As an active risk manager we don't believe one size fits all when measuring clients "appetite for risk." Our Macro process is designed to spot key inflection points within the global economy by tracking year-over-year rates of change within a growth, inflation, and policy framework. Are growth and inflation heating up or cooling down? This allows for a better understanding of the big picture and the fiscal and/or monetary policy response as a result. What markets are doing ≠ what the economy is doing. We don’t deal in an emotional or political space, we deal in a mathematical space. We’re not quantitative, we're fundamental with quantitative overlays. This is how you remove innate human behavior and emotion from the investing process.
