Busara Advisors (“Busara”) is a minority-owned investment advisory firm established to meet institutional investors’ demands for customization of hedge fund portfolios, better transparency and more sophisticated risk management. In addition, where appropriate, we provide clients with an opportunity to fulfill mandates or interests in investing with a minority owned firm. We are dedicated to generating competitive returns while providing full transparency at the underlying position level to institutional clients such as public and private pension funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies and corporations.
We focus on hedge funds due to their long history of providing compelling risk adjusted returns and significant downside protection compared to long only strategies. In addition, we believe that the opportunity set for hedge funds remains strong in the current market environment. In particular, we focus on “emerging” hedge fund managers, including smaller, newer and minority and woman-owned firms.
Busara has created an institutional quality platform by establishing a long-term strategic agreement with VIDRIO Financial (http://www.vidrio.com). VIDRIO Financial provides Busara with a robust technology platform, in addition to a cost-effective outsourcing solution for many of Busara’s middle and back office functions. VIDRIO Financial and predecessor entities have over 15 years of experience in hedge funds.
