David Perkins, founder of Hatteras Funds, has resumed the role of chief executive following the departure of Brian Jacobs in February. Jacobs is now self employed as a consultant.

According to the firm, the move was made “to reaffirm our commitment and focus on providing financial advisors and their clients with alternative investment solutions across the liquidity spectrum.”

“As founder and chairman, David has overseen the strategic vision of the firm since its inception in 2003,” it said.
