Focus on Style
We focus on understanding a manager's style, his way to process and filter information, to analyze and source opportunities, what ultimately and uniquely differentiates his approach
An optimized style diversification is our way to achieve an extra level of capital preservation during market dislocations and panic driven sell-offs.
Our core assumption is that a truly diversified portfolio has to be persistently multidimensional by asset class, by investment strategy and, above all, by manager's investment style.
We believe that financial professionals have extensively studied the behavior of asset classes, one at a time and their interactions. We focus on the process leading to the creation of a successful investment strategy and the human aspects behind this process.
A manager performance can be decomposed by the contribution of each asset class where he is invested coupled with the manager's alpha, which is structurally linked to the manager investment style.
