Walter GAM acquires stake in Auspice Capital Advisors

Laxman Pai, Opalesque Asia:

Canadian private equity firm Walter Global Asset Management has acquired a minority interest in Auspice Capital Advisors, a Calgary-based asset management firm that specializes in alternative and non-correlated investment strategies utilizing a wide array of commodities and financial markets.

With this transaction, its fifth in the past year, Walter GAM obtains a minority interest in Auspice - its first investment in Alberta and Western Canada, said a press release from the international PE platform.

"As a strategic partner, Walter GAM will bolster Auspice's plans to expand its strategies across a greater network, while accelerating the growth of its assets under management through the next decade by continuing to establish strong client relationships," said the release.

Walter GAM will also strengthen Auspice's efforts to increase its geographic footprint and gain a stronger foothold with institutional investors, high-net-worth clients, and the overall retail sector, it said.

In addition to Walter GAM's investment in the firm, its parent company-Walter Financial-will also invest directly in one of the Auspice's funds.

"Auspice's innovative strategies are based on a systematic, quantitative approach that delivers non-correlated returns to traditional asset classes, and tend to perform particularly well during times of crisis," said Sylvain Brosseau, CEO and founding partner of Walter GAM. ......................
