Altus Solutions


Portfolios are built and managed so that they are diversified by style, asset class and regional exposure.

We have 3 key target drivers:



We manage client portfolios with a market agnostic approach that delivers returns on an absolute basis throughout the market cycle.


Downside protection

Returns have historically been more robust to thematic shifts and fat-tail type shocks – which acts as a good diversifying allocation for a wider portfolio.


Factor exposure & alpha

We focus carefully on the diversification of risks and the correlation of returns.Our returns are not derived from or dependent on traditional factors.The majority of our portfolio’s returns are ‘residual’ or in other words independent from these factors.
