STRATEGY PROFILE

Global Natural Resources Equity
The Global Natural Resources Equity strategy seeks to provide hard assets exposure and maximize the portfolio's Sharpe ratio for the best risk/reward exposure. We invest in equities exposed to a broad commodity universe and seek to actively allocate to the most attractive opportunities in our space. Our skill set and process allow us to evaluate commodity fundamentals. We then allocate among equities with positive leverage to commodities, more neutral leverage (more levered volume than price), and sometimes with negative leverage (commodity consumers). As a result, we can effectively manage through an entire cycle in an effort to generate peer-competitive Sharpe ratio performance.
