We believe that asset managers, particularly in this environment, will increasingly seek out boutique firms with expertise in providing prime brokerage and where prime brokerage is the core of the business. Fred understands this environment, the nuances of what each client demands, and the importance of delivering client service, which lies at the heart of what we do."
