Risk Has Been Redefined

What concerns you concerns us. And when it comes to risk, investors like you truly care not just about volatile market swings but also about "drawdown"—the potential peak-to-trough change in portfolio values over a fixed, long-term period.
The chart below shows how a portfolio with a typical level of volatility could experience an outsized, unexpected loss of capital. Oversized drawdowns may keep investors from achieving their objectives.



Here's how we try to mitigate drawdown

  • We have developed an approach to drawdown we believe to be differentiated and, in certain ways, new in the industry
  • Drawdown analysis is applied at every stage of our risk-focused investment process
  • Our portfolios are optimized to try and reduce the potential for capital loss while providing opportunities for better risk-adjusted performance
