Ferretto Capital is a professionally-run Family Office that focuses on generating consistent long-term returns by allocating into a globally diversified portfolio of funds, with a focus on alternatives.
With a team of experienced fund managers and allocators, we combine a process-driven, institutional investment approach with the nimbleness of a family office.
Our goal is to provide our investors with consistent returns and predictable cash flows, irrespective of market and economic conditions. To accomplish this, we invest in a portfolio of funds that is diversified across asset classes, regions and strategies with differing underlying risks and returns drivers.
Consistent return and
predictable cash flow
We are alpha-seeking. We do not reward beta and do not invest based on trends or macro predictions. We look to find skilled managers whose superior returns are not reliant on market beta, but rather on sourcing, selection, portfolio construction, superior analysis, risk management, and other quantifiable skills. We are transparent in communicating our investment process and our goals, and aim to build long lasting relationships with the managers that we invest in.
Differentiated strategy and
proven source of alpha
Alpha Manager Selection
We invest in both liquid and private market funds, including a range of hedge fund strategies (absolute return, quantitative strategies, long-short, macro and event driven), venture capital and private equity, private and alternative credit, real estate and infrastructure, as well as, uncorrelated strategies such as litigation finance and life settlements.
We invest globally, but with emphasis on developed markets.
Deep experience and understanding of alternative asset classes
We take a systematic approach to diversifying our risk. Each asset class has its own underlying risk exposure as well as its own return and cash flow profile. We focus on creating a portfolio that is well balanced from a cash flow perspective and diversified across our risk matrix, including liquidity, crowding, inflation, growth, emerging market,
use of leverage, and downward economic growth.
