Our Investment approach

In today's environment of slow economic growth and low inflation, investors are struggling to make ends meet - to generate returns meeting liabilities and other objectives. Slow growth leads to low expected equity returns and low inflation expectations translate into low bond yields. Pension plans plagued by perennial underfunded status are continuing to lower their expected rates of return in response. 

The problem with traditional strategies closely aligned with broad market indices is that they inherit a set of characteristics that are not always aligned with client needs. They have a heavy skew towards duration. They only include a small portion of investable securities. They give up potential for diversification as well as return potential. 

We believe unconstrained strategies - strategies not tied to a benchmark - are valuable complements to traditional strategies for investors to reach their objectives. In its basic form, unconstrained investing allows an investor to allocate capital based on an independent assessment of value and risk rather than the issuance patterns of the major constituents of the indices. Unconstrained strategies allow us to provide exposures more aligned with clients' needs, to uncover more value and provide more diversification.

Trading leveraged products such as forex, commodities and CFDs carry a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all. Prior to trading the foreign exchange, commodity or CFD markets, you should consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. You should never invest more than you can afford to lose. If you fail to understand this or you are uncertain of the risks involved, please seek independent advice.
