Boards & Committees
Director

SCHF manages a global portfolio invested in different regions and assets by investing through third party managers and pursuing direct investments. They employ an approach that has its origins in the techniques of large foundations, trusts, and endowments as well as the more opportunistic and contrarian styles of leading family offices. SCHF draws on the practice of regular rebalancing: selling as relative values and returns rise for a given asset class or manager, and simultaneously buying other asset classes and investments with managers that they regard as comparatively undervalued. Like family offices, the Adviser incorporates an emphasis on absolute, rather than relative, returns. The firm employs a number of techniques to monitor, stress-test, and manage liquidity under a variety of different potential market conditions. Among these is a liquidity ladder at the portfolio level to understand the funds' liquidity positions over time. In constructing the funds' portfolios, SCHF assembles equities, debt, and real assets. Taken in different combinations, these assets form the primary asset classes (public equity, real estate, natural resources, uncorrelated strategies, private equity, and fixed income).
