In late 2016, a Northern California-based long/short equity hedge fund added Omega Point into its risk management arsenal to better manage factor exposures across its investment portfolio. The fund credits its use of the Omega Point platform with helping it improve portfolio performance and successfully raise additional capital.
Kyle Mowery, Founder and Portfolio Manager of Chicago-based long/short value fund asset manager GrizzlyRock Capital, describes how Omega Point is helping him manage factor exposures in his portfolio.
In this candid ‘first person’ case study, Bruce Garelick, Founder and Chief Portfolio Manager of Boston-based long/short equity fund Garelick Capital Partners, provides a seasoned buy-side practitioner's perspective on the critical role that factor exposure management plays towards executing a successful investment strategy.
