HighVista’s Multi-Asset Alternative Strategy offers a carefully diversified and risk-managed portfolio of alternative investments, aiming to generate attractive long-term returns.

This all-weather strategy is intended to serve as a reliable core investment for broader portfolios, providing exposure to specialized alternative investments in both public and private markets. Beyond HighVista’s ability to invest across a range of areas, our investment success is driven by a strong emphasis on risk management, including thoughtful portfolio-level diversification, disciplined management of exposures, and effective tail risk mitigation strategies. Our investment team and process have withstood rigorous testing in various market stress scenarios, including the Global Financial Crisis, the COVID pandemic, and the 2022 rate shock. HighVista’s partners and their families have significant capital invested alongside clients in our multi-asset alternative strategy, creating deep alignment with our clients.
