Investment Philosophy and Process
Factor Models

A systematic framework using a mix of fundamental and market-based factors may successfully identify market mis-pricings and capture available risk premia over time.

Asset Class Expertise

A fundamental understanding of the drivers of returns determines the most suitable set of factors for each asset class.

Allocate By Risk Budget

A disciplined risk budgeting approach to portfolio construction allocates to individual diversifying return drivers to maximize risk adjusted returns with low exposure to traditional asset class risk.

Customizable Implementation

The modular approach allows for transparent and flexible portfolio solutions incorporating both absolute and total return elements.
