For select clients our Fund of Funds In a BoxTM makes it quick and easy!
It’s a big universe – make it manageable.
There are around 10,000 hedge funds in the popular databases. Many programs and traders are not in the databases.
It’s a big universe – we make it manageable.
For each investor, we start with three questions:
- What are your objectives?
- How much capital will you deploy?
- What are your “hard” constraints?
We screen industry databases and tap our network for undiscovered gems. Our goal is to narrow the universe from thousands to hundreds, while retaining all the high-potential candidates.
Reveal the story hidden in the numbers.
The primary task is to grasp the underlying principles of the trading system. Then we explore the deeper story hidden in the numbers.
Our proprietary suite of statistics:
- Mitigates selection bias.
- Projects realistic performance expectations.
- Identifies managers who deliver positive surprises.
- Seeks managers who reinforce positive returns and off-set negative returns.
We narrow the field of candidates down to our contenders, organized into groups, ranked, and ready to move on to the due diligence phase.

Operational Due Diligence
10 years after Madoff you still have to be on guard. To protect your capital from operational risk and fraud you need the best in operational due diligence:
- Verify back-office cash controls are iron-clad.
- Scrutinize trading system deployment, management, and monitoring for hidden risk.
- Cross-check all information for accuracy.
- Review service providers for suitability.
Only contenders who pass our rigorous operational due diligence review will be finalists for a portfolio.
5 – 20
Target higher returns and lower drawdowns.
5 – 20
Standard portfolio construction methods optimize volatility (“risk”) versus returns. Volatility is not risk, and returns are unpredictable. A better approach is to build a portfolio around controlling drawdowns.
Our proprietary Empirical Space Portfolio Model:
- Targets a portfolio drawdown profile that is acceptable to you.
- Capitalizes on key performance characteristics of your selected managers.
- Respects the constraints of your investment policy.
We build portfolios that are optimized to your specific risk tolerance: we put you firmly in the driver’s seat.
