Overview

Driven by the needs of today's investor.

Our Principles

Equium Capital was created with the needs of today’s investor front of mind. Even with advances in technology and access to information, investors still find themselves short on answers and long on fees. As we see it, the world needs an investment product better suited to today’s complex environment, priced appropriately and delivered to clients with accountability and transparency.

Founded on five core principles, which permeate every aspect of the firm’s culture, Equium Capital consistently applies its investment process to conservatively protect and grow capital over time in a way that is fully aligned with clients. We believe a modern, best-in-class asset manager should be the embodiment of:

At Equium Capital, we believe that our success is an outcome of delivering positive results for clients while maintaining open and constructive relationships with all of our partners and stakeholders. We view these principles as integral to both long-term value creation for our investors as well as the success and longevity of our firm. 

 
 

Founders

The founders of Equium Capital bring highly complementary skill sets to the combined investment process, embodying the belief that the best approach involves both top-down technical strategy and bottom-up fundamental research. In addition, we significantly value the partnership between Equium Capital and its clients and advisors, one predicated upon the virtuous circle of transparency, accessibility and accountability.  We diligently strive every year to deliver consistent, risk-adjusted investment returns in a way that reflects these values and exceeds the expectations of our clients and partners.
