Boutique Investment Management Strategies
Targeted to clients who are sophisticated, sensitive to risk, and in search of creative solutions.
- Risk management focused
- Sound principles / Disciplined processes
Three Dimensional Portfolio Construction
Modern approaches to portfolio construction, where skillfully applied, can produce effective results. However, most operate in only two dimensions:
- Targeting of relative risk
- Asset class diversification
Our approach brings a new and potentially powerful third dimension:
- Style diversification – which adds a valuable new layer to portfolio diversification and expands the opportunities for growth.
The various strategies are implemented by managers using distinctly different approaches to their craft. As examples, there are strategies built upon:
- Rigorous fundamental analysis of equities and/or debt
- Principles-based tactical allocation
- Disciplined quantitative processes:
- Some driven by emerging price trends and related market data
- Others driven by proprietary sets of valuation metrics
By carefully blending strategies in a manner suitable for the goals of each investor, we have the ability to develop customized solutions.
