Self-Critical

“Decision makers will make better choices when they expect their decision to be judged by how it was made, not only by how it turned out. “ 

Daniel Kahneman

The Firm believes in an iterative process involving constantly reviewing investment thesis in the context of incremental news, which requires retaining a dispassionate view of the opportunities at hand, even after spending weeks on an investment proposal.

The investment process is built upon this philosophy across all portfolios, from tradable strategies to private credit. A pre-mortem analysis is conducted ahead of any transaction, and post-mortem after investing, as a continuous process.

Responsible

Investment Process

Our investment process is an iterative loop involving constant evaluation of different inputs.

Macro and Market Environment

Define our medium-term outlook relevant for the investment strategy.  Assess the impact of macro indicators, corporate and other news-flow on our portfolios.

Fundamental Analysis and Due Diligence

This involves understanding the company’s business, both financial and non-financial characteristics, including relevant ESG factors or criteria.

Identify Value

Through our fundamental lens, we seek attractive risk-adjusted value opportunities, across capital structures, between sectors, issuers, borrowers and across maturities. Beyond fundamentals, risk management, timing and quality of execution play an equal part in our decisions to invest.

Portfolio Construction

Driven by a combination of hard and soft, self-imposed limits with the aim of creating a diversified portfolio which respects the liquidity profile of the fund or mandate we manage.

Monitoring and Portfolio Review

For Tradable strategies, this includes daily market risk and limits monitoring. For Private Credit strategies, monitoring includes ongoing dialogues with the borrowers or originators, checking covenant triggers, business plans and remittance reports, and re-testing the underwriting base case with new data.
