The LHA Ventures platform was launched in January 2019 and welcomed its first manager, Focused Capital, LLC. By the end of 2020, we hope to have discovered and partnered with at least three additional pedigreed managers to broaden our suite of bespoke strategies. Only experienced managers with successful track records of actual investment experience will be invited onto the platform.
The team at LHA has been deeply involved in manager selection for years, including both performance and operational due diligence, along with the critical work of gap assessment. Before a strategy is invited onto the platform, the historic investment track record of the prospect is scrubbed and characterized so that a complete assessment of actual manager skill can be assessed. Strategy selection is framed by diversification, seeking to build a suite of well-differentiated strategies that can stand apart and complement the beta-rich components that make up the larger part of modern institutional and wealth management portfolios.
