Below are four key factors that we believe differentiate Aetos from our peers:
Aetos’ Co-Founder Anne Casscells brings a unique perspective to investing, having previously served as Chief Investment Officer of Stanford Management Company. Our senior investment professionals also average over 20 years of hedge fund investing experience as fiduciaries, in addition to deep capital markets expertise across asset classes, securities, and investment strategies.
Knowledge Sharing/“Extension of Staff”
At Aetos, we pride ourselves on the high level of knowledge transfer with our clients’ investment staffs, whereby individuals have access to senior Aetos investment leadership. In addition to portfolio details, we share economic and market insights across traditional and alternative strategies, as well as provide training and education on best practices across areas such as strategy allocation, investment and operational due diligence, and risk management.
Significant Investor in Hedge Funds and Other Alternative Investment Strategies
Aetos is large enough to access the most sought-after hedge funds, yet nimble enough to identify unique alpha sources and make investments of meaningful size. Our size and industry stature often enable us to negotiate favorable terms on behalf of clients.
Customized Investment Solutions
Creating customized portfolios is in Aetos’ DNA, starting with our first portfolio in 2001. Currently, approximately 80% of our current assets under management are in highly customized mandates, including multi-strategy and specialty portfolios structured according to our clients’ investment needs.
