Hedge funds

Our holistic approach to constructing a hedge fund solution integrates rigorous manager research; extensive operations and market risk analytics; as well as active and disciplined portfolio management. Our goal is to exceed your expectations.

Why invest in hedge funds?

One of the main benefits of investing in hedge funds is to provide diversification at the total portfolio level. The return potential is another attractive characteristic. Studies show that adding uncorrelated assets to a portfolio reduces total portfolio risk and, therefore, may improve the risk-adjusted return of traditional portfolios.

We recognize the money we manage represents the hard work and savings of real people like you. Or, if you represent a non-profit organization, the money needs to be there in the long run to fulfill important missions. We understand what's at stake. That's why we work to deliver real, lasting value. And that's why we're committed to our purpose: improving financial security for people.
