We take individual objectives and guidelines of clients into account to identify appropriate solutions as specifically as possible. We also consider the current market environment and the corresponding opportunities and risks of investment strategies and styles.
The evaluation and selection process begins with the definition of the investment universe. Then the screening of the universe for suitable managers and products as well as the development of long and short lists follows, to filter out the favorites.
SIGLO does not provide any recommendations for products or managers without prior extensive due diligence, which covers both the investment side and the entire operational side and it also includes an extensive on-site visit to the managers. The results always flow into an executive summary and a detailed due diligence report for submission to the clients.
SIGLO meets over 500 managers who manage over 2'000 products per annum. Examples of current SIGLO manager selections are EMD- and HY bond funds as well as a wide range of alternatives such as loans, CTAs, insurance-linked strategies (ILS) or direct lending.
