How We Invest

We invest using a renowned investing methodology adapted to the practical reality of modern markets. Our investment strategy has been tested and refined over many years of investing and trading in the market.

A Nobel price winning methodology…

In 1952, Nobel prize winner Harry Markowitz invented portfolio optimization. His genius was in identifying that we can use mathematical and statistical tools to create an “optimal” portfolio for each investor– e.g. the portfolio that gives the maximum return for your desired level of risks.

Markowitz’s Modern Portfolio Theory was groundbreaking, but based on some simplifications that limited its practical use in financial markets. Under this theory, very bad events in the markets should be extremely rare. Unfortunately, extreme events occur much more often in real life.

…adapted to the reality of modern markets.

Taking advantage of the dramatic increases in modern computing power, we have developed a more practical variation of the model, which we have refined in years of trading and investing in the markets.

Our model includes, among others, a more realistic assessment of:
• The possibility of extreme events in the market
• The actual effect these can have on an investor’s portfolio

While no model can render portfolios immune to extreme events, such “prudent”, more realistic, models aim to offer investors more attractive returns for the level of risk chosen.

A Systematic and Disciplined Investment Process
A Systematic and Disciplined Investment Process

Our investment Process comprises 4 main phases:

1. Asset Allocation: Our Investment Committee decides our strategic asset allocation evaluating a comprehensive list of both qualitative and quantitative factors. 
2. Investment Selection: We choose the most suitable investments for each asset class, based on a systematic list of criteria, such as liquidity, cost efficiency, likelihood of outperformance. 
3. Optimisation: We perform a detailed optimization of portfolios, with the objective of offering investors more attractive returns for the level of risk chosen. 
4. Risk Management and Monitoring: Portfolios are continuously monitored. We have developed specific software designed to measure, monitor, minimize and forecast risk.

Broadly diversified, global portfolios.

The typical final portfolio is:

Highly diversified, both in term of asset classes (Equities, Bonds, commodities, alternative investments) and in term of geographical exposure 
Optimised, aiming to choose the best combination of investments for the need of each investor.

Portfolios are continuously monitored and regularly updated, rebalanced and re-optimised.
