Investment Approach

Three core principles differentiate our approach as an asset manager:

Disciplined We believe markets are complex
Investors must employ a structured decision-making process to manage complex risk and reward trade-offs
Responsive We believe markets change
Investors must adapt to secular market changes
Risk Controlled We believe markets are inefficient but difficult to forecast
Investors must avoid costs and risks that are unlikely to pay off in the long-run
