How We Invest

Learn more about how we design, build, and manage portfolios for our clients. 

Customized Separate Accounts

Our customized approach to portfolio construction provides clients the opportunity to have an active role in determining the composition of their alternatives programs. We assign a coverage team to each client. We begin by assessing the client’s investment and operational goals for the alternatives program. We also consider the client’s specific regulatory and reporting needs. We then collaborate with the client through the design, implementation, and monitoring phases of the portfolio.
