Open and honest discussion is the hallmark for the culture we have fostered. We utilize our expertise to collaborate and challenge each other to arrive at the best solutions. We strongly believe that decisions made as a group are better than those made individually.
We believe our willingness to out-hustle our competitors can result in discovering better managers, gaining differentiated insights, and building deeper manager relationships that ultimately results in better outcomes.
We hold ourselves to be accountable to our investors, fund managers, and to ourselves. We have integrity in our dealings and do what we say we are going to do. We understand that managing capital for our investors is a privilege, not a right, and we work hard to earn and keep our investors’ trust.
We hire exceptional individuals with deep investment experience who have a history of intellectual and professional achievement, curiosity and initiative in all areas of their careers and personal lives.
50 South Capital’s business dates back to 2000, when Northern Trust began providing hedge fund and private equity solutions. In June 2015, the business was rebranded into 50 South Capital Advisors, LLC. As a registered investment advisor and wholly-owned subsidiary of Northern Trust, clients benefit from the increased autonomy in strategy and investment management while leveraging the global resources of one of the world’s largest financial institutions.
50 South Capital was formed with the vision of building a team of experienced professionals while leveraging the network, reach and resources of a global asset management firm. We believe this positions us to generate attractive risk-adjusted performance and most importantly, to provide a boutique client experience that investors seek in a long-term partner. As of December 31, 2017, we have approximately $5.0 billion in assets under management and $1.9 billion in assets under advisement.
The core principles of our parent company Northern Trust – service, expertise, and integrity – continue to guide us as we grow our business.
