Our Approach

At Sandalwood, we apply our robust academic and empirical investment lens, developed in 1990 and continually refined since – as markets change and opportunities evolve.


Our Expertise

spans a wide array of alternative strategies, including hedge funds, real estate, private equity, venture capital, and lending funds.

Each strategy or asset class is approached dynamically, with risk-adjusted return targets shaped by historical data and the evolving opportunity set.


Our Disciplined Process

is the cornerstone of our longevity. It involves comprehensive deal analysis, rigorous manager assessments, and thorough operational due diligence in our manager selection process.

We strive to invest with successful, experienced managers within each selected strategy.


Our Proprietary Operational Scoring System

evaluates key hedge fund metrics across organizational processes, internal controls, and appropriateness of systems, which supports our objective of identifying only the most exceptional managers.


Our Investment Decisions

are underpinned by deep fundamental research and robust risk analysis, which supports our objective of constructing portfolios with attractive returns, minimized correlations, and controlled volatility.

We do more than just invest – we strategically adapt.

Our investment team diligently monitors our portfolio holdings against macro trends and specific market conditions, always on the lookout for emerging opportunities that align with the standards set by our high-quality research.

We look to turn our insights into strategies – opportunistic strategies that fuel our lasting partnerships.


Our experience, vantage point, and relationships enable us to generate significant high-quality deal flow from multiple sources.
