Through research, technology, know-how and experience we fuse Macro, Micro and Relative Value into one profitable process that has outperformed global Macro peers since inception.

We recognise excellence as a daily recurring phenomena which is constructed by excellent habits (discipline) and enforced by success and is hence consistently achievable. A single-minded pursuit of one’s endeavours is what brings resolution to the most complex problems and enables progress each year, each day.

We are in partnership with our clients as we try to understand their entire portfolio constructions and explore the fit of our strategies within their asset allocations. Our incentive models and interests are fully aligned and we grant access to our thinking at every step. In fact over time we are proud to call our clients friends.
