Effectively managing wealth requires technical knowledge of global and domestic markets, macro and micro economics, as well as the ability to create a diverse portfolio of investments. As highly credentialed professionals, we base our investment strategies on extensive research and market knowledge.


Our systematic approach to making investment decisions uses mathematical or statistical models to evaluate data on the fundamental value, risk, liquidity and momentum of thousands of individual securities, entire asset classes and countries.

Benchmarked Excellence

As a privately owned Independent advisory firm, our clients can have a personal one-on-one relationship with their portfolio manager. Yet they also benefit from our employment of disciplines similar to some of the largest endowments and pension funds in the world.
