Investment Governance and Committees

The sustainability of our business over the long term has been aided by a robust committee structure that is designed to ensure appropriate oversight, thoughtful decision-making and prudent risk management across all of our operations.

The Investment Committee is responsible for overseeing the firm’s investment portfolios. The Investment Committee meets formally each month to decide discretionary portfolio allocations, target leverage, and to discuss ongoing investment matters for both the systematic and discretionary strategies.

The firm’s Risk Committee is comprised of senior members of the firm’s management team and meets daily to review position-level information and related risks for each of the firm’s strategies within the context of prevailing market conditions. The daily process is designed to inform members of the firm’s senior management team of the various risks to which the firm is exposed.

Our Compliance Committee reviews all compliance-related issues that require firm-wide cooperation, including trading efficiency and best execution, and the policies and procedures detailed in our Compliance Manual and Code of Ethics. The members of this committee are also members of our Valuation Committee, which reviews any deviations from our valuation and pricing policies.
