New York-based advisors Krusen Capital and Atrato get together for LionHedge Platform

Friday, June 29, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update – Krusen Capital Management, the hedge fund and private equity advisory firm, has partnered with investment advisor Atrato Advisors to provide independent research and due diligence for its LionHedge Platform.

Krusen Capital provides strategic and tactical advice on alternative investments in combination with access into some of the industry's top manager talent, targeting independent wealth managers, family offices, high-net-worth individuals, and select institutional investors. Atrato will oversee qualitative, quantitative, and operational due diligence on the existing menu of managers, as well as new additions to the Platform. Krusen and Atrato will provide complete transparency to LionHedge investors, making its research content available to all clients through Krusen Capital’s proprietary website portal.

Krusen Capital, founded by Charles Krusen in January 2009, currently offers access to 24 hedge funds across the entire range of strategies, 4 customized baskets, and 3 private equity funds, and 2 liquid alternative solutions. The Krusen Capital model provides institutional due diligence, fiduciary advice with no conflicts of interest, lower investment minimums, and the lowest fees in the industry. Atrato Advisors, founded in October 2008 and led by partners Brian Reich and Janna Sobolev, will support Krusen's Platform through independent evaluation of LionHedge's managers, as well as ongoing qualitative, quantitative, and operational analysis. Atrato will assist Krusen's clients to develop customized portfolio solutions and forward-looking asset allocation advice.

"The partnership with Atrato is an ideal fit for our business, and more importantly, our clients. In an exhaustive search evaluating independent research providers, our goal was to partner with a organization with an expertise in alternative assets, an institutional due diligence process, and an established infrastructure with a highly experienced team. We also needed a firm that provided transparency in its research and takes a boutique approach in providing a very 'high-touch' experience for our investors," said Mr. Krusen.

"We're thrilled to be chosen by Krusen for this assignment. Both our businesses operate under the philosophy that alternatives investing should be a highly customized approach, with each client having his own set of objectives and risk-return criteria," said Mr. Reich. "We also think that investors, regardless of their size or affiliation, demand total transparency and accountability, particularly in the high-net-worth space," he added.
