Structure Based Risk Management

A Centralized Resource, a Firm-wide Responsibility, our Risk management has been central our investment culture. As an employee-owned manager, everyone at our firm is invested in identifying and managing risk—risk to our clients, risk to our portfolios, risk to our reputation.

We believe that fostering an environment of strong internal control is vital. To this end, we have established a rigorous risk management framework that features dedicated investment and operational risk teams who work to protect client assets and our reputation. Our risk professionals act as an independent complement to each investment team’s portfolio construction process, driving investment and operational risk reviews in collaboration with other control units of the firm, such as information technology, operations, legal and compliance, asset management guideline oversight and internal audit. Our risk management structure is enhanced by an ability to escalate issues as necessary to firm leadership as well as our fund boards and firm board of directors.

GEM FUND by design attracts individuals who share a passion for investing and who thrive in an environment of rigorous analysis, challenging dialogue, and professional and personal respect.

Our portfolio managers have worked in asset management and Equity fund for over 20 years. And while our clients benefit from the wisdom of our seasoned professionals, we are always looking to supplement their ranks with emerging talent; by enabling the transfer of knowledge, providing growth opportunities for skilled investors and building thoughtful succession plans, we seek to ensure a consistent client experience over the long term.
