About ?>


Worth Venture Partners (“Worth”) is a New York-based SEC-registered investment advisor providing alternative emerging manager solutions. We seek to provide differentiated sources of return and diversification within emerging managers that offer the potential for:

  • Outsized returns
  • A sustainable edge
  • Niche expertise

Limited partners in WVP vehicles are sophisticated investors and include family offices, high net worth individuals, fund of funds, and select institutions. Our team routinely meets with families and individuals to review tax-efficiency options for alternatives portfolios.

Worth, a WBE certified manager, was founded by Abby Flamholz and David Wertentheil in October 2012. Worth began offering emerging manager advisory services in December 2013 and the first WVP Emerging Manager Fund was launched in February 2014. The platform utilizes separately managed accounts that facilitate:

  • Daily sub-advisor oversight of risk management
  • Valuation
  • Counterparty efficiency
  • Treasury controls including daily cash management

Through the sourcing of uncommon emerging manager opportunities, Worth seeks to provide its clients with robust return and capital preservation opportunities. Our efforts are directed towards uncovering emerging managers with expertise in strategies that are not highly correlated to traditional asset classes and that can successfully navigate changing market dynamics.

We provide access to niche and opportunistic managers in the emerging stages of their firm’s growth and add a layer of daily institutional due diligence oversight to mitigate many of the operational risks inherent in the emerging manager investing landscape. Worth integrates, what we identify to be, talented managers into our institutional-quality infrastructure while maintaining only one layer of fees.
