Who is Maximum Alliance Group?

Connecting Private Wealth and Alternative Managers

Two sides of a well-minted coin

MAG introduces private wealth to quality alternative managers who can best help them achieve their investment goals. Simultaneously, we help alternative strategies raise capital through the private wealth networks and achieve sustained growth in assets under management. We accomplish these objectives by adhering at all times to our guiding principles.

Guiding Principles


We exercise due diligence in selecting the alternative managers we work with. We only introduce private wealth advisors to alternative managers who have been investigated and vetted, and with whom we personally invest.


MAG partners with alternative managers that earn greater fees when the investor earns a positive absolute return. MAG shares in these fees so that the investor, the alternative manager, and MAG are incentivized to deliver a positive return to the investor.

Who is our founder?

He earned a degree in business management at Binghamton University, where he worked as a teaching assistant at the School of Management and was selected to deliver the commencement address for his graduating class. He began his career in the financial sector at Bloomberg. For the past decade, his sophisticated understanding of the markets, his proven work ethic, and his passion for investing made him a leader in asset-raising efforts at Millburn Ridgefield and LoCorr Funds. He regards the ability to listen and the aptitude for understanding his clients’ needs as indispensable skills. In helping his clients achieve their goals, Jimmy puts his knowledge, expertise, and experience to work for them.

He is also an enthusiastic reader, skier, hiker, and world traveler.

Our Mission

MAG wants to be third.

First, MAG wants any investor to earn a solid return.
Second, MAG wants any investment professional who works with us to be overly satisfied.
Third, MAG only succeeds if the investor and investment professional are happy. We are third.

In our over communicated society, we believe actions speak louder than words. Most say the investor is first, but do they act upon it?

MAG aims to align with forward-thinking wealth advisors and family office professionals so that they can have the best understanding of the $5T+ alternative investment industry.

MAG aims to help alternative managers - with their best days ahead of them - raise awareness in the private wealth channel.
