We identify emerging portfolio managers that generate alpha
Ashton Global uses a global network across a variety of industries and disciplines to source undiscovered investment managers that are capable of generating sustainable alpha over time. We provide a platform for institutional investors to access the higher returns of emerging managers via seed capital transactions. Our key partnerships and experience in manager due diligence supports our robust emerging manager platform.
The Unique Advantages of Emerging Managers
Why Emerging Managers Outperform
Emerging managers substantially outperform more mature hedge funds because they are more nimble and can invest in ideas that are overlooked by larger firms.
New hedge fund managers are also generally more committed and have fewer conflicts of interest. New fund managers must outperform to survive, so they have a greater incentive to succeed.
Ashton Global Emerging Manager Platform
Our platform enables emerging and diverse managers to scale quickly with institutional capital. An extensive network of distribution channels and capital introduction opportunities provides sustainable growth for emerging asset managers.
The process begins with screening methods to identify managers that are well-connected in their respective markets, with interesting pipelines of public or private investment opportunities. Once we identify potential managers that offer unique strategies, we develop these managers with co-investments or small mandates to prove out the investment thesis, and to help them build a track record.
