Federal Way Becomes Aptitude Investment Management

12 Apr, 2017

Federal Way Asset Management LP, an investment management firm offering both alternatives management and fiduciary management services with approximately $5.6 billion in assets, including $3.7 billion on a discretionary basis, today announced that it has changed its name to Aptitude Investment Management LP (“Aptitude” or the “Firm”). In connection with the renaming, the Firm has launched a new website, www.aptitudeinvest.com

“Since becoming an independent firm five years ago, we have sought to provide our clients with deep alternatives investing expertise and intelligent solutions in order to generate superior, long-term, risk-adjusted returns,” said Jeffrey Klein, Chief Executive Officer of Aptitude. 

“Our new name, Aptitude, reflects the talent and skills that we seek in the managers in which we invest, strengthening our ongoing commitment to raising the bar for what a global investment boutique can be.  We look forward to leveraging the long institutional legacy of our founding principals – nearly 20 years in the making – to source and access managers whom we believe have a significant edge in investing and aptitude,” Klein added.

Aptitude has relocated its U.S. office from its roots in Federal Way to downtown Seattle, located at 925 Fourth Avenue, Suite 3550, Seattle, WA 98104.
