Why Hatteras?

Hatteras Investment Partners strongly believes that Financial Advisors – an RIA, a family office, or an institutional investment consulting firm – play a critical role in growing and preserving investors’ wealth.

While alternatives like hedge funds, private equity and fund-of-funds were widely available, to mirror the university endowment model, we had to construct an efficient, highly diversified portfolio that included private equity.

Our single mission is to strengthen the relationship between the Advisor and the Investor through performance-focused private investment solutions designed to help build more robust and resilient portfolios.

Bringing this solution to our Advisors and their clients meant simplifying and streamlining the process—removing the barriers to entry and focusing on the solution, not just the product.
