Our Services

Private Clients

We offer portfolio management solutions to Private Clients that seek an investment manager, rather than a product salesman

 

We build core public market portfolios that are designed to be held for the long run. We  tailor these portfolios with client-specific features such as currency hedging or downside protection, invariably at a lower cost than public retail funds

More

Family Offices

We provide a range of alpha and  active beta strategies in  separate account or pooled form to complement traditional long-only strategies, or to act as an overlay

 

We also work with leading Family Offices in advising on macro processes, particularly asset allocation-based strategies

More

Institutions

Two principles underpin our  Long Horizon investment process: changing investor risk aversion is the principal driver of asset prices and structural asset pricing relations are strongest at long horizons

 

This low-turnover, finance-based strategy can be a stand alone source of alpha or utilised as complimentary to traditional economic-based strategies

Advisors

We work with leading Financial Advisors to provide customised portfolios for their Clients

 

Typically, our Advisor Partners are  looking for investment solutions to differentiate their practices. By engaging a specialist investment manager,  Advisors get the benefit of tailored solutions for their Clients, without having an inhouse investment team

A property developer's approach to policy

Stephen Fisher - Sunday, November 13, 2016

There is an old joke about the guy who dies and has a choice between heaven and hell. He first visits heaven and sees a bunch of bored people being good. Hell, on the other hand, is a party atmosphere - bars, dancing, action.  So he chooses hell.  But when he turns up, its all fire and brimstone - no party.  So he asks the Devil what happened? "That was the sales process, this is reality" Full Post

'Owners of stocks too often let the capricious and often irrational behavior of their fellow owners cause them to behave irrationally as well. Because there is so much chatter about markets, the economy, interest rates, price behavior of stocks etc., some investors believe that it is important to listen to pundits - and, worse yet, important to consider acting upon their comments

 

Those people who can sit quietly for decades when they own a farm or apartment house too often become frenetic when they are exposed to a stream of stock quotations and accompanying commentators delivering an implied message of "Don't just sit there, do something."'
