Aventine Asset Management Inc.

Aventine Managed Strategies

The strategic priority of our advisory practice is to ensure that we are continually advancing solutions that meet the needs of international investors in a dynamic marketplace.  Whether it’s access to a specific mandate or bespoke portfolio management with specific risk thresholds, we can design and implement a wide range of investment solutions from our internally managed strategies.

Bottom Up Security Research

Our bottom up investment process applies equal parts fundamental and quantitative research to identify opportunities in undervalued, catalyst rich securities across a range of asset classes. We hold an excellent understanding of the management, companies and sectors we invest in, allowing us to focus our investments in a limited number of high conviction opportunities. We believe that portfolios which emphasize value investing and a catalyst-oriented approach will generate consistently superior risk adjusted returns.

Top Down Risk Management

Complementing our bottom up security selection approach is a top down risk management framework which monitors key trends in economic, financial and political conditions across major markets and asset classes. Rather than avoiding risk entirely, our focus is on taking smart risks and having a plan to limit downside surprises.  Our goal is to manage each strategy within specific targets for volatility, position sizing and market exposure, while avoiding any peak-to-trough portfolio losses greater than 10%.
