Managing a portfolio of individual hedge funds requires disciplined manager due diligence, portfolio construction, and risk management. ECM creates value through its investment process which involves our most senior professionals, and has been used by the firm for more than 18 years. We believe that over time this approach should deliver additive risk-adjusted performance as we strive to identify and invest in the great managers and strategies of tomorrow.
The firm is organized across six functional areas:
ECM has established a formal governing process and an efficient operational structure that brings together accountability and efficiency. ECM is governed by two primary committees—the Investment and Operations Committees—composed of senior members of the firm. We also benefit from the long-term relationships we have built with a number of reputable service providers that specialize in fund accounting and administration, securities laws and regulations, audit and tax, and technology.
