About Us

An opportunity exists in the market to bridge the gap between investors hungry for alpha and alternative asset managers that can produce higher alpha by more efficiently delivering niche, emerging strategies to a wider range of investors in a more risk- controlled environment.

4Alts is an emerging manager alternative asset platform focused on providing fund solutions to both investors and managers. 4Alts was founded by a team of experienced managed account professionals who witnessed firsthand the market demand for efficient, less costly and more risk-controlled access to alpha from emerging strategies.
