Risk Management

U.S. Investment & Capital Group , Inc. promotes and fosters a strong culture of risk management at every level within the firm:
Investment – Economic and market exposures Operational – People and processes Legal/Regulatory – Partners with Compliance, Legal and Audit teams Under the direction of Steve Lee, President director and chief risk officer,
the goal of the risk management team is to provide a consistent and unbiased framework for analyzing and balancing risk in our clients’ portfolios. 
In doing so, we work with the portfolio management teams to monitor and review the risk profile of their respective investment strategies.
In addition to investment performance, we believe risk management is a critically important component for our investment portfolios.
Performance must be balanced with the appropriate risk controls.
Our portfolio managers adhere to a consistent, disciplined investment style coupled with a specific risk management process to optimize performance for our clients. Within each investment mandate, each portfolio team is responsible for its own investment process, strategy, and tailored risk controls. The risk management group works to ensure that mandate-specific and firm-wide aggregate risk exposures are appropriate.

While the risk management team operates independently of the portfolio management teams, interaction between the teams is an ongoing process. Risk management and representatives from each investment management team meet frequently on both a formal and informal basis to discuss consistency within mandates, current economic and capital market themes, interest rate and yield spread movements, and sector allocations.
Risk management team members are embedded on all firm investment and operational governance committees.
We view risk management as an integral and continual process that offers benefits and insights for our firm and our clients.
