BOSTON--()--Windham Capital, an investment management firm recognized for its innovative risk-based investment strategies, is one of three nominees for “Emerging Manager of the Year” in the Money Management Intelligence 12th Annual Public Pension Fund Awards for Excellence. This award recognizes firms with $3 billion in assets under management or less that have made significant strides in delivering “return-enhancing solutions” to public fund investors and have increased their retirement fund client assets under management over the past year.
“I believe their approach may offer a stabilizer in declining markets, dampening the downside risk and a performance enhancer in resilient markets, with the ability to capture upside opportunities”
“We are honored to be among the three nominees for this award,” said Mark Kritzman, CEO of Windham Capital. “Windham launched its proprietary Risk Regime Investing™ strategy in 2009 during a time of great volatility following the global financial crisis. Risk Regime Investing™ is a forward-looking approach that provides additional diversification across an investment program through distinctive opportunities to capture excess returns, and a greater ability to protect against downside risk.”
“I believe their approach may offer a stabilizer in declining markets, dampening the downside risk and a performance enhancer in resilient markets, with the ability to capture upside opportunities,” said Andrew Sawyer, chief investment officer of MainePERS, one of Windham’s public fund clients.
Award winners will be announced on March 13, 2013 at a gala ceremony in Huntington Beach, California. Click here for a link to the Money Management Intelligence article on this year’s “Emerging Manager” nominees.
About Risk Regime InvestingTM
Risk Regime Investing™ is a globally diversified multi-asset class approach that dynamically adjusts portfolio allocations based on the prevailing market risk environment. Risk Regime Investing uses two proprietary risk measures to identify distinct market environments (“risk regimes”) and recognize shifts from one to another. The first, systemic risk, gauges the extent to which markets are moving together and therefore more – or less – resilient to shocks. The second, financial turbulence, measures unusual relationships between asset class prices and shows extreme price movements. Windham constructs a multi-asset class portfolio designed to deliver the best risk/reward tradeoff for the prevailing risk regime.
