Alternative Capital Advisers aligns with Strategic Capital Alternatives

Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Opalesque Industry Update - Alternative Capital Advisers, LLC (ACA), an outsourced hedge fund solution provider,has announced that Strategic Capital Alternatives, LLC (SCA) has selected ACA to provide an alternative investment vehicle to its network of independent investment advisors and affiliated RIA’s.

Alternative Capital Advisers manages a Master Select Fund, an investment vehicle with multiple series each of which is advised by a different investment manager. With only one allocation, ACA enables an RIA, Financial Advisor, High Net Worth individual or family office to receive a complete solution for the hedge fund allocation in their portfolio. ACA’s differentiated approach offers unlimited flexibility – at no added cost – by allowing the advisor to construct a diversified and unique portfolio for each client depending upon their specific investment objectives and risk tolerance.

ACA sources, evaluates and performs extensive due diligence on each manager. ACA focuses on undiscovered and smaller managers with proven track records, a segment of the investment universe that has generated significant excess returns over time. Our interactive portal allows investors to review investment strategies, define risk parameters and construct potential portfolios - all while integrating with an advisor’s back-office infrastructure.

Jamie Caputo, Founder and Managing Member for ACA, commented, “we are pleased that SCA has chosen ACA as its partner to assist their clients in building custom hedge fund portfolios.” He added that, “the fit between RIA’s seeking uncorrelated returns and undiscovered investment talent is clear and we offer a vehicle that can complement an investor’s traditional assets with access to managers that have been overlooked by mainstream institutional investors.”

Timothy Feehan, CEO and Co-founder at SCA, commented on the need for alternatives, “The addition of alternative investments, specifically emerging managers, significantly improves the risk/return characteristics of portfolios for our clients.” He added, “ACA has the background and depth of experience to source the talent that we require, and no added fees to our investors compared to fund-of-funds, and in many cases lower fees, is a huge plus.”
