Press release: Boutique Manager of International Stock-Picking Strategies Launches Marketing Effort

Former Ashmore Equities portfolio manager retains Havener Capital Partners 

[McLean, VA] – Investment management boutique AZTLAN Equity Management, LLC (“AZTLAN”) and third-party sales and marketing agency Havener Capital Partners (“Havener”) are excited to announce a marketing partnership.  

AZTLAN was founded in 2016 by Alejandro H. Garza, a 27-year veteran of investment management and finance and former global equity analyst, portfolio manager, and director of equity research at Ashmore Equities US LLC. Believing there is a better way to approach global and international investing, Alejandro launched AZTLAN and developed a proprietary rules-based investment approach that combines quantitative analysis and fundamental analysis in concentrated stock-selection strategies. 

With a diverse background that includes formal training as an artist and a degree in chemical engineering, Alejandro has the unique ability to bridge the realms of art and science. Under his leadership, AZTLAN has found success in merging analytical and creative thinking to develop innovative investment solutions tailored to the needs of family offices and advisors. 

Also unique to AZTLAN is an investment team comprised of individuals who not only speak the languages native to the regions they specialize in but are also attuned to the cultures in those regions, enabling them to adeptly maneuver through markets and geographies that often challenge other investment managers. In turn, AZTLAN’s stock-pickers believe they are uniquely equipped to identify cash flow generating international small- and mid-cap equities poised for growth. 

“We have a strong track record, a unique investment process, and a strategy in an underrepresented area of the market,” said Garza. “With the marketing expertise of Havener Capital, which also has a strong track record, we’re excited to tell our story more broadly.”  

Havener brings a wealth of experience and talent to help AZTLAN with branding, storytelling, and modern digital marketing. Founder and CEO Stacy Havener believes the partnership represents an exciting opportunity for both organizations and aligns with Havener’s mission of connecting differentiated boutiques with the early-adopter RIA community that embraces them:

"AZTLAN’s unconventional approach to international investing deserves a spotlight,” said Havener. “By joining forces with Alejandro and his team, we aim to showcase the firm’s distinct investment process and support AZTLAN in its growth journey.”
