MacLean Securities is a private placement company which focuses purely on raising capital for specialist investment funds from institutional investors.
We assist ‘alpha’ funds and fund of funds specialising in ‘alpha’ funds.
We define alpha as positive performance irrespective of, and not correlated to, underlying market direction.
We believe managers producing alpha often share similar characteristics:
- A targeted, often narrow, specific investment focus.
- An identifiable edge often related to previous professional experience.
- ‘Double digit’ risk adjusted returns which will have little correlation to broad benchmarks.
- The investment team will be significantly invested in their own strategy.
Often such funds have a very small peer group or can be unique. Often such funds are capacity constrained.
For such funds we offer rapid access to an active institutional investor base
