A Relentless Pursuit of Better Investment Ideas.℠ It is a philosophy that extends well beyond the confines of modern portfolio theory. An approach to an investment process that is disciplined and emphasize fundamental bottom-up research, steeped in quantitative analysis. Risk Management is at the core of this investment philosophy, a detailed look at exposures, value at risk, sector, and macro-economic trends. An investment firm was created out of this approach. An investment firm unique for its culture that is reminiscent of the Wall Street meritocracy of the old Salomon Brothers culture. And where every aspect of our business is transparent, a commitment to core values forms the basis for the firm’s existence, an existence deeply rooted in entrepreneurship. An investment firm with a genuine commitment to diversity while attracting the brightest and most experienced professionals, a core tenet of inclusion provides for an idea rich environment. While there are certainly easier ways to build an investment management firm, pursuing better investment ideas is the only way we understand, in creating value for, and lasting relationships with, our investors.
