Krusen Capital partners with Meeschaert Group to offer alternatives solutions

Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update: Krusen Capital Management, LLC, the New York-based SEC-registered investment advisor, has announced a strategic partnership with Meeschaert Group, a leading European private banking and wealth management firm, to provide clients with alternatives advisory services, manager and strategy due diligence, and access to a platform of alternative investment solutions. Krusen will be responsible for identifying actionable opportunities, analyzing traditional and alternative solutions, conducting due diligence on best in class managers, and monitoring and advising on investments through their lifecycles.

Charles Krusen, CEO, believes that hedged strategies are creating a paradigm shift in traditional portfolio management, reducing the volatility associated with long only portfolios. Alternative strategies provide both measurable risk-adjusted return and non-correlated sources of return that combine to create a superior efficient frontier. These strategies often require product-specific expertise, comprehensive due diligence and detailed risk analytical capabilities. ”Our partnership with Meeschaert, an established and well-respected financial institution in Europe, allows us to share our experience with alternatives strategies and managers with a wider audience of investors. We are pleased to have an association with an organization which shares our emphasis on trust, the integrity of the investment process, and the role of the fiduciary in guiding a client’s investment program.” Through this relationship, Krusen will be able to leverage its current alternatives expertise by offering advisory services in portfolio construction, manager due diligence, and access to top tier managers.

“Krusen’s alternatives experience and focus on best practices align with the values of our Firm. Through the LionHedge Platform, we will be able to offer our clients innovative and customized alternative investment solutions.” The partnership enables Meeschaert to offer clients a comprehensive lineup of best-in-class alternative investment opportunities that will be among the most competitive solutions in the private banking industry today.

According to its website, Krusen offers single manager hedge funds with a lower investment minimum of $100,000. The firm also offers access to hedge funds of funds, liquid portfolios and private equity funds. The firm serves as an independent fee-only advisor.
