Global Energy

Distinguishing Characteristics


The investment team has many years of experience deploying institutional capital within the Energy sector across multiple cycles.

Development - Cycle Focused

A deep understanding of the capital deployment cycle and asset level economics are crucial to generating alpha.

Enhanced Risk-Adjusted Returns

A focused, quantitative model that seeks to optimize risk-adjusted returns and minimize losses.

The Way We Think

To generate alpha across Energy cycles, investors must identify the optimal window between capital deployment, capital needs, and asset level returns. Anticipating changes and managing risks across different commodity price environments, varying levels of economic growth, and changing regulatory & policy regimes is crucial to success.

We Believe In:

Energy Investing

It is the changes in cash flow expectations that drive long-term performance across Energy equities

Asset-level Economics

A deep understanding of asset-level economics allows us to identify those companies that will position our strategies for above-average returns

Capital Efficiency

The most capital efficient companies have the highest probability of exceeding expectations and generating alpha

Risk Management

A dynamic risk management system is critical to monitoring both active and unintentional exposures and enhancing risk-adjusted returns

Process and Portfolio Construction

We utilize bottoms-up, fundamental analysis driven by a set of capital returns-focused metrics. When combined with our deep expertise across the Energy sector, our unique growth process is designed to produce a high-conviction portfolio of companies best positioned to accelerate returns from their capital investments. We employ institutional levels of risk control to ensure our portfolio delivers those returns at the optimized risk level.
