Hedged Public Market Strategies

HighVista’s Hedged Public Market Strategy aims to achieve strong risk-adjusted returns while maintaining low net exposure to the global equity market. This strategy strives to combine high alpha investments with diverse approaches, providing exposure to a seasoned portfolio of limited capacity and access-constrained specialist managers. Our investment approach is to focus on markets that we believe are less efficient, offering higher potential for generating alpha. We partner with investors who we believe possess a unique edge in their respective spaces. By leveraging our expertise in identifying and working with skilled partners, we seek to deliver superior investment outcomes for our clients.
