Agecroft Partners: Competitive Advantages

Quality of Hedge Funds

Agecroft Partners is highly selective of the hedge funds we represent. We utilize an institutional due diligence process to narrow the broad universe of hedge fund managers down to the select few we ultimately represent. It is Agecroft’s objective to partner with the highest quality hedge funds possible that have clearly defined investment processes and risk controls, solid pedigrees of investment team, and strong historical performance. Ultimately, the reputation of a third party marketing firm is based on the quality of the hedge fund managers it represents.
