At Sungarden we are hedged investors, but not a hedge fund. Using a variety of tools, we prioritize the management of volatility.

We run distinct investment strategies, each with a different primary objective:

  • Capital Preservation
  • Cash Flow
  • Long-Term Growth


Our strategies are comprised of individual stocks, supplemented with a small number of specialized ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds) and/or mutual funds to complete the portfolio.



  • Deep investment experience over twenty five years across different market conditions.
  • A business person’s approach to investing: we prioritize the management of market volatility and invest to real-life objectives, not to superficial benchmarks.
  • A proprietary investment communications system, designed to keep our clients informed about what impacts their wealth.
