An Evening of Global Small Cap Investing Strategies & The Volatility Protection of Commercial Real Estate

HighView’s Global Small Cap strategy has proven to be an excellent contributor to your risk-adjusted returns.  More specifically, this small cap strategy has lowered volatility and contributed to the overall yield of your portfolio.  To help explain their investment approach and processes, we are pleased to host our Global Small Cap manager Mawer Investment Management.

HighView believes in broad diversification across various types of public market securities and private alternative investments. One of our private alternative strategies is Commercial Real Estate, which acts as a critical component to your portfolio for the enhancement of yield and reducing overall portfolio volatility.
