We have worked with hedge funds ranging from large multi-strategy funds to single strategy funds and fund-of-funds. Our team has a track record of recruiting investment professionals with a proven ability to generate alpha at both the product (long/short, distressed, converts, quantitative) and industry (technology, industrial, consumer, financials, utilities, telecommunications) levels. We have also helped hedge funds augment their operating and sales staffs.
Portfolio Management and Research
The heart of any hedge fund is its investment acumen. We have successfully recruited professionals in a wide variety of investment styles across all capitalizations. Our work ranges from the senior Portfolio Manager to the mid-level Analyst. This broad experience not only gives us great perspective on the market but also has resulted in a detailed database of investment talent and compensation.
Marketing and Customer Service
Management & Capital Partners has done extensive work in the area of marketing and client service for firms at all stages of development from small, but rapidly growing managers to more established firms who are focused on maintaining a current asset level with a high level of customer service.

The role of trading at hedge funds is evolving quickly. As the speed, scale and complexity of trading changes, so have the needs of our clients.
