OUR SERVICES

“If everyone is thinking alike,
then somebody isn’t thinking”

George S. Patton

Access Equity Management Limited can implement global macro opportunistic investment strategies to capitalize on macroeconomic and geopolitical major changes in fundamentals.

As governments and central banks drive markets, this strategy turns these policy decisions into actionable trades, on a global basis, as these factors are moving markets like never before.

Buy fear and sell complacency, be very selective, never follow conventional wisdom.

Accurately determining how much information is priced into a position and establishing fair value is the key to identifying the best entry point.

Access advise on a wide range of securities for diversification expressing investment opinions frequently through liquid Exchange Trade Funds. ETFs are broad in scope and move based on systemic risk, which is not security specific, which trade on exchanges and track stock, bond and commodity indexes. ETFs offer diversification with lower management fees and higher intraday price visibility.

Understanding the Process
of Product Selection

With nearly 100 years of combined experience across the Access manager selection team, investors are afforded a sensible perspective in evaluating the ability of investment managers to preserve capital and generate excess returns.

The manager selection team conduct in-depth research, conduct face to face meetings and follow-up calls with fund managers, examining not only that their views are rational and consistent with our own, but that the structure of their funds appropriately reflect their stated strategy.

At Access, we are confident that we can find a fund with a return and risk profile that reflect the investors requirements,  across the broad range of asset classes.

A fund review is based on the following:

Philosophy – Why does the fund exist, what are the opportunities, can they generate persistent returns?

Process – How is the philosophy implemented? How are transactions identified, screened, executed and the risk managed?

Performance – Evaluated in context of risk/reward and how it performs relative to peers and benchmarks

People – Does the team instil confidence the philosophy can be followed?

Global Network to originate and experience to evaluate Opportunities

For more than 17 years, Access has focused on developing an international network of contacts, partners and colleagues to originate and introduce the broadest possible range of direct investment opportunities.

Across Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia, Access has unparalleled ability to reach key decision makers, managers, owners and advisors.

The range of opportunities permits the firm to identify relative risk and rewards on a comparative basis. The early assessment of risk factors and mitigants is a critical component of the firm’s focus on value preservation.

Legal, Accounting and trading experience afford the Access team superior execution capabilities. Professional advisor interfaces are carefully monitored and efficiently managed.

Relative Value Identification
across Geographies and Assets

Access have been active in this asset class since the firm’s inception.

Exposure to multiple markets and sub-markets permit the Access team to quickly and efficiently identify relative value opportunities.

Asset type, investment size and relative risk are essential components of the Access investment approach.
