We believe that markets contain inefficiencies which can be exploited by hedge fund managers who exhibit the skill necessary to deliver excess returns. We believe that the global, dynamic, and repeatable research process can identify such investment skill.
We believe that we are able to identify the most talented managers across what we consider to be the best strategies globally, and ensure that we capture these managers during their best periods. We are able to manage investment risk through ongoing monitoring and due diligence which helps us to avoid unrewarded risks.
Private equity investing should always deliver an illiquidity premium when compared against public equity market investing. Our investment-led process has been refined to focus on high-conviction private equity strategies with risk-return profiles that have rewarded illiquidity in the past, and where we believe that a supply and demand imbalance between the need for investment and available capital will persist in the future.
To deliver an illiquidity premium we are focused on what we believe to be best-in-class investments, giving you choice on how to access Private Equity and how involved you want to be in the investment decisions.
PRIVATE EQUITY STRATEGY SELECTION
We focus on investing in strategies where there is a genuine need for private capital, and which we believe can compensate for the illiquidity associated with private equity investing. We have the depth of knowledge and are also able to dedicate significant time into screening the manager universe in these four areas to ensure access to ‘best-in-class’ managers globally.
MANAGER SOURCING AND SELECTION
Our team’s manager selection process is founded on a wealth of experience, strong industry knowledge, and a comprehensive due diligence process. This process, combined with our sector expertise, facilitates the identification and selection of what we consider to be the best and most appropriate managers.
Our team’s expertise in their core areas of conviction often means we are able to gain access to exclusive, institutional-quality opportunities with leading private equity groups. We are then able to deliver these opportunities to our clients in a variety of ways according to their needs and desire for involvement.
PARTNER AND CONSULTANT
We take a consultative, partnership-driven approach to help ensure that you have access to what we believe to be best-in-class real estate investment opportunities globally. These opportunities include commercial real estate in global gateway cities, niche hard assets, and diversified fund opportunities delivered by carefully selected sector experts.
RESEARCH AND ASSET ACQUISITION
By identifying and partnering with local asset managers in target regions, we can often uncover compelling opportunities in highly restrictive and segmented markets.
STRONG STRUCTURING CAPABILITY
You benefit from our strong structuring capability which seeks to maximize asset efficiency and investment return potential with a broad and comprehensive range of support services.
We believe that inefficiencies exist in opaque and illiquid real estate markets, and using local networks and asset managers can help to uncover compelling and mispriced investment opportunities. As mispricing is both capital and income related, this creates an opportunity for enhanced returns and low volatility which – coupled with creative deal sourcing, intelligent structuring and management – can unlock and maximize hidden value potential.
