Investment Strategies

Innovative Diversification

We apply a strategic asset allocation approach that synthesizes long-term expected asset class returns, risks, and correlations to identify optimal allocations between various asset classes.

Disruptive Innovation Investing

We recognize that “disruptive innovation” is transforming the world and we are only in the early stages of the 4th industrial revolution. Over the next 10 years we believe that new industries and the next generation of mega-cap companies will emerge at a startling pace. Our disruptive innovation investing overlay will deliver comprehensive exposure to emerging technologies such as autonomous transportation, AI, DNA sequencing, gene editing, next-generation internet, and more.

Environment, Social, and Corporate Governance Investing

ESG is a three-factor method to determine a company’s sustainability and societal impact. In addition to aligning your views with your investment, we believe that in the long-term ESG criteria can potentially out-perform the market and reduce risks. Our ESG overlay seeks to invest with companies that exhibit positive ESG characteristics and long-term sustainability in the hopes of future performance.

Socially Responsible Investing

SRI is investing with the objective of targeting companies that are considered to have positive social impacts through their business practices and/or service. Although similar to ESG, SRI conceptually differs by prioritizing impact whereas ESG measures a company’s ability to perform better as a result of their social consciousness. Our SRI overlay enables investors to strive for positive impacts with their investments.

Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance

 CPPI consists of actively allocating between volatile assets and safe assets based on a pre-defined risk budget, typically specified as a protected asset level or floor value. The percentage allocated to each depends on the “cushion” value, defined as current portfolio value minus floor value, and a multiplier coefficient, where a higher number denotes a more aggressive strategy.

Tail Risk Hedging

TRH uses options to protect against strong equity market declines, beyond what typical portfolio diversification and CPPI can provide. Our TRH strategy utilizes a pre-determined target risk budget for each client to purchase protective optoins based on the portfolio’s risk exposure.
