How We Invest
As information sources around the globe have become more concentrated, we think the breath of consensus views has shrunk. Sitting outside of consensus carries an asymmetric risk for many fiduciaries who face the risk of both financial loss and job risk if a decision proves to be erroneous.
At Cerutty Macro Fund we seek to take the other side of these trends by embracing the risk that opportunities with asymmetric upside potential hold. We’re small enough to get in and out of positions quicker than many of our counterparts and we have our own capital invested reducing the “job risk” part of the equation.
We look for opportunities in long term secular trends which are often known but still underappreciated or the 2nd and 3rd order effects of long-term secular trends which fewer people are talking about.
