“Best of all we should know the future.”
John Maynard Keynes
“The probable is that which for the most part happens.”
“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.”
Commingled investment funds and alternative investment strategies, including hedge funds, private debt and equity, infrastructure and venture capital, are often the largest type of investment in global portfolios, such as pensions and endowments. These can be complex investments.
The challenge for investors is the extensive due diligence necessary to benefit from alternative strategies. A lack of available resources can mean higher risks or lower returns for investors. This is where we come in.
Since inception in 2013, we have worked on over 130 projects for our clients, covering investments in both liquid and private markets. Our work has taken us to 14 cities in eight countries in Europe, the Americas and Asia. We work globally.
We provide endowments, pensions and wealth managers of all types with the necessary due diligence to allocate with confidence to alternative investments strategies.
In Steven Spielberg’s film, The Post, Meryl Streep plays Washington Post CEO Katharine Graham, who famously faced down the Nixon White House over the Pentagon Papers in 1971.
Graham risked going to jail by publishing them, but by doing so completely undermined the case for the war in Vietnam. Once these facts became clear, public opinion shifted. High stakes and great real-life drama.
London offers tremendous theatre, from marquee West End shows to excellent fringe venues, including my favourite the Finborough. But even these pale in comparison to the political theatre of 2016. “Brexit” and “Trump” both seem to offer a kind of 21st century mercantilism, seeking to gain national advantage, though not necessarily global benefit, by ripping up existing trade agreements and starting all over again.
