Altytude Advisors (a division of Glide Capital) is a Registered Investment Advisor.

Altytude offers strategic redeployment, by leveraging its platform of pre-vetted private debt funds in which it currently has over $300 million under management from institutional investors.  For more information visit

What is it?

4 years ago, Glide built and launched a platform of pre-vetted (including independent due diligence) private debt funds, to meet a need in the marketplace for private investors to be able to more easily view and evaluate these funds.  The company has since grown to $325 million in assets under management from high net worth and institutional investors. Altytude was created under Glide to focus on matching EB-5 redeployment needs with relevant funds on our platform, specifically in the areas of real estate lending or business lending.   

We Talked to the EB-5 Legal Community First

We initially did some market sounding in October of last year at the AILA/ IIUSA event in Chicago, and started by presenting what we were planning on doing to the EB-5 legal community, in order to gather initial thoughts and feedback and to align what we’re doing as closely as possible with industry needs, based on what we know.  Having received generally enthusiastic responses, we are now making our approach to regional centers and NCEs.

Our Platform can Help Make Redeployment Simpler

  • Compliance with policy and fiduciary obligations
  • Reducing investor resistance
  • Capital preservation
  • Generating reasonable returns for reasonable risk benefiting all stakeholders
  • Balancing legal compliance with risk mitigation strategies

Final Word

Some of the key benefits that Altytude brings to the table:

  • 3 levels of due diligence (in addition to your own): Fund managers do due diligence on their borrowers, we do diligence on the fund and before they come on to our platform, we commission due diligence from an independent firm.
  • Fiduciary duty: We are an SEC registered investment advisory firm.
  • EB-5 understanding: We first presented our solution and discussed market needs with many leading EB-5 attorneys. 
  • Legal efficiency: We have established a legal paradigm that helps to keep investment associated legal needs to minimum.
  • Horizon matching: We try to match liquidity needs as closely as possible.
  • Coordinating funds administration is part of the service offering.
  • Historical performance: Don’t take our word for it; we’d like to show you how the funds on our platform have performed.
