We invest for absolute returns. Everything we do is focused on the achievement of consistent, positive, absolute performance.
We endeavour to add value to clients by finding and creating ways to access investment opportunities which are not widely available through traditional investment management channels.
We have always believed that the optimal way to construct an investment portfolio is to use macro themes as the portfolio’s building blocks. Culross aims typically to employ 4-6 themes where each theme is then populated with 2-4 managers.
Our history is built on investing with smaller specialist funds where we gain high transparency and form a strong working relationship with the principals of the firm. Size can be your enemy in investment management.
We perform detailed due diligence on our managers and their funds, including onsite visits, background checks and operational assessments.
We match each solution to the client’s liquidity requirements and avoid asset-liability mismatches.
We offer our investors full transparency.
In building an institutional organisation over 25 years, we have always been mindful that the quality of our decision making is more important than sheer quantity of resources.
