SAN FRANCISCO, June 28, 2013 – Hall Capital Partners LLC, an independent investment advisor that manages multi-asset class investment portfolios and oversees approximately $25 billion in assets, including $10.4 billion in alternatives, received the “Outsourced CIO of the Year Award” at Institutional Investor magazine’s 11th Annual Hedge Fund Industry Awards held in New York City on June 27, 2013. Additionally, Rachel D. Kort, managing director and member of Hall Capital’s Portfolio Management practice, was honored as a Hedge Fund Rising Star by the publication. Award winners and honorees were selected by Institutional Investor’s editorial staff that reviewed criteria for each investment category and survey responses from selected pension funds, endowments, foundations and other institutional investors.

Hall Capital was recognized as the Outsourced CIO of the Year for its excellence in helping to craft and intelligently customize global multi-asset class investment programs for its institutional investor clients – on an outsourced basis – as well as demonstrating the ability to work with and explain complex hedge fund strategies to investment boards, according to the awards’ website.

Hall Capital serves as the Outsourced CIO for Drew University and Jeffrey S. Balog Associate Treasurer of Drew said: “Hall Capital has earned the respect of our board. Our trustees and donors rest easier with the knowledge that Hall Capital is overseeing our endowment. It is not often (if ever) in my 21 years of experience that I can without any hesitation recommend a firm. In the case of Hall, I recommend them without hesitation or any caveat.”

“We are extremely honored that the hedge fund industry has recognized Hall Capital for its leadership and excellence in the outsourced CIO category, which is the core of our firm’s business,” said Simon Krinsky, Managing Director and Director of Portfolio Management at Hall Capital. “We remain committed to delivering superior investment results, serving as long term strategic partners for our clients and building customized portfolios based on our bottoms-up research.”

Ms. Kort was one of 30 industry executives and investment professionals honored on Institutional Investor’s 2013 Hedge Fund Rising Stars list. Kort’s increasingly significant role in the hedge fund industry, demonstrated entrepreneurship, and proven ability to deliver in the field received high recognition from Hall Capital and industry peers as making a broad contribution to the hedge fund industry.

Kort joined Hall Capital in 2008 and was named partner last year. Before Hall Capital, she was an investment banker at Goldman Sachs in both London and New York, and she began her career with Salomon Smith Barney as an investment banking analyst.
