Alternative Fund Advisors (AFA) was established in 2020 by Marco Hanig and Mike Jancosek, a pair of seasoned executives who draw on their combined experience in building and managing successful alternative and traditional fund businesses for premier financial institutions.
Over the course of their careers, they became acutely aware of the challenges fiduciary advisors face in sourcing private investments for clients in a practical and convenient manner. To satisfy this unmet market need, they launched AFA with the purpose of offering innovative private investment solutions for registered investment advisors, family offices, and wealth advisors at private banks.
