A differentiated investment approach

We are focused on a dynamic allocation of capital to what we see as the best opportunities.

We combine complementary investment backgrounds and a collaborative approach to ideally access a consistent pipeline of investment opportunities across risk, economic and market cycles. We look for niche strategies with barriers to entry, emphasising specialist skills and expertise. Our approach includes strategies directed at convertible bonds and volatility-linked instruments, fundamental and event-driven opportunities across credit markets, and investements within the metals, mining and commodities sectors.

Our strategies​

Global multi-disciplinary strategy​

A portfolio designed to ideally minimize correlation and tail risk utilizing a multi-disciplinary investment process. We employ a diverse range of strategies including those focused on convertible securities; opportunistic investments in credit and distressed situations; potential mis-pricings within the capital structures of mining and metals companies and underlying commodities; as well as volatility driven opportunities.

“We perceive our primary strategies to have defensible “niches”, including at times through an unconventional approach.”
Mike Humphries

A portfolio targeted at opportunities driven by the transition of energy to renewable resources, and the resulting impact on metals and mining companies and associated commodities.
