Essential to the success of any fund is the strength of its relationship with its broker. Demands vary over time but often include: the ability to access multiple markets in multiple asset classes; the provision of leading edge technology, capital introduction and on occasion financing. Brokers need to be able to maintain keen pricing and access market liquidity for their clients at times of market stress and to be able to tap into sources of liquidity outside of the usual venues.  At Apex we realize the value the right broker can add our clients and we have developed a broker network of different sized firms that provide Apex clients with unparalleled levels of service and a market edge.
