People talk about the end of hedge funds, that hedge funds are dying. They’re not. But the old model of the hedge fund business — people give you money, pay you fees, and you give them returns — that is dead.” — Steve Drobny CEO, Clocktower Group

our story

Steve Drobny launched Clocktower Group in 2007 as a funds-of-funds business granting institutional investors access to innovative asset managers. In the decade since, Clocktower Group has expanded its reach and brought together a diverse team of professionals with broad experience across the alternatives space. Our business now extends from hedge fund seeding and advisory services to financial technology venture capital.

We launched our first hedge fund manager in 2014 and our venture capital arm, Clocktower Technology Ventures, in 2015. In 2018, we opened an office in Shanghai, expanding our on-the-ground presence in China. And we continue to provide hedge fund and asset allocation services to select institutional clients. In all we do, we use our unique macro perspective to deliver value to our investors, clients, seed managers, and portfolio companies.
