, a global hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm, has hired hedge fund veteran Cara Fleckenstein as a Managing Director.

Cara brings considerable institutional hedge fund experience to Agecroft Partners. Her experience includes marketing at a multi-billion dollar hedge fund, capital introduction at Bank of America, institutional options sales at Citibank, and options market-making at Societe Generale.

During this time she has developed a very strong knowledge of hedge fund investment strategies and the capital markets, which should give her significant credibility with large institutional investors. Cara’s responsibilities will include assisting with due diligence on potential hedge funds the firm may represent, and introducing the firm’s hedge fund clients to large institutional investors located within the Western/Southern United States, Latin America, Middle East, and Asia. Her focus on Latin America, Middle East and Asia will augment Agecroft’s global coverage and allow its hedge fund clients to utilize the firm’s full distribution capabilities, or a more tailored approach to a specific region of the world.

“Cara is a wonderful addition to our firm. Our business model is to introduce top quality hedge funds in a consultative manner to large institutional investors. It is imperative that the members of our firm are highly technically competent. In addition, Cara has a reputation of having high integrity and strong ethical standards which are vital characteristics to build the long term reputation of our firm,” stated Agecroft Partners’ Managing Partner Don Steinbrugge.

Agecroft Partners was founded in 2007 with the thesis of creating an institutional quality hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm. Since its founding, Agecroft Partners has been selected five years in a row as the Third Party Marketer of the Year by a major hedge fund industry organization. Agecroft utilizes an institutional due diligence process when evaluating hedge funds and represents less than 1% of the hedge funds that the firm analyzes.

In addition, Agecroft Partners has emerged as one the most sought after firms by industry conferences and the media for the company’s views on the hedge fund marketplace and institutional investors. Members of the Agecroft Partners team have spoken at over 60 alternative investment conferences, have appeared in over 200 industry articles in 2011 and are regular guests on business television including Bloomberg, Reuters Insider and Fox Business News.
