INDUSTRY VETERANS LAUNCH
NU PARADIGM INVESTMENT PARTNERS
Flexible Approach Enables Individually-Tailored Solutions with Emphasis on Efficiently Generating Alpha while Reducing Total Costs
BOSTON and NEW YORK – April 23, 2014 – Nu Paradigm Investment Partners, LLC , a new investment firm created as an alternative to the current landscape of “oCIO” providers, was launched today by investment industry veterans Chris DeMeo and Russell O’Brien. The two build on more than 50 years of combined experience to create a firm structured to address common industry complaints, and better help clients achieve the success that they and their beneficiaries deserve.
“Volatile markets, fiduciary concerns and limited internal resources are driving investors to seek better implementation, but providers in the market struggle to meet this challenge due to their complex internal structures, restrictive business models and outdated products,” said DeMeo most recently Head of Investment, Americas at Towers Watson. “Investors have learned that outsourcing is not a panacea when it delivers generic solutions without respect to the client’s specific culture and needs. Nu Paradigm changes that.”
Distinct in the marketplace, Nu Paradigm employs a nimble, flexible approach that ensures timely implementation and adaptability to changing markets without constraints or preconceived notions on how to best solve clients’ problems. This flexibility enables engagements ranging from strategic advice, to implementation for certain asset classes, to full portfolio outsourcing. The approach makes it possible for Nu Paradigm to focus on each client’s toughest challenges—the areas where the firm can have the greatest impact—regardless of asset size or investor type.
“Our approach, combined with our ability to source proven managers, ensures strategic alignment and allows us to deliver an individually-tailored solution, every time,” said O’Brien, most recently Senior Director at FLAG Capital Management. . “We look beyond obvious answers to bring creative solutions and new investment opportunities that efficiently deliver sustainable alpha while lowering and controlling portfolio costs, improving risk management, and enhancing diversification.”
Nu Paradigm clients stand to benefit from the Partners’ global, multifaceted experience in capital markets and investment management including both traditional and alternative investments. They have provided investment counsel and portfolio implementation to corporate and public retirement plans, family offices, endowments, foundations, insurance companies and RIAs with assets ranging from $10 million to $50 billion, including Fortune 500 companies.
