Virtual Business Model
Patton Funds is not an ivory tower, it’s in the cloud. It’s an innovative virtual business model taking advantage of digital interfaces to improve our efficiency and maintain our laser focus on our investment model and client service.
Our virtual business model allows it to be run from anywhere delivering better outcomes to our clients.
Outsourced Non-Core Functions
We have multiple partners across the globe whom we have outsource nearly all non-core functions to and digitally interfaced with creating tremendous operational efficiencies. We have tapped into world class experts in each business area allowing us to focus on investing and our clients.
We invest our clients’ money on their behalf with independent custodians—this is their money, not ours. We share as much real-time information and supply as many analytic tools as possible so that clients can observe and evaluate performance.
Redundancy, Stability, and Accountability
Outsourcing non-core functions to business partners results in redundancy and accountability in every business function. No business function is dependent on any one person but instead on a company resulting in improved operational stability.
Control and accountability are critical for investment firms. We manage the business so our founder is always intimately familiar with – and accountable for - every aspect and every client. We do not grow beyond that.
Safety and Security
Every non-core function has multiple points of checks and balances by entirely unrelated parties resulting in arguably a higher level of security than would be had if all functions were done internally

Patton Fund Management was founded by Mark Patton in 1992. The company initially offered portfolio management services to both high net worth individual investors and a select group of institutions. In the early 2000’s, the company expanded into the retirement plan business so that it could deliver the same investment expertise and outcomes to retirement plan participants.
