Who We Are


We are a boutique investment management firm offering systematic strategies to private and institutional investors, guided by our values of alignment, humility, curiosity, and evidence-based practice. 

"If we do things like everybody else, we'll end up like everybody else." - Mac Van Wielingen​​

Building on decades of investment industry experience and having overseen the management of more than $100B of assets, our team identified a number of key challenges facing long-term capital management. We strongly believe that we have created a unique platform that addresses these issues, and uses a stewardship approach to manage capital for the long-term.

Our Investment Approach


1

Delivering Global Beta


Investors often talk about Beta as being reflective of the global stock market, or even the local stock market. In today’s world, particularly with easy and low-cost access to global markets, we believe Beta should be viewed as the world's total investable assets across stocks, corporate bonds, and government bonds. We researched and built a foundational Global Beta index that serves as the Fund's benchmark. 

2

Low-Cost, Systematic Multi-Asset Investing


We combine the low fees of systematic investing with the benefits of active asset allocation. Applying our unique value, momentum, and trend overlays between asset classes and countries, it is our belief that investors will achieve more consistent returns over the long term.

3

Evidence-Based, Not Forecasting


Our strategies are entirely rules-based and are developed by our in-house research department using analytical and machine learning models.

4

Liquid Alternative


We believe that the vast majority of information in financial markets is noise, meaning that it doesn't hold any statistical significance. 
Our models harness the power of data and technology to find statistically significant data relationships. Our core investment principle is to harvest equity and credit premiums to produce global balanced-like returns over time, but with significantly more downside protection. 

Flagship Strategy


Our flagship Fund invests across liquid stock, corporate bond, and government bond markets globally. We use a combination of global Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and direct holdings to get market exposures.

The Fund's model runs in Canada, the U.S., Japan, Australia, France, Germany, Switzerland, the U.K., and emerging markets.
