Stark’s investment acumen is rooted in its sixteen-year history of organic growth and its founding principal’s twenty plus years of experience in alternative investments. Throughout the Firm’s evolution, we have been successful at attracting, retaining and developing high quality investment talent. We have extensive expertise in risk management; portfolio construction; asset valuation; securities trading; financial structuring; quantitative modeling; and credit, equity and legal analysis. These skill sets are optimized across the investment strategies shown below.
The success of Stark's multi-strategy investment approach is enhanced by our ability to assimilate and respond quickly to new information. Internal transparency facilitates firm-wide awareness of our various investment teams’ trading activities and exposures. Robust risk systems and extensive proprietary programming provide the bandwidth necessary to process information, adapt quickly to changing market conditions and measure risk at various levels: trader; team; region; portfolio or Firm. As a multi-asset manager, we believe our ability to dynamically reallocate capital across all asset classes and strategies to the most attractive investments is a crucial strategic edge in a world of quickly shifting opportunities.
