La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2008
Altegris Investments, (http://www.altegris.com), is pleased to announce the strategic partnership with United Capital Financial Advisers to provide one of the country's leading wealth advisers with dedicated access to distinctive alternative investments through the Altegris Premier platform.
"The Altegris Premier platform harnesses the deep alternative investment expertise of Altegris in hedge funds and managed futures, further strengthening the resources available to our wealth advisers in making educated choices with their clients," said Joseph Duran, CEO and co-founding partner of United Capital. "We are pleased to be working with Altegris to deliver a comprehensive alternative investment program to our entire adviser network."
Altegris and United Capital worked together for the past year to provide an alternative investment platform designed to bolster adviser productivity and enhance client portfolios. The Altegris Premier platform provides advisers with a full-service approach that includes access to alternative investments, back-office solutions, educational programs, and the tools to analyze, evaluate, and monitor their clients' portfolios. This allows advisers to potentially grow their bottom line by managing their clients, not their business.
"We applaud the foresight of United Capital in seeing the value of the Altegris Premier platform early on, especially in light of today's financial crisis" commented Jon Sundt, President of Altegris Investments. "The Altegris Premier platform is designed to provide access to leading edge investment products with the potential to strengthen client portfolios - to both weather the current financial storm and deliver long-term performance as the economy recovers."
"We designed the Altegris Premier platform to meet the challenges of the growing independent wealth adviser universe. The goal from the start was not just to provide access, but to build a resource and tools for advisers to manage both their client and business needs," said Jason ZumBerge, Co-Director, Institutional Relationships. "Working with United Capital has been a pleasure. As with all our RIA relationships, we continue to tailor our platform to help advisers stay ahead of the curve."
