Approach & Philosophy

Philosophy and Approach

Our Philosophy

Lake Partners believes that it is just as important to manage risk as it is to aim for returns. Preserving capital is the first step to growing capital, so controlling portfolio volatility and drawdowns can help improve compound rates of return and long-term results.

Our Approach

Lake Partners' comprehensive approach includes:

  • Well-defined risk parameters that serve as the foundation for portfolio construction and allocations
  • Identifying liquid, regulated alternative investment opportunities based on both top-down views, as well as strategy and manager considerations
  • Careful manager selection based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis along with thorough due diligence
