We Have a Disciplined Approach to Investing

We are dedicated to rigorous research and maintaining state-of-the-art technology to aid investment decisions. We believe an investment edge comes from marrying quantitative tools with experienced market practitioners.

We Invest Based on Macro Themes

We specialize in identifying trends across different asset classes and geographies so we can tactically shift capital to markets with attractive opportunities.

We Have Industry-Leading Infrastructure

We have established a high-quality operational platform, including robust daily trade processing. We are committed to people, processes, technology and service providers that can increase operational integrity and reduce client risk.
