An Integrated Platform
With our heritage as a hedge fund consultant and as a large institutional investor ourselves, our approach to hedge fund investing has been developed to solve the very same issues faced by other hedge fund investors – how to increase transparency and control, decrease costs, understand and aggregate manager data, and gain access to differentiated, high quality hedge fund return streams.
To address these needs, we launched our managed account platform in 1998 as an alternative way of investing in hedge funds for the portfolios we managed.
We have used our accumulated experience to refine our approach by investing heavily in our platform and its capabilities. This approach has led us to become one of the largest buy-side, hedge fund managed account platforms in the world at US$ 17.3bn*, with over 390* managed accounts launched.

Why managed accounts?
Our managed account platform is built on the following core principles.
Transparency and flexibility
CUSTOMISEABLE WORK SPACES
Designed to allow you to tailor your workspace according to your reporting requirements. Clarus lets you take control.
Advanced charting capabilities allow you to add comparisons, lower charts and quickly change timeframes, all while giving you instant access to the data you are interested in.
INTUITIVE DRAG & DROP INTERFACE
Customise your space quickly and intuitively by simply dragging and dropping your selected modules around each space. We have also integrated drag & drop interface elements into a few key modules to speed up workflow.
MAXIMUM MOBILITY FROM DESKTOP TO TABLET
Clarus will work just as well on a tablet as your dual monitor office computer, automatically re-sizing and adjusting your modules for the best readability at most sizes.
CHANGE RESEARCH FOCUS WITH A SINGLE CLICK
We created modules that allow you to quickly flow from historical data to comparisons at the click (or tap) of a button. The custom timeframe you have selected in the first state will carry over to the second.
DIVE INTO UNDERLYING CONTENT QUICKLY
In Clarus you can have transparency on each fund and/or portfolio you are invested in. The modules provide an easy way to move from a fund to its underlying instruments quickly and easily.
TOGGLE BETWEEN PORTFOLIO AND FUNDS RAPIDLY
An accessible portfolio and fund rail on the left-hand side of the tool allow you to easily select the investment tool of your choice.
CREATE LINKED MODULES
Along with the ability to customise spaces to your work style, you will also be able to link individual modules together to view the same fund or portfolio.
