Given the high correlation often found between asset classes and our experience managing through more frequent “fat tail” windows of volatility, we believe it is important to analyze macro environments and forces:  Not to guess interest rates or time economic cycles, but to model and stress potential paths and scenarios within the context of our clients' balance sheets.  We seek to Preserve capital by identifying risk exposure to the present value of equity in our clients’ balance sheets.  We then address those risks by building liquidity and optionality into specialized portfolios to Strengthen the portfolio as the Control Lever to maximize risk-adjusted total return for our clients by protecting and subsequently Growing the present value of equity in anticipation of and throughout more volatile environments.
