Hedge Fund Strategies

Too many risk models work well for long-only strategies, but fail when faced with real world hedge fund strategies. Northstar’s platform was built from the ground up with hedge funds in mind. All of our models are extensively tested in long-only, long/short and multi-asset class portfolios. After being deployed, models are continually tested against actual performance (read more).
