Astor Group’s Seth Zalkin: “It’s really never the horse – it’s the jockey”

When Seth Zalkin co-founded Astor Group in 2004, he wasn’t looking to build a giant multinational corporation or take over the world. After a career peppered with entrepreneurship, corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and venture capital, Zalkin found that, simply put, he liked growing companies and set out on a venture to do just that. A year later, in 2005, he picked up another line of business – investing – and created a separate entity, Astor Capital.
