At MitonOptimal, we strive to deliver the best possible risk-adjusted return for our clients.
While many actively managed funds are constructed with reference to a benchmark index, we believe the flexibility to invest across the market spectrum without the constraints inherent in benchmark-driven investing is the optimal philosophy for our clients.
This approach allows us to invest in the themes in which we have the highest degree of conviction and to achieve returns regardless of where we are in the economic cycle.
