About us

Our Firm

We are a global business which invests across all major asset classes and geographies and our investment process is unconstrained by benchmarks. Instead, it is disciplined by economic theory, empirical evidence, and pioneering risk management. Above all, we seek to deliver on our clients’ investment objectives, providing them with innovative, tailored solutions that are at the frontier of financial research.


Our focus is on uncovering investment opportunities wherever they are and our unconstrained universe gives the flexibility to implement what we observe as being the best investment strategies across time horizons, asset classes and regions. Discipline, repeatability, risk management, research and technology are at the core of our investment process and it is our aim to stay at the frontier of financial science to best serve the interest of our clients.


Our people are at the heart of our business and we pride ourselves on fostering a culture of openness, independent thinking, and inclusion. At Fulcrum, we are more than the sum of the parts.
