Agile Fund Solutions adds hedge fund specialist to team

RELATED TOPICS​

Agile Fund Solutions has added hedge fund industry specialists Greg Gleeson and Andrea Schweikert to the firm’s Southern California team.

"Southern California presents a major opportunity for Agile. Greg is a veteran player in the SoCal market and has overseen hedge funds and family offices across all size scales,” says Vincent Calcagno, CEO. "Coupled with Andi's experience serving hedge funds, private equity and venture capital funds while at Rothstein Kass it gives Agile the ability to deliver on our mission of enabling managers to scale their business by having them focus on the portfolio while we focus on everything else." 

"I'm thrilled to be joining the Agile team. Agile's "best-in-class" outsourcing model allows portfolio managers to utilise us for the aspects of their business we're best at, allowing them to focus on making money for their investors, which is what they are best at," says Greg Gleeson. "For many strategies and firms outsourcing is the future. This is evident from Agile's rapid growth and I'm thankful that I have the ability to be a part of the evolution Agile is leading for our industry."

"As Greg alluded to, the hedge fund managers I'm working with are really excited about Agile's forward-thinking approach towards the traditional finance, operations and compliance functions," says Andrea Schweikert, further adding "I couldn't be happier to be able to be a part of this dynamic team that operates in such a supportive family culture."

In thinking about the past year, Nick Castoria, Agile's Founder, says: "To think that a year ago we had 11 team members and now we stand at 22 is both humbling and exhilarating all at the same time. I couldn't be more excited about where Agile, our managers and the team are heading."
