Hitesh C. Patel
The ultimate goal is to be an active portfolio manager with limited tracking error and to make sure we take sufficient amount of risk so that our definition of active shares is significant but not uncorrelated to the benchmark.
Barrow All-Cap Core Fund, Barrow All-Cap Long Short Fund
David R Bechtel
We implement a proprietary private equity approach to uncover high-quality companies trading at temporary discounts to their intrinsic values. We scour the entire market on a regular basis for stocks that offer both quality and value in tandem. We call this investing at the intersection of quality and value.

361 Managed Futures Strategy Fund
Brian Cunningham
Since we launched the Fund in late 2011, the level of noise and volatility in the market has been in the bottom 20% of what we’ve seen going back fifteen years. We’ve still been able to produce returns that are toward the top of our category.
MainStay International Opportunities Fund
Andrew Ver Planck
Diversification plays a huge role in our fund and that’s one of our guiding principles. As a quantitative manager you tend not to have a high level of conviction in an individual security. You have conviction in baskets of securities.
