Agecroft hires head of marketing for Europe

Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Agecroft Partners, a global hedge fund consulting and third party marketing firm, has hired hedge fund marketing veteran Jim Sauls as Managing Director and Head of European Marketing. Jim brings over 20 years of institutional experience marketing hedge funds and derivative products on a global basis. Before Agecroft Partners Jim spent 10 years with Calatrava Securities, where he was Director of Marketing and CEO of their affiliated commodity pool operator. In these rolls he successfully raised capital from both European and US investors for multiple hedge fund managers and became intimately acquainted with all aspects of hedge fund operations, risk management, administration, compliance and reporting.

Prior to Calatrava, Jim held senior marketing and sales roles at both Fimat USA and Sanwa Futures, where he developed a strong understanding of global capital markets and international investors. Jim’s responsibilities will include heading Agecroft’s marketing efforts in Europe and assisting with due diligence on potential managers the firm may represent. Jim’s in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of investments strategies fits in with Agecroft Partners core philosophy of providing value in multiple ways to investors. This includes sharing advice regarding hedge fund asset allocation, manager selection, hedge fund industry trends, industry survey results and being the liaison between investors and the select hedge funds that have made it through their due diligence process.

“Jim is a wonderful addition to our firm. It is imperative that the members of our firm are highly technically competent. In addition, Jim 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 six 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.
