OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
MCI’s investment philosophy is based on rigorous empirical and theoretical research, grounded in Nobel Prize winning Modern Portfolio Theory. We believe that:
Markets are efficient In liquid markets, prices reflect all available information. Securities are fairly priced and reflect the expectations of all market participants.
Investment strategies can be structured to add value
Market premiums, such as small cap and value stocks, offer investors higher expected returns while balancing tradeoffs. Meticulous strategy design and efficient execution adds value and continuous rebalancing captures desired premiums while minimizing turnover.
Diversification is essential
Diversification helps reduce uncertainty and control risk. It also adds value by enabling more efficient portfolio management and flexible trading.
Costs matter.Low turnover by design keeps overall trading costs down without sacrificing overall execution. A trading philosophy that emphasizes patience and flexibility.
MCI has expanded its portfolio of professional capabilities well beyond its management consulting origins. Our management team has more than 15 years experience and a proven track record in working with successful young entrepreneurs and startup companies. Over time, the firm has added professionals with backgrounds that include investment banking, securities analysis, structured finance, law, accountancy, general line management and specific industry sector experts.
