Drake Capital’s approach is defined by our commitment to effective stewardship and our peerless network of exceptional fund managers across the globe. Our objective is to compound capital over the long term while taking prudent risks.
Focus & Diligence
The best interests of our clients always come first.
Our vibrant, stimulating environment encourages investment creativity and honest long-term relationships.
We believe there are a small number of exceptional investment managers across the globe. It is our job to find and access them for investment. We uncover these opportunities by applying a proven, repeatable process.
We evaluate, monitor and manage investment, operational and business risks.
We seek to identify strategies with risk factors, time horizons and sources of return that are differentiated and have limited correlation. Strategy opportunities often arise from market dislocations.
- Macro / Systematic
- Emerging Markets
- Idiosyncratic Credit
In a global investment mandate, specialists drive alpha. We prefer managers in well-defined strategies where flexibility of thought is complemented by experience, conviction and organizational depth. We also seek to partner with managers early in their life cycle.
We apply multiple lenses to triangulate historical experience, the repeatability of processes and operational rigor.
- Factor Risk
- Time Horizon
Drake Capital prioritizes deep experience applied directly to the investment process. Our investment and operations teams leverage technology and information systems to enable us to operate with exceptional speed, efficiency and accuracy.
Our library of proprietary tools allows us to synthesize our research, risk management and operational due-diligence processes while actively monitoring underlying positions. In this way, we work to extend our interactions with prospective and existing investment managers, collect and analyze a wide range of data from many sources and make informed, timely investment decisions as markets and managers adjust to changing conditions.
