Quote of the Day: We Fundamentally Differ From The Pack

Hedgeye Risk Management’s CEO Keith McCullough’s comment in his morning macro presentation speaks to some our latest messaging:

“Don’t forget, people have to chase — you don’t have to do that with your own money — that’s certainly a dynamic of being in the business of running money. A: you have to have money to run, or money to manage, and B: you’re chasing performance.”

While we at PWA indeed “run, or manage, money”, we fundamentally differ in our view of our purpose as a money management firm. 

We wholly reject the notion that we exist to beat the market (although, while not our goal, certainly on a risk-adjusted basis [over the long-term], that’s our expectation), or to beat “the competition” — that’s a “value” system that can absolutely lead to ruin. 

We exist to manage our clients’ portfolios in the most prudent manner possible; a manner that reflects our assessment of the risk/reward market environment at any given time.

Me from our latest video commentary:

“As long as we are doing what makes sense based on fundamental reality, I think we can all sleep at night.”
