"The addition of Altegris will provide independent financial advisors an expanded set of offerings that are integral to serving the needs of their clients," says Gurinder Ahluwalia, president and chief executive of Genworth Financial Wealth Management.

"As a specialist with deep roots in designing and delivering alternative investment products, we are excited to introduce our capability and expertise to a broader group of financial advisors through GFWM," says Jon Sundt, president and chief executive of Altegris.
