Kettera Strategies LLC and its Hydra marketplace announced three new additions to its lineup: ADG Capital, AE Capital and Deep Field Capital.

This news follows the announcement that Quantitative Investment Management’s (QIM) Global Program joined Hydra earlier this year, bringing the total number of investment programs on Hydra to 40, Kettera said in a statement. QIM was founded in 2003 by Jaffray Woodriff and manages more than $2.4 billion in its Global Program, QIM’s flagship strategy.                                                     

“Allocators, investors and managers are finding real value by coming together on Hydra,” said Jon Stein, CEO of Hydra’s operator, Chicago-based Kettera Strategies. “One thing that distinguishes us in addition to managers that are strong veterans, is that we focus globally on strategies that are unique and diversifying. The addition of ADG, AE and Deep Field to Hydra underscores this strength.”
