CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER
The world of boutique hedge funds promises excellent risk adjusted returns, however it is often considered opaque, risky and confusing. The goal of SunSpear is to navigate that market on behalf of our clients and to use our expertise to identify a selection of smaller, world-class managers that can be combined into an effective and reliable investment product.
