Our Funds

Our flagship strategy comes in three flavors, catering for different risk profiles. The investment strategy and pro-rata allocations remain the same. The difference between them are the amount of leverage used.

Please note that the volatility figures are only indicative guidelines, backward looking, and are the average we expect over a cycle. There is the risk of loss as well as the opportunity for gain when investing in our funds. It is recommended to discuss your investment goals, risk tolerance, and personal financial situation with a professional financial advisor before making any investment decisions.

Key Features


We invest globally across all asset classes. A diversified portfolio can help mitigate the impact of market volatility, leading to smoother returns over time. As a Malaysian based investor with internationally linked spending requirements, it makes sense to have some investments abroad.

Not Benchmark Constrained

We have the ability to go short and to use leverage when prudent. As we are not benchmark constrained, this allows us to potentially profit in falling markets. These tools provide greater flexibility in navigating changing market conditions, and can be beneficial for performance-oriented investors.


Dynamic Asset Allocation

Our use of technology and low-cost brokerage fees allows us to adopt a dynamic daily rebalancing approach that seeks to take advantage of market opportunities, reduce exposure to underperforming assets, and manage overall portfolio risk.

Low Correlations

Investments that have low correlations are less likely to move in the same direction, thus reducing the risk of large losses on a portfolio level. This diversification helps to smooth out returns, which can lead to more consistent and stable returns over time.


A recent paper in academic finance titled “A Century of Asset Allocation Crash Risk” investigated various asset allocation approaches over the past 100 years. Key findings are displayed in the following table. Sharpe Ratio is a measure of risk-adjusted returns (higher better) whilst maximum drawdown is the maximum loss from the peak experienced by investors (less negative better) over the period.


The 60/40 is a standard benchmark that allocates 60% of the portfolio to stocks, and 40% to bonds.

We note that (going from left to right):

  • Going from US 60/40 to Global 60/40 helps lessen the maximum drawdown.
  • Diversified adds on factors, REITs and commodities and has a better Sharpe than the US 60/40 portfolio. 
  • Endowment adds on venture capital, private equity and hedge funds. This improves Sharpe significantly.
  • Dynamic switches between stocks and bonds based on past returns, and also leverages and deleverages the portfolio according to volatility. This achieves good Sharpes whilst significantly reducing the maximum drawdown.
  • Exposure to factor premia (e.g. growth, value, size, quality, etc.) has also shown to add value both in terms of Sharpe and the maximum drawdown.

Our strategy attempts to incorporate all these winning elements as we invest globally across asset classes, including exposure to Private Equity using liquid replication techniques and Hedge Funds by implementing the strategies ourselves. Within equities, we have exposure to various factor risk premia. We also allocate a small section of the portfolio to emerging asset classes such as carbon credits and digital assets. Finally, we dynamically rebalance our strategies daily, and employ disciplined risk management during volatile market conditions.

However, we do note that past performance is not indicative of future performance.
