Anthony Scaramucci/SkyBridge Capital: Fund of funds & seeder, finding the next Ray Dalio, Daniel Och

Anthony Scaramucci is Founder and Managing Partner of SkyBridge Capital, an alternative asset manager with approximately .46 billion in assets under management or advisory as of September 30, 2011. SkyBridge was launched in 2005 to be an incubator to growing hedge fund businesses, seeding the best global talent, but expanded its range of services and products with the 2010 acquisition of Citigroup Alternative Investment – Hedge Fund Management Group. The acquisition expanded the SkyBridge range of product offerings, particularly in the fund of funds space. In this Opalesque.TV interview, Anthony describes his motivations for SkyBridge’s evolution from seeder to integrated asset manager with a dual fund of funds/seeding model. Along with a collection of well-established managers in the fund of funds platform, Anthony talks about the need to maintain a “venture capital approach” in seeding the best talent in emerging managers, trying to find the “next Ray Dalio or Dan Och”. SkyBridge’s strategic partnership in 2008 with Challenger Financial Services Group was integral in this search, creating the first global institutional emerging manager seeding platforms.
