We combine positioning, expectation and mass-market psychology to deliver outstanding macro insight

  • Macro & policy surprises

    Markets are largely efficient in the short-term. We focus on where expectations are, and where it’s most likely that future events will diverge from the collective forecast.

  • Investor positioning

    All things being equal, uncrowded trades are more profitable than crowded ones. We spend a lot of time analyzing where the crowds are, and trying to avoid them.

  • Cross-asset

    What’s the difference between long-term Treasury yields and the relative performance of cyclical vs. defensive equities? Not much. Our cross-asset focus lets us spot dislocations across asset classes.

  • Market cycle

    Our investment horizon spans 3-6 months. Why? Because that’s the average duration of individual risk cycles in the post-crisis era.

  • Catalyst driven

    Of course, markets can stay crowded longer than investors can stay solvent. Our analysis incorporates the catalysts most likely to force price discovery.

  • Cross-geography

    US macro data affect European sovereign yields. ECB actions impact Japanese equities. And Chinese policy drives EM currencies. We monitor it all.
