THE FUND

Investment Approach

This fund is open to all members of GIC and is managed by a majority vote after each stock pitch at the weekly club meeting. Every week, each desk creates a pitch to present to the club, allowing the fund to maintain optimal diversification across all industry verticals and maximize risk-adjusted returns. Our members directly benefit from exposure and participation in the idea generation process and quantitative and qualitative due diligence necessary to generate positive alpha. The members of GIC develop investment pitches across diverse asset classes and industries that are guided by the club's unifying investment philosophy — a multi-strategy long/short and global macro approach.
