Waypoint All Weather Alternative Fund

Strategy Overview


Investment Objective

Waypoint's core public equity portfolio is designed to deliver superior risk adjusted returns across market cycles.

How We Invest

The Portfolio:

We construct a portfolio of businesses that we categorize as either "Capital Distributors" or "Capital Compounders"

Capital Distributors have a cash flow focus that translates into high dividend yields. They have aligned management teams that sustain and grow the dividends and maintain modest financial leverage to navigate difficult economic environments. They typically make up 70-90% of the portfolio.

Capital Compounders have economic models that compound capital at or above their cost of capital. Management is accelerating growth using capital available through public markets. They tend to be small-to-midcap companies not broadly covered by analysts. They typically make up 10-30% of the portfolio

Volatility Strategies Overlay:

In addition to the equity foundation of the portfolio, equity options are used to express a variety of volatility strategies depending on the market environment. For example, when volatility is low, the fund looks to purchase options to protect capital. Most often this is expressed using put options on individual securities and indices. When volatility is elevated, the fund looks to sell or write options as an equity alternative.
