Investment Process

Investment Strategy

The investment process of LCAM relies on decades of academic insights combined with meticulous analysis. The investment universe is global and investments are made in Equity- and Debt instruments. A core aspect of our process is the focus on asset allocation strategies, rather than asset selection.

Equities: A combination of factor strategies, thematic investments and single stock strategies are employed.

Bonds:  The exposure is determined by relative value analysis of broad Credit- and Rates indices for different geographies, as well as durations.

Objectives and Implementation

  • Volatility cap: Continuous evaluation of portfolio risk, with a volatility target below 7 % per annum.
  • Rebalancing: Every second month, the portfolio is rebalanced according to our current asset allocation policy.
  • Low fees: When external mandates such as ETF:s or Mutual Funds are used, the selection is based on low tracking error and low fees.
