In a world where virtually all asset classes are expensive and interest rates are at
all-time lows, having strategies that can deliver an absolute-return profile is a game
changer for portfolios. Public Market Alternatives delivers diversified returns
uncorrelated to the equity markets for our clients, and the liquidity to stay agile in
changing market conditions.
IMCO's Public Market Alternatives (PMA) program offers a powerful combination of
true diversification and absolute returns, matched by flexibility and a commitment to
innovation. By remaining separate from equities, our strategy seeks to deliver
high-value returns to our clients on a risk-adjusted basis while staying liquid and
flexible to take full advantage of rapidly shifting market dynamics.
Our PMA team's expertise is enhanced by a unique “incubator” approach to emerging
opportunities, from investing in mining financing to gain exposure to rising commodity
cycles or taking royalty positions on specific healthcare sector segments. Our select,
in-depth relationships with world-class external managers bring a proven and
sustainable advantage to the table, offering differentiated investment opportunities
with attractive terms to our clients. All our fund manager selections are benchmarked
against ESG screening, analysis and stewardship practices.
We invest in a variety of mandates—from equity neutral, event-driven, and
global macro and currency investments to volatility arbitrage—to
enhance risk-adjusted returns. IMCO's collaborative, nimble approach to solving
investment challenges while creating client value enable us to move quickly and with
conviction while maintaining a disciplined and transparent view of risk.
