Aetos was founded in 2001 by Anne Casscells, formerly the Chief Investment Officer of the Stanford Management Company, and Michael Klein, formerly the President of Morgan Stanley’s institutional funds business. With decades of deep capital markets and related fiduciary experience, our founding partners and broader team bring together a unique and complementary set of talents and skills.

Aetos was founded on the premise of working with institutions to create best-in-class investment programs, complementing their internal resources. Our goal is to provide a solution for institutions to invest in a superior risk-adjusted way, as well as to act as an extension of our clients’ staff—seeking to provide high-touch service and to serve as a trusted partner.
