Our Approach

We set a high bar for our clients' investments

We believe that our wealth of proprietary data combined with in-house expertise gives our clients a competitive advantage in manager selection, which is especially critical given the wide dispersion of returns between individual hedge funds.

Around the globe, our specialists are searching to find and invest in hedge fund managers that we believe offer a clear edge in generating sustainable alpha. Before our Hedge Fund Ratings Committee deems any fund suitable for our clients, our business risk management team evaluates the manager’s operations platform and processes to ensure they align with the manager’s investment strategy and products.

50 Years of Market Presence

You can benefit from improved fees and terms

With a large number of sophisticated clients, we’re able to use our market presence to negotiate favorable fees and terms with over 150 hedge fund managers. These fee reductions can directly impact your portfolio’s net return.

We can also help clients develop direct relationships with managers, many of whom we have worked with since the 1970s. We offer clients the opportunity to forge lasting relationships with these managers, as well as to build reputations as desirable investors.
