Led by co-founder and senior portfolio manager Ryan McCarthy, who spent nine years helping build Aurora Resurgence, Aurora Capital Group’s value-oriented private equity fund, as a founding member, partner, and member of the investment committee, over eight years at Alvarez & Marsal, most recently as senior director, Highview is backed by Karlin Asset Management, an investment company founded in 2005 that manages over $1.5 billion in capital.
