A Dynamic Investment Process
Identifying not only value, but what the market is valuing.
Quantitative management – systematic, unbiased, and unemotional – can at times also be unresponsive to current market trends the way Fundamental Management can be. The Convergence Strategy employs our dynamic model, actively measuring the drivers of stock prices and adjusting the model on both the long and the short as it seeks to position the portfolio to take advantage of changing market conditions.
Added Flexibility in a Volatile and Uncertain Market
Additional Tools, Additional OpportunityBy relaxing a major constraint – the ability to short – the Convergence team is able to seek alpha in those stocks identified as having potential, as well as those stocks identified as lacking potential. The Convergence Strategy bridges the flexibility previously associated with hedge funds with traditional equity management.
Experience, and a Proven Track Record
For a journeyman to become a craftsman takes years of work and dedication. Just as a hammer in the hand of the inexperienced does not result in an heirloom, extra tools in the investment business is not a guarantee of success.
The Principals at Convergence have over 20 years of average investment experience, and importantly over 12 years of experience managing short portfolios.
The Convergence track record in long/short management now exceeds 6 years.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in midcap companies involve additional risk such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than larger capitalization companies. Small-capitalization funds typically carry additional risks because smaller companies generally have a higher risk of failure. Their stocks are subject to a greater degree of volatility, trade in lower volume and may be less liquid. The funds invests in foreign securities, which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. The funds regularly make short sales of securities, which involve unlimited risk including the possibility that losses may exceed the original amount invested. However, a mutual fund investor’s risk is limited to one’s amount of investment in a mutual fund.
Alpha is an annualized return measure of how much better or worse a fund’s performance is relative to an index of funds in the same category, after allowing for differences in risk. You cannot invest directly in an index.
