Stacy Havener has a made a career raising $8B+ for new/undiscovered funds that led to $30B+ in follow-on AUM. Prior to finding her niche in raising capital, she was an award-winning writer who dreamed of becoming a literature professor. Ironically, her love of words is one of the secrets to her success in an industry dominated by numbers. Growing up the only girl on all-boy soccer teams, it’s no surprise she’s now a female entrepreneur in one of the toughest “boys clubs.”

At the heart of it all, there is one thing Stacy believes in – underdogs. Stacy is the Founder/CEO at Havener Capital Partners, a sales and marketing agency that helps boutique asset managers build, launch and grow funds. Havener Capital is on a mission to level the playing field in asset management by raising $100B for boutiques over the next decade.

Stacy holds her Series 6, 7, 24, 63, 66, and 79 licenses and is a registered representative of Compass Securities Corporation. She received her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Western Connecticut State University, graduating summa cum laude in 1998. That same year, Stacy was named to both the NCAA and the GTE/CoSida Academic All-American teams for Division III Women’s Soccer and subsequently nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year.

Based in Newport, RI, Stacy often spends her mornings walking the beach, sipping a Dunkin’ coffee, and listening to 90’s hip hop.

Motto: "Actually, we can."
