"A modular overlay covering different risks makes it possible to implement a wide variety of institutional requirement profiles."

Risk Overlay


Holistic hedging of institutional portfolios

Our risk overlay strategy is a progressive risk management concept designed to reduce volatility and risk within your portfolio while optimising potential returns. 

Managing portfolio risk can be a challenge in today’s complex and fast-moving financial landscape. Our strategy offers a systematic approach that combines quantitative analysis techniques with portfolio management practices to manage risks effectively. 

As well as providing a hedging mechanism against market fluctuations, the risk overlay strategy is an essential component of an integrated investment strategy, offering customised solutions that take into account the specific risk tolerances and return targets of each investor. 

We invite you to have a conversation with us to learn more about the benefits and applications of our risk overlay strategy, and are always on hand to help if you have any queries or need any advice. Our aim is to help you implement an effective and efficient risk management strategy tailored to your individual needs.
