Attollo Investment Advisors

Attollo is an Alternative Investments Company

About us

At Attollo we believe that Alternative Investments form an important part of the Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA) for institutional investors such as pension funds and insurance companies. We also believe that investing in alternatives can be sustainable and environmental, and with strong social values.

Our services

Attollo Investment Advisors (AIA) help institutional investors overcome the challenges of investing in esoteric asset classes like private equity, infrastructure debt/equity, direct lending and hedge funds. AIA assist in establishing a thorough framework for governance, risk management, due diligence and monitoring.

Working at Attollo

Attollo is a private company focused on growing our business through organic client acquisition. If you are an ambitious, entrepreneurial and experienced consultant or advisor to institutional investors, and have experience in manager due diligence and selection for alternative investments, we would like to hear from you.

Restructuring portfolios of underperforming funds

A portfolio of alternatives funds and managers requires maintenance. Attollo can assist in restructuring legacy portfolios, evaluate side-pockets and turn around underperforming investments. Following top-down analyses of the investment guidelines and original requirements, the portfolio can be rebuild from the ground up, diversified across regions, sectors and vintages. 

Due Diligence of investment managers

Developing a portfolio of strategies and finding the right funds and investors to manage those strategies, requires more than simply creating a short list of managers. Due diligence in private markets like Infrastructure or Private Equity and in esoteric strategies like hedge funds or insurance-linked, requires more than simplistic historical return analysis.

Ability to find deals and sourcing trading ideas, whether strategies are replicable, size and liquidity issues or alignment of interests are all import determinants of whether an investment manager is suitable for a portfolio. Equally important are Environmental, Social and Governance requirements.

Attollo philosophy

In a vacuum, a feather falls as fast as a brick. For an observer it would be easy to conclude that the feather and the brick might have the same weight, which we know, is the wrong conclusion.

In the post credit-crisis market rally a naive, passive barbell of stocks and long bonds can perform as well as a cleverly designed portfolio of diversified strategies and assets. The conclusion that a cheap strategy is as good as the later, is equally wrong.

It is our view that a carefully constructed portfolio of strategies can be cost-effective and efficient, and at the same time provide risk diversification and additional return to your portfolio.
