What is Diffractive?

As the distribution partner to a highly select group of affiliate investment managers, we bring creative and impactful strategies to the market to address evolving client needs.
Whether it’s sustainability alpha, access to the illiquidity premium or offsetting equity volatility, the team at Diffractive are purposeful in delivering forward-thinking solutions.
We are the privately owned and operated asset management platform of 1251 Capital Group. As a young organization built by seasoned leaders with more than a half century of industry experience, we embrace the unique opportunity to create a multi-affiliate organization offering differentiated solutions, unencumbered by legacy.
Offering a multi-dimensional approach, we are not bound to any one strategy, investment style or asset class. Our affiliate partners’ investment strategies strike a balance between core portfolio holdings and non-traditional, specialized offerings.

1251 Asset Management Is Now Diffractive Managers Group
In 2021, 1251 Asset Management (rebranded to Diffractive Managers Group) was formed as the asset management platform company of 1251 Capital Group. Founded in 2018, 1251 Capital Group was established with permanent capital from a select group of high-net-worth investors. Prior to launching 1251 Capital, its senior executives spent a combined 55 years investing capital in the asset management industry on behalf of TA Associates and Natixis Global Asset Management.
In Diffractive Managers Group, the founders of 1251 Capital Group set out to operate actively different from other capital partners in the asset management sector. As a newly launched entity, we have the unique opportunity to reflect on and build for the needs of investors today and going forward – finding and funding solutions to meet clients evolving needs, rather than offering outdated strategies.
