Alternative Strategies Loomis Sayles draws on its tradition of research-driven investing to develop alpha-seeking alternative strategies. Our process employs the firm’s top-down and bottom-up research expertise, collaborative culture, and sophisticated risk awareness capabilities. We foster communication among portfolio managers, research analysts and traders, an approach that promotes a holistic understanding of the factors driving global markets and individual securities. This insight helps our alternative strategies teams identify relative value and exploit idiosyncratic opportunities in their respective markets. Risk awareness is paramount to the investment process, and we seek a thorough understanding of the return drivers and risks embedded in our portfolios.
