New York (HedgeCo.net) – New York hedge fund manager, Fund.com, Inc., has acquired a $1 billion hedge fund distributor based in West Palm Beach Fl., Weston Capital Management, LLC.

Weston Capital founder Albert Hallac continues as CEO of Weston Capital, directing its day-to-day operations and business strategy. In addition, Fund.com Chairman Joseph J. Bianco will become Chairman of Weston Capital. Weston Capital also has offices in London and New York City.
