Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Redwood City and New York based KBR Capital Partners (“KBR”), an innovative alternative investments firm, has announced further advancement of its progressive institutional multi-manager strategy which is designed to deliver a diversified and distinctive array of investment opportunities to individual investors.
KBR and Los Angeles and New York based Thread Capital Management, LLC have formed Thread-KBR, LLC, a joint venture designed to create, distribute and manage public and private programs that employ Thread’s proprietary model. Thread operates an institutional platform that invests capital strategically in quality small and microcap firms through structured debt, equity-linked and equity securities, with the goal of providing superior risk adjusted returns.
"While we have been expanding KBR’s innovative and collaborative multi-manager model, we have been searching for the right institutional partner to fill the equity component of our portfolio allocation fulfilment strategy. We believe that Thread is a great fit for KBR, its strategy and the retail investment marketplace, due to their experience, concept and vision," said Vinay Kumar, Managing Partner of KBR Capital Partners.
"The Thread model of strategic equity and equity-linked corporate investments was designed to meet the return requirements of our institutional client base," added Andy Dube, Managing Partner of Thread Capital. "Through KBR and its product development, marketing and distribution teams, we are confident that we will be able to bring an institutional model to the individual investor, that they likely would not have access to otherwise."
"One of the core goals of KBR is to create a resource for the industry that provides diversified portfolio allocation solutions that are generally low-correlated and can provide differentiation in a crowded marketplace,” said Daniel Oschin, Managing Director of KBR Capital Partners. "Through Thread-KBR, we believe that we have a solution to achieve this goal and provide a constructive alternative.”
