Meet Alps Advisors' New Chief

News summary by MFWire's editors

Fundsters keeping an eye on Alps Advisors may want to read the Denver Business Journal's profile of president Laton Spahr. Spahr took over the Denver-based SS&C subsidiary earlier this month, reporting to Mike Sleightholme, senior vice president and general manager of SS&C's DST arm.

Laton Spahr
SS&C Technologies
President, Alps Advisors
Spahr, an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School of Business and of the University of Wyoming, left OppenheimerFunds earlier this year after it was acquired by Invesco. He joined OpFunds in 2013 as a PM and most recently served as senior vice president and leader of OpFunds' value and income team. Before joining OpFunds, he was a PM with Columbia Management and he worked at Friess Associates.

The local paper's profile this week offers various tidbits about Spahr and his life, highlighting his early days as an analyst (he shied away from recommending semiconductor stocks at the top of the dotcom bubble, despite it being his sector), his post-OpFunds career worries (he considered becoming a delivery franchise owner with Amazon), and more. Spahr shares a lesson offered by his first boss.

"At my first job, I was talking to my boss, and I was like, 'You know, you could pay me a third of what you're paying me and I'd still do this," Spahr tells the Denver Business Journal. "And he said, 'Never, ever say that again.'"

Spahr also shares his vision for Alps Advisors, a mutual fund and ETF shop with more than $16.9 billion in AUM (as of September 30) that hires boutiques as subadvisors.

"We offer this infrastructure that allows these small firms that are getting swallowed up or broken apart by the consolidation of the trillion-dollar-plus asset managers to still take their craft to market in a low-cost way," Spahr tells the paper.
