The Young New York Foundation is a platform that connects young professionals and exceptional charitable projects in New York. They raise funds and source volunteers for a number of charities that focus exclusively on New Yorkers and the development of their communities.
This March, we are proud to present Protégé Partners as ACE’s Business of the Month. Protégé is the lead sponsor for the YNY Foundation’s 2011 Winter Benefit, with all proceeds going to support Project Comeback and Project Stay.
Founded in 2002 by Jeffrey Tarrant and Ted Seides, Protégé Partners is a fund of hedge funds that focuses on small and specialized hedge fund managers. Protégé has its headquarters in New York City, a research office in Singapore, and employs 41 professionals. Assets are managed on behalf of pensions, sovereign wealth plans, foundations, endowments and high net worth individuals.
In addition to building one of the elite boutique hedge fund firms in the city, Protégé is also deeply committed to strengthening local neighborhoods and investing in New York. ACE is so grateful for Protégé’s partnership over the past six years, as their support has enabled us to help homeless men and women achieve economic self-sufficiency.
