CrystalPoint Partners is a private investment firm, specializing in esoteric, special situations, and alternative investments.
Since the broad advent of “alternative investments” in the form of venture capital, private equity, and hedge funds in the 1980s, the sector has undergone a large-scale process of institutionalization. This institutionalization has effectively transformed the field of alternative investment, as it is practiced today, into a near-conventional investment style in terms of risk exposure and, consequently lowered the potential for reward.
CrystalPoint Partners focuses on investments that sit outside the typical comfort zone of mainstream alternative asset managers. CrystalPoint believes that these investments do not sit outside this comfort zone uniquely due to higher risk, but due to the higher barrier to entry in terms of resources required to understand and manage these specific risks.
