Objective

Seeks long-term capital appreciation with an absolute return focus.

Philosophy and Process

The Multi-Asset Growth Strategy is a global macro strategy which invests in Commodities, Currencies, Equities and Fixed Income. It provides a flexible global asset allocation framework that has three goals: capital appreciation, avoidance of catastrophic capital loss, and exploitation of market volatility.

The Multi-Asset Growth Strategy provides a flexible global asset allocation framework that seeks long-term capital appreciation while managing “tail risk” to exploit market volatility and striving to avoid catastrophic principal losses. The Strategy seeks to generate excess return through the use of aggressive sector rotation and multiple forward-looking forecasts.
