Our investment philosophy is based on three core principles, built on decades of research and experience. By applying these principles, we seek to deliver sustainable, long-term value for our investors.

Fundamental Investing

We rely on sound economic theory and analysis to help us deliver long-term, repeatable results. 


Systematically Applied

A disciplined methodology underlies everything we do.  Our investment process, built over 20 years, is based on a continuous process of design, refine, test, repeat.  


Thoughtfully Designed

In portfolio construction, risk management and trading, we seek additional value for our clients. Using both qualitative and quantitative tools, we’re meticulous in every detail of the investment process.    



For 25 years, our goal has been to build portfolios that deliver active returns within a risk-controlled framework.  We apply our systematic approach across our strategies, catering to the widespread investment needs of our clients.
