Cross Island Advisors is a Registered Investment Advisor established in 2018 by Amit Chokshi as a spin-off of Doshi Capital Partners, the family office of Drs. Nitin & Leena Doshi, founders of Doshi Diagnostic Imaging. Amit has managed investments under Cross Island’s strategy since 2006 while Cross Island’s Chairman – Dr Nitin Doshi – has seeded several successful alternative asset management firms across real estate, private equity, and hedge funds.
Cross Island utilizes a bottoms-up, fundamental, and qualitative research process to construct a concentrated portfolio of approximately 15 companies experiencing transformations associated with dramatic capital structures improvements, rapid cash flow growth, and expanding network effects that are undervalued by market participants with the expectation that they will achieve exceptional rates of return over a 3-5 year time period.
Cross Island’s approach is unconstrained by market capitalization or geography, limits asset inflows to optimize investor returns, and offers its strategy exclusively in Separately Managed Accounts (“SMAs”) to provide investors with greater transparency.
