Modern institutional infrastructure for small funds

Global fundamental value fund

As the former #1 Institutional Investor (II) ranked Chief Investment Officer at Morgan Stanley, Steve Galbraith made his career espousing the value of combining quantitative and fundamental philosophies. But when he left Maverick Capital to create Herring Creek Capital, he left behind one of the most efficient, effective, expensive and technologically rich environments on Wall Street.

The Challenge:

Institutionalizing portfolio decisions.

  1. Tight Budget: The had a limited budget to support the investment team.
  2. Emphasize Differentiation: To compete with bigger teams, they wanted to emphasize the strong collaborative nature of their small team and investment process (we are better and can do more), but current processes were fragmented & siloed – financial models, notes and emails were in multiple locations and strong collaboration was difficult to to prove to investors.
  3. Maximize Efficiency: As a small team, they wanted to be tech-forward – they had to organize their investment process, monitor their intelligence, and take action much better than funds with greater resources, but were concerned about changing their process, as no commercial solution could be configured to their specific requirements.

The Solution: 

The EDS Platform

A formal, measurable process that aligns investment decisions with conviction and return, significant time savings without having to re-engineer institutional processes, and a feedback loop to promote continuous improvement.

  1. Centralized workflows and data in an intelligent platform that could rapidly assess their current portfolio, streamline research processes, and analyze past decision & inputs to drive continuous improvements.
  2. EDS was more affordable, easy-to-use and more flexible than competitive solutions.
  3. Configured to their specific requirements/workflows: Comprehensive dashboards that integrate information from across sources, coupled with a digital, systematic process – built to mirror the process already in place across Idea Generation, Portfolio Construction and Risk Management.

EDS Value

Client Speak

Since we implemented some quantitative changes in tracking expectations around quarterly earnings, cumulatively we have added almost 800 basis points of alpha in our short security selection.

No question. EDS has helped us create increased alpha and stronger discipline.
