Hedge funds optimize the risk/return ratio of a portfolio

Hedge funds are often not considered an independent asset class, but more as a way of more actively managing various asset classes. As such, they should be used to complement traditional investment strategies. They can be used to improve the diversification of a portfolio and/or increase return opportunities, as hedge funds tap into more diverse sources of return with a low correlation to other investment classes.

LGT Capital Partners has used hedge fund investments as a specific investment strategy since 1994. The firm's hedge fund competence is characterized by:

  • a comprehensive, systematic selection process, 
  • a strict risk management approach and
  • transparency, which is also achieved through numerous managed accounts.


LGT Capital Partners has access to the competitive hedge funds across a range of strategies. To date, the firm has invested in more than 150 funds and the company currently manages over USD 8 billion in hedge funds.
