Walter Global Asset Management is building a network of affiliates through enduring partnerships with high-potential investment managers, financial services and wealth management firms who operate within the asset management industry. Each partner is unique, and so is each of our partnerships.
Our model, based on customized ownership stakes, emphasizes partnership, not integration. Within our platform, each affiliate maintains its brand, culture and entrepreneurial independence, bringing what it does best to the table – only with greater resources to drive its growth.
Our objective is simple: to become the preferred partner to exceptional boutique asset managers in writing the next chapter of their history.
We invest in firms that can sustain investment excellence while adding significant value for their clients via innovative and differentiated strategies or distinctive business models. Our long-term partnerships are built on a shared vision and aligned interests.
Together, we are building more than a network. We are delivering a first-class platform based on sustainable growth.
