JMP Group invests in Astor Investment Management


Harvest Capital Strategies, the asset management subsidiary of investment banking and alternative asset management firm JMP Group, has made a minority investment in Astor Investment Management, a Chicago-based registered investment advisor with USD1.9 billion of assets under management.

Astor’s approach to asset allocation is driven by macroeconomic theory, utilising a broad range of asset classes with low correlation to the broader market. The firm offers its products through a variety of channels, including mutual funds, separately managed accounts and universal managed accounts.
“We are very optimistic about our long-term partnership with the team at Astor,” says KC Lynch, president of Harvest Capital Strategies. “By combining economic analysis and dynamic ETF portfolio construction, Astor has helped its clients manage risk in various market environments for over a decade. This investment broadens our asset management platform and extends both firms’ product offerings and distribution capabilities.”
“We are proud to be partnering with Harvest Capital Strategies and JMP Group,” says Robert Stein (pictured), chief executive officer of Astor. “Our agreement gives Astor the latitude to develop new investment strategies and applications while also introducing our existing investment solutions to a much wider client base.”
