Our Name

The name BERYL comes from the Greek word beryllos, which refers to a precious blue-green color-of-sea-water stone.  Colored gemstones are graded using the four Cs of Connoisseurship; Color, Cut, Clarity and Crystal. The last C, crystal, denotes transparency. For example, a fine Emerald which belongs to the Beryl family of gemstones must possess a high degree of transparency to be considered a top gem.

THE BERYL CONSULTING GROUP LLC was founded on the basis of a highly transparent hedge fund due diligence process, which consists of: (1) Qualitative Investment Analysis; (2) Quantitative Performance Analysis and (3) full Operational Evaluation. BERYL looks for consistency across all three areas. We believe when it comes to manager selection, investors cannot afford to take any shortcuts. We are on a constant mission to discover top gem managers. We have  identified a number of best performing managers while avoiding a far greater number of disappointments.
