Investment Philosophy

The combination of convergent and divergent strategies allows us to seek absolute return in any market environment

Convergent Strategies

  • Markets trade through various cycles and, during rational periods, markets tend to exhibit lower volatility with prices being driven by fundamentals and value.
  • Convergent strategies are positioned to seek to capture returns in these environments

Divergent Strategies

  • Markets from time to time exhibit irrational periods where volatility spikes and markets trade under stress conditions with fear and greed driving prices, as opposed to fundamental information.
  • During these times traditional portfolios often exhibit large left-hand tail resulting in potentially large losses.
  • It is during these periods that Divergent strategies are needed.
