Why Gemini Alternative Funds?

Gemini Alt’s “open architecture” allows investors to create their own solution by giving them the ability to select a Prime Broker, FCM and Administrator and eliminates the conflict of interest of the “one-stop shop” by providing the flexibility for investors to choose who they work with and/or the ability to rely upon best-of-breed service providers. This is important because it manages the counter-party risk associated with having one institution servicing all aspects of the fund.

Manager Selection

Gemini Alt conducts due diligence on managers, both qualitative and quantitative, background checks are performed on principals and entities.

FCM Relationships

Gemini Alt performs a counter-party risk assessment on all clearing relationships. In addition, Gemini Alt negotiates favorable fee arrangements for its investors.

Structuring Arrangements

Gemini Alt works with banks to provide a cost-effective solution to an investors’ need for a structured product to access fund managers.
