Our differentiated approach:
We identify specialist managers that we believe are the very best at delivering attractive diversifying sources of return or alpha. Once we've found these talented managers, we isolate their specific skill and extract that return potential to ensure we're delivering real value to our clients.
Ideas and innovation
If the alpha is there, we access it via our own bespoke investment vehicles at attractive terms, but we also closely scrutinise those returns which could provide alternative forms of beta – attractive returns, worth owning but which can be systematised and therefore accessed in a much more cost-effective way. By de-bundling a manager's true skill and return potential in this way, we seek to ensure clients only pay for real value – not expensive hedge fund vehicles delivering mediocre results.
Value for money
In a notoriously expensive industry, we engage with hedge fund managers and use our bargaining power to achieve competitive fees and terms. We ensure our clients are amply diversified, getting value for their money.
Time and expertise
By delegating investment selection decisions, our solution helps investors balance diversity, complexity and governance while offering greater transparency on true costs and underlying exposures.
