Career History

HighVista Strategies utilizes proprietary risk management and asset allocation models based on mean-variance optimization techniques to produce an overall portfolio asset allocation designed to maximize portfolio Sharpe Ratio for a given level of risk. The firm focuses primarily on creating investment portfolios that are more broadly diversified than typical private investment funds by allocating capital across both traditional investment asset classes. HighVista Funds’ capital is allocated among direct and indirect investments in various asset classes based on periodic assessments of: forecasted portfolio volatility, overall market conditions, the risks of various asset classes, the correlation of asset classes with broader market indices and each other, the ability of individual third-party managers to provide superior performance, and other factors, including, among others, liquidity and trading costs.
