July 20, 2017 –  Ackerman Capital Management LP is pleased to announce that we have been recognized again this year as a Top Adviser in the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers 2017 edition (FT300). 

In 2017, independent RIA firms across 37 states and Washington, D.C. were selected for the FT300, including our investment advisory services that are offered through Ackerman Capital Management LP, a registered investment adviser.  The 300 awarded firms from this year’s list represented an impressive cohort of 300 elite RIAs with a combined average practice existence of 24 years and asset under management of $2.7 billion.  

RIA practices were graded on six factors: assets under management (AUM); AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records (The quality of services provided to clients is not evaluated and the award is not indicative of the practice’s future performance.)

RIA firms across the U.S. apply to be evaluated for the award and there are no fees or other considerations required to do so, however, the RIA must meet a minimum set of criteria to be eligible for submission. This is the fourth annual FT300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry.

The Passing of Edward M. Ackerman

Edward Meyer Ackerman
July 23, 1928 - October 1, 2016

 

Edward M. Ackerman, born July 23, 1928, in Dallas, TX, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, October 1, 2016, surrounded by his family. He is predeceased by his wife Helma Ackerman and is survived by his children Paula Ackerman Menendez (Douglas), David Ackerman (Caroline), Samantha Ackerman Simons, and Eddie Ackerman (Beth); his grandchildren Phillip, Emma and Lilly Simons, Reid and Owen Ackerman, and Sam and Sarah Menendez; and his niece Vicki Berler Pepper (Ken).

Ed was a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School and the University of Texas. He served as a lieutenant in the Air Force, stationed in Japan during the Korean War. Following his service, he did post-graduate study in finance at New York University before joining Salomon Brothers, and later returning to Dallas as their regional manager. Ed founded Ackerman Associates, L.P., Dallas' first hedge fund, in 1969 and compiled an impressive track record of investment success until his retirement in 2007. He is also the founder of Ackerman Capital Management, an investment advisory firm that continues to thrive today.

As a philanthropist, Ed had a significant impact throughout the Dallas community. Much of his time and resources were dedicated to The Hockaday School, St. Mark's School of Texas, the UT Southwestern Medical Foundation, Temple Emanu-El, the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, the Dallas Holocaust Museum, Hebrew Union College, and the Society for Classical Reform Judaism. He is remembered for his warmth, wisdom, humility, generosity, and as the loving patriarch of his family, which he considered his greatest legacy.

A memorial service will be held at Temple Emanu-El on Wednesday, October 5 at 11:30 am in Olan Sanctuary, with a reception immediately following. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to one of the organizations listed above.
