WHAT SETS OUR INVESTMENT OUTSOURCING APPROACH APART

Fundamentally Fiduciary Management.

Fiduciary management is what we do. The core focus of our global institutional investment business. We have been honing our craft for more than 40 years, a level of commitment unmatched by any other organisation. Every capability we have developed was solely designed to help our clients, people like you, reach their goals.

Public & private mastery

There is a world of opportunities well beyond those listed on public markets. Unlike other firms, we bring a mastery across both public and private assets leveraging our strategic partnerships and capabilities to ensure you have full access. As well as the technology to see how it all comes together with aggregated exposures and risks.

Team synergy

Any investment program is fundamentally a team effort. More important than the team's size is the team's cohesion, the investment experience, and the experience of working together. Our investment professionals bring 19+ years in the industry and average more than a decade working together.

Total portfolio intelligence

Knowing your exposure is the critical first step in any crisis. Yet, many competitors fall at the first hurdle, struggling to aggregate positions from multiple underlying managers. In contrast, we know how you are positioned, and so will you with complete transparency across your entire investment portfolio, from strategy-level to security-level, and with the capability to respond in real-time.
