50 South Capital is a global boutique alternatives firm that provides unique, differentiated access to the world's best private equity and hedge fund investment opportunities. 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, Northern Trust. 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, 2019, we have $6.4 billion in assets under management and $3 billion in assets under advisement.
