Direct Hedge Funds

Hedge Fund investments are typically made for one of two reasons: to generate absolute returns or provide risk mitigation. At Miles Capital we focus on constructing hedge fund portfolios designed to help mitigate risks within the broader client portfolio.

The ability of hedge funds to be long or short a particular investment or market enables them to alter their exposure to the broader market, potentially minimizing the impact of down markets. These opportunities outside of the traditional stock and bond markets can help preserve principal, diversify return streams, and withstand various rate and market cycles, all while producing positive returns.

There is strong dispersion among hedge fund manager returns, even within the same strategy. Top firms significantly outperform their bottom quartile peers. High barriers to entry exist in investing with these managers. At Miles Capital, we help overcome these hurdles.
