Using both long and short positions in companies across industries, sectors, and geographies, our market neutral strategies are designed to deliver consistent absolute returns with moderate volatility and low correlation to broad equity and fixed income markets.
Absolute return focus
Emphasis on consistency of returns with moderate downside risk.
Returns are driven by relative attractiveness
Long positions are expected to outperform short positions.
Low correlation to other asset classes
Portfolios are constructed to have limited exposure to broad market factors.
Portfolio of stocks expected to outperform
Portfolio of stocks expected to underperform
Score companies based on desirable characteristics that we refer to as alpha factors.
Our goal is to add value through a large number of small positive contributions, rather than through the effect of a few large winners.
Our process is designed to assemble an optimal portfolio of long positions in companies with a more attractive exposure to alpha factors than securities we sell short, subject to risk constraints.
