OVERVIEW

EACM Advisors is a leading fund of funds manager who has been helping clients achieve their investment objectives for more than 30 years. We specialize in both hedge fund and long-only multi-manager portfolio construction. In the hedge fund space, we focus on multi-strategy fund of funds with consistent return objectives, as well as more specialized solutions which may be driven by a single strategy (e.g., long/short equity), specific objectives (e.g., socially responsible), or liquid structures (e.g., a 40-act mutual fund). In the long-only space, we focus on multi-manager funds comprised of entrepreneurial, fundamentally driven managers. We believe that active management can produce meaningful alpha and that manager and style risk can be reduced through a multimanager structure.

EACM was among the pioneers in manager-of-manager investing and has over 30 years' experience in the evaluation and selection of investment managers. We have managed alternative fund portfolios for over 20 years and traditional multi-manager portfolios for over 30 years.

INVESTMENT PHILOSPHY

EACM's investment philosophy is defined by a focus on integrity, commitment to diversification, aversion to risk, and demand for significant information flow from underlying managers. An emphasis on qualitative analysis, complemented by disciplined risk management and manager due diligence, form the foundation of EACM's historical success.

TEAM

EACM pursues a team-oriented approach to investments, risk, and operations led by senior professionals with an average of 25 years' of industry experience. The depth and stability of EACM's senior staff has been a key component of the firm's competitive edge.
