We Believe...

Portfolio wealth must be managed to withstand unexpected market shocks. Therefore, risk must be managed effectively through careful analysis and quantification.

Since risk is constantly changing, portfolios need to be adaptive. Achieving the desired outcome (i.e., wealth protection/accumulation) is paramount.

Risk management is our strength.

How We Think...

Our risk management approach – avoiding large drawdowns – ultimately delivers long-term outperformance. Lower risk doesn’t mean settling for lower returns.

What Makes Us Different

Our unique, rules based methodology is the result of differentiated thinking.

Paritas Capital

  • No economic or market forecasting
  • Employs a risk-based approach to portfolio management
  • Diversifies broadly based on volatility and correlation
  • More consistent results over up and down markets
  • Objective: deliver higher risk-adjusted returns

Traditional Managers

  • Try to predict the unpredictable; focused on market and/or economic forecasting
  • Capital-based allocation ignores risk factors
  • Capital allocation does not equal risk exposure
  • Ineffective sell discipline tends to produce underperformance over time
  • Inconsistent results lead to dissatisfaction

What Makes Us Better

Our focus is to deliver the successful outcomes that clients desire.

To achieve that goal, we are committed to developing investment solutions that incorporate these key attributes.

Additionally, our commitment to achieving best industry practice standards includes firm wide GIPS® verification.
