Investment Risk

We are mindful of building a margin of safety into our investment risk management approach and, therefore, seek to acquire investments at a substantial discount to our estimate of their intrinsic value. This allows us some room for error in our analysis while also providing protection in the event of an unanticipated outcome.

Our internal risk management process is based on a mean-variance methodology, targeting a specific level of market risk acceptable in terms of achieving our return objectives.

Within our managed funds, we comply with strict position-sizing and leverage limits as outlined by the regulations governing the collective investment schemes we manage.

Prescient Fund Services (PFS) are the administrators of all the funds under our management and responsible for mandate compliance and monitoring. Their internal risk management process includes the monthly publication of a detailed risk report for the Blue Quadrant Capital Growth RI Hedge Fund, This report is available to prospective investors at their request.

Operational Risk

We recognise that operational and business risk mitigation is as critical as the management of investment risk. Blue Quadrant Capital Management partners with South Africa’s premium financial service providers who deliver compliance, administrative and operational services.

The Blue Quadrant shareholders are committed to the growth and longevity of the business and are anchor investors in both the hedge fund and unit trust.
