Long/Short Hedge Fund
The Tech Bust. The Global Financial Crisis. The Crescat Long/Short Hedge Fund strongly outperformed during two of the worst bear markets in history. Investors in the Long/Short Fund value the fund’s strong risk-adjusted returns, achieved with a focus on long and short equities.
Precious Metals Hedge Fund
Crescat’s newest strategy. This fund will devote a substantial allocation of its capital to activist positions in the gold and silver mining industry. Different than our Precious Metals SMA, we accomplish this through negotiated private placement investments in public companies that can come with activist perks such as discounts, warrants, and anti-dilution rights.
Large Cap SMA
Crescat’s longest running strategy. Crescat Large Cap is a value oriented, long only, large cap equity separately manged account strategy that has outperformed the S&P 500 over multiple business cycles. The manager can hold a portion of the portfolio in cash and/or precious metals during expected market downturns. The strategy combines Crescat’s macro themes with bottom-up stock picking supported by the firm’s proprietary equity model.
Precious Metals SMA
A key part of any discerning investor’s asset allocation. An actively managed portfolio of gold and silver mining stocks to navigate a variety of economic environments. Low correlation to common Wall Street offerings. High long-term return potential with inflation and recession protection.

It is considered representative of the US stock market at large. It is a market-cap-weighted index of the 500 largest and most liquid companies listed on the NYSE and NASDAQ exchanges.
