Ironwood SF conference room

Trusted experience,
alternative solutions.

Founded in 1996, Ironwood is 100% employee-owned with $5.9 billion under management as of 6/1/2022 and a sole focus on constructing multi-manager hedge fund portfolios with repeatable returns.

A Core Holding

Ironwood serves as a core alternative investment solution.

Through strategic diversification and reduced dependency on the equity and credit markets, our funds aim to serve as a core holding within an alternative investment allocation in an investor's portfolio.

Conservative Objective

  • Ironwood's objective is three-fold:
    • Deliver a real rate of return
    • Manage month-over-month volatility and target a low annualized standard deviation
    • Maintain a low beta to equities and fixed income

Multi-Manager

  • Our portfolio invests across a core group of complementary and non-correlated hedge fund strategies and managers
  • Top 10 managers represent about 60% to 80% of total allocations

Actively Managed

  • Our sector allocations are driven by an opportunities-first approach
  • We continually re-allocate capital to managers in the best position to execute, from well-established to earlier-stage to specialized managers

Complementary

  • Our solution is a complement to traditional equities and credit, as well as other alternative investment strategies
