Pytheas Asset Management offers a diverse array of investment strategies, all of which are based on our philosophy of adding value through active management founded on sound fundamental research and proprietary analytics.

Pytheas Asset Management is a leading asset manager for institutions, individuals and financial intermediaries, worldwide. Our investment professionals are located around the world providing strategies that span a wide spectrum of asset classes including equity, cash liquidity, real estate, infrastructure, technology and private equity.

We focus on global, regional, developed, and emerging markets, plus a number of specialty products, including country and sector funds. Our investments combine local resources with access to global strategies and networks, and we continue to offer new products in response to an evolving global market and our clients' evolving needs.

Whether your interest is investment advice and strategies that seek to achieve solid risk-adjusted returns; global liquidity capabilities from one of the industry’s most insightful providers; or total retirement plan solutions that integrate the management of all of your retirement plans, we are Pytheas Asset Management and our core values are integrity, excellence and entrepreneurial spirit, respect for individuals and cultures, and teamwork.

Pytheas' Asset Management capabilities are among the best in the industry, offering a wide range of investment products and solutions for the investment issues faced by our clients throughout the world.

Pytheas Asset Management believes that the way in which money is managed must be significantly altered and aligned with a new definition of "performance" that incorporates risk management, income generation, and alpha/beta separation. The increasing institutionalization of the retail sale requires asset managers to take a new approach to third-party distribution and client service. Seizing the retirement opportunity (especially in the US and Western Europe), retooling the investment management process, reinventing retail distribution and product management capabilities, reorienting new business development toward future growth opportunities, and driving scale to generate operating leverage are the Pytheas’ key asset management initiatives and differentiators.

Also, emerging markets around the world are showing themselves to be more than simply investment opportunities. With global inflows on the rise, asset managers are turning to emerging markets to tap distribution and sales options and to source new money. The doors for asset managers are opening not just in BRIC countries and the N-11, but also in regions like the Middle East with their impressive growth rates. Double-digit growth is within reach for asset managers in South America, the Middle East, and in parts of Asia Pacific. But there’s more to market entry than just macroeconomic potential. Expanding into an emerging market, especially, requires close attention to that market and its development path, and success depends on approaches and positioning that are tailored accordingly. It is the fact that these markets are in such flux that necessitates Pytheas’ robust strategies.

We offer a range of services such as:

  • Personalized asset allocation studies;
  • Proprietary strategic research;
  • Asset/liability Management;
  • Specialized reporting and client service.

We manage a range of equity, fixed-income, asset allocation, and alternative asset class portfolios focusing on global, regional, developed, and emerging markets, plus a number of specialty products, including country and sector funds. Our investments combine local resources with access to global strategies and networks, and we continue to offer new products in response to an evolving global market and our clients' evolving needs.

How we manage money

We are proud of our results and achievements that are based on our investment beliefs of Teamwork, Multiple Processes and Transparency & Critical Thinking:

Teamwork 

We believe in attracting and retaining the most talented investment professionals in our industry. We then use their skills to build team-based investment approaches that rely on specialists working together to research companies, rate stocks and build portfolios. By stressing a team approach, we help to ensure robust decision-making and a consistent approach that is less likely to be compromised by changes in personnel. By fostering innovation, encouraging debate, and recognizing achievement, we have created an environment that challenges individuals to achieve their best performance for our clients.

Teams of experienced professionals around the world who specialize in particular asset classes, investment styles, or geographic regions make the investment decisions. We believe that strategic decisions are best made in small teams where the sharing and refinement of ideas leads to better solutions for our clients. Our investment professionals' diverse perspectives on investment strategy contribute to a richer overall understanding of markets, and lead to stronger investment decisions for our clients.

Multiple processes

We believe there is more than one way to make money in investment markets so we commit the resources to maintaining multiple processes – each one developed to exploit particularities in each market or asset class.

Pytheas Asset Management offers a diverse array of investment strategies, all of which are based on our philosophy of adding value through active management founded on sound fundamental research and proprietary analytics.

Transparency & Critical Thinking

Every Pytheas investment process is transparent, disciplined and systematic. Our investment decisions are accountable and we remain consistent in our approach.

We promote transparency, by adhering to the Pytheas Code of Ethics & Business Conduct to the letter, as to the spirit of all applicable laws and regulations. But above all, we promote critical thinking because only by the awakening of the intellect, sound judgment can be applied to our activities. Finally, we believe that tracking progress is fundamental to building the culture we aspire to in our vision.
