Founded in 2004 and 100% employee-owned, we invest alongside our clients using a momentum-based investment process.
We offer carefully engineered portfolios designed to meet the precise needs of our clients. But what unites our strategies is our focus on maximizing risk-adjusted returns.
Our innovative strategies are rooted in fundamental change, sophisticated modelling, stress testing and forward thinking to maximize returns for each intended risk.
Our agile and sophisticated controls constantly test and retest our outlook and allocations (disrupting our assumptions).
Our founding portfolio managers believe in the same investment philosophy and rely on the same disciplined, consistent and repeatable momentum-based investment process when constructing and managing our clients’ portfolios.
