 Investment Philosophy

Ayaltis implements a fundamental top-down value identifying strategy paired with a stringent bottom-up approach to investing, where downside risk assessment is central to each investment decision. We target opportunities with asymmetric expected returns, where we believe the potential upside far outweighs the potential downside.

Alignment of Interest with Investors

The company was founded by very experienced hedge funds professionals with an excellent track record of creating superior risk-adjusted returns. Our firm is managed and majority owned by the partners and the employees. In this way, we seek to ensure the closest possible alignment of client and firm interests, supported by robust risk management discipline and operational structure.
