KStone seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns in all economic environments
The process starts with our investment philosophy and
includes four major stages
KStone aims to deliver superior investment results for a given level of risk
KStone seeks to achieve returns that exceed the risk-free rate of return, with volatility similar to fixed income markets.
Historically, the portfolios that KStone manages have generated superior risk-adjusted returns. Generally, KStone’s portfolios are not dependent on the performance of the equity markets for returns.
KStone seeks to mitigate risk by having the sources of return be diverse and not correlated to interest rate movement.
KStone’s primary focus is on risk management at the portfolio and underlying manager levels and KStone seeks to control volatility and preserve investors’ capital.
KStone’s CIO has substantial and diversified business and investment experience.
