We are an investment management and advisory firm based in Grand Cayman that focuses on global macroeconomics. We believe that an expert understanding of global macroeconomics is the single most important factor to manage risk and drive returns in today’s global markets. Whether today’s issues are pandemics, trade wars, climate change, or currency crises; all of these themes are under the umbrella of global macroeconomic analysis. Investment strategies built on global macroeconomic analysis, known as global macro, are far more robust than traditional investment strategies because they identify risks earlier and are more diversified across asset classes. These investment strategies have a powerful additional advantage – the flexibility to make investment positions that benefit from rising market prices as well as falling market prices. It is no wonder that global macro investing is considered the most adaptive investment strategy and admired for its ability to protect wealth and deliver returns through all market conditions.
Our investment strategy is exclusively driven by global macroeconomics. This allows us to adapt to any market conditions and provides us the flexibility to invest across a wide variety of liquid asset classes such as equities, bonds, currencies, commodities, and futures. We make investment decisions based on numerous factors such as foreign policy, global interest rates, energy prices, and many other global data inputs.
We help our clients navigate complex cross-border issues related to their investment portfolios. Investing globally and safeguarding assets has never been more complex. We design innovative structures to protect assets and improve cost efficiencies for investments that span multiple jurisdictions.
Governments need reliable and actionable advice on macroeconomic policies. Most governments rely on advice from academics and input from the private sector. Our firm has spent over twenty years analyzing various macroeconomic policies while placing capital at risk based on our predictive outcome modeling.

Timeless Investment Strategy
Our belief is that Global Macro is the most creative, opportunistic, and adaptive investment strategy. Furthermore, we believe that liquid investments across asset classes present far more opportunities and better risk control than any other method of investing. The only constant in life is change. Doesn’t it make sense to have an investment strategy designed for that?
Since our inception, we have been advocates for the protection of the environment and all its inhabitants. We care about our planet and its future. In our view, climate change is the single largest risk to humanity. There is no larger nor more important Global Macro theme than achieving global sustainability. We actively invest in companies that are steering us to a more sustainable world and we short equities and bonds of companies that are destroying it.
Risk Management Is In Our DNA
Risk management is at the foundation of everything that we do. The world is rapidly changing and without taking risks there are no gains, however, the management of risk is paramount to preserving capital and growing it long term.
We Drive Change
ESG and impact investing are the two fastest-growing sectors of the investing world right now. We have been thought leaders, writing articles, and speaking about sustainable investing since the day our firm was founded. To us, sustainable investing is at its heart a Global Macro theme and the solution to financial and environmental sustainability requires policies at the macroeconomic level. As part of our sovereign advisory services, we provide governments with pro-bono advice on strategies to drive sustainable economies. In our portfolios, we have deployed capital in innovative ways to support ESG and impact investing’s effectiveness.
