Globally Enhanced Management Strategy

Our Globally Enhanced Management Strategy (GEMS) pursues a flexible top-down approach to access a broader opportunity set – expanding beyond the traditional stock and bond asset allocation to include global stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities.

GEMS seeks to participate in positions in any of the world’s major capital markets. We consider both economic adjustment themes as well as shorter-term technical conditions when choosing trading positions. GEMS may invest in multiple markets in anticipation of expected market movements. These movements may result from forecasted shifts in world economies, political changes or global supply and demand imbalances. Investment vehicles and styles will differ across time.
