The Brandywine Difference
Brandywine is uniquely positioned to provide investment programs that provide diversification to your portfolio and have the potential to both reduce risk and enhance returns. Listed below are some of the key differentiators that distinguish Brandywine:
- Longevity and actual trading experience. Since 1982, Brandywine has accumulated extensive trading skills across a broad variety of investment products and instruments. We have developed – through actual trading – a core competency in non-correlated alternative investments, including managed futures, crisis alpha, market neutral equity, tactical asset allocation, venture investing and entrepreneurship, and real estate development.
- Institutional focus on risk management. We literally wrote the book on portfolio allocation and risk management. Our founder’s best seller introduced the use of Return Drivers and true portfolio diversification to properly identify and manage portfolio risk. He was clear in our belief that the use of current portfolio “optimization” techniques and passive investing to create 60-40 portfolios is akin to gambling.
- A legacy of continuing innovation. We love research. Although the majority of our research ideas have been derived from our market trading experiences, we also collect, catalog and prioritize numerous other ideas for ongoing research. We are voracious readers and students of the markets. And unlike others who think primarily of stocks when they hear the word markets, Brandywine has a much broader view. Since 1982 we have developed strategies and traded in more than 100 global financial, currency and commodity markets. We also don’t constrain our research to asset classes, but instead research and employ strategies across disparate Return Drivers. This provides us with a natural ability to structure truly diversified portfolios.
