Our Approach to Investment Strategy Research
Timing is key, and our focus is to determine the optimal moment to increase or reduce exposure to a specific asset class or make a tactical trade. We take pride in presenting our clients with resolute ideas based on their specific needs, giving them an opportunity to adjust to their portfolios with greater confidence. In many cases, we act as a ‘sounding board’ or a ‘second opinion’ to help you see how interdependencies and interconnections will have an impact on your investment strategy.
Using detailed economic and political risk analysis as the building blocks of our strategy, our team of expert strategists assess market positioning and technical signals and quantitative strategy research model to formulate asset and investment recommendations based on the most likely outcomes. And our agnostic approach to asset classes allows us to give you the best value recommendations - whether that's cross-asset, multi-asset or within asset classes.
