Brett Horton Joins the Black Swan Partners

The Black Swan Partners LLC is pleased to announce that Brett Horton is joining its team as a Managing Partner. Black Swan is a boutique management consulting firm, helping its clients build sustainable risk, compliance and business continuity processes. Their advice is uniquely customized to each client’s needs and budget.

Brett is a San Francisco-based senior consultant with wide-ranging expertise in operational due diligence. Before joining Black Swan Partners, he led Mercer’s Operations & Controls Assessment service where he was responsible for business development, strategy, positioning, and execution of investment operational risk due diligence consulting solutions. Throughout his 30-year career, he has advised pension funds, investment managers, insurance companies, institutional investors, RIA’s, commodity trading advisors, and global corporations. 

Brett is an accomplished forensic economist with extensive experience serving as an expert witness on state and federal cases as well as international arbitrations. He studied economics at Brigham Young University where he was also a distinguished member of Omicron Delta Epsilon (National Economics Honors Society).

“Brett understands that effective operational due diligence is significantly enhanced when the practitioner understands the nuances of a fund manager’s operations and the otherwise hidden or opaque risks that an investor may otherwise simply miss with a checklist approach,” said William Brossman, Partner at Black Swan. "Brett brings tremendous depth and expertise that will help Black Swan expand our capabilities in helping both investors and fund managers identify and manage their operational risks."
