With more than 10,000 alumni practicing in every state in the country, and several continents, Albany Law’s graduates serve as a vital community and resource for the law school and its students.

Horizon Asset Management seeks to provide clients with sustainable, consistent rates of return through the use of a value-oriented investment approach. The firm's portfolios are constructed to provide risk-averse compounding of wealth with emphasis on absolute return, rather than relative return. They offer separately managed accounts that target a variety of risk-reward scenarios. Horizon Asset Management's investment strategies are based on sound, long-term value analysis and include products ranging from fixed-income to equity and from customized portfolios to structured products. Their research seeks to identify companies that are in transition, either in actuality or in perception. Horizon Asset Management has particular expertise in the identification and analysis of companies that are undergoing or have undergone significant changes in capital structure and can no longer be evaluated by institutional analysts through traditional models.
