Hedge Fund Revamps Image, Hires Professional Surfer

Nov 04, 2013

Topturn Capital has teamed up with a professional surfer to market the California-based hedge fund firm.

Topturn announced in a statement Friday that the hiring of Joe Curren, whom the firm referred to as “The Trojan Horse” of its investment strategy, will help the hedge fund “take advantage of the Securities and Exchange’s ratification  of the JOBS Act and set new precedency in marketing.”

The JOBS Act, which took effect in September, lifts the longstanding rule that bans hedge funds from soliciting or advertising to the general public.

In surfing, a “top turn” refers to a surfer’s ability to reposition himself back into the momentum of moving water, which parallels with the firm’s approach to asset management.

Founded by Dan Darchuck and Greg Stewart have, Topturn manages approximately $$100 million in assets.
