More About Swan Global Investments

Learn about Swan Glob­al Invest­ments, our orga­ni­za­tion, invest­ment phi­los­o­phy and inno­v­a­tive Defined Risk approach to invest­ment man­age­ment.

An Innovative Approach to Grow Wealth by Addressing Risk

Randy Swan start­ed Swan Glob­al Invest­ments in 1997 as a way to sup­ply invest­ment man­age­ment ser­vices that weren’t avail­able to most investors. Ear­ly in his finan­cial career, Randy saw that options pro­vid­ed a way to min­i­mize invest­ment risk.

His inno­v­a­tive solu­tion was the pro­pri­etary Swan Defined Risk Strat­e­gy, which has pro­vid­ed mar­ket-lead­ing, risk-adjust­ed returns through a com­bi­na­tion of tech­niques that seek to hedge the mar­ket and gen­er­ate mar­ket-neu­tral income.

Actively Seeking Investors’ Best Interests

At Swan Glob­al Invest­ments, every­thing we do, from our invest­ment phi­los­o­phy to our process and invest­ment deci­sions, is to serve the best inter­ests of long-term investors in a way that Wall Street hasn’t.

We believe Mod­ern Port­fo­lio The­o­ry and asset allo­ca­tion is lim­it­ed and only part of the solu­tion, and that stock selec­tion or mar­ket tim­ing is dif­fi­cult to con­sis­tent­ly exe­cute over time to out­per­form the mar­ket.

We refuse to accept that large loss­es and mul­ti-year recov­er­ies are nec­es­sary con­se­quences of mar­ket risk. Instead, “by active­ly seek­ing to not lose big, we believe investors will be bet­ter off in the long run.” (Randy Swan, Founder, CEO and Lead PM)

Buy, Hold, and Hedge

While investors are often told to ‘buy and hold’, research from Dal­bar, Inc. and oth­er sources repeat­ed­ly show that investors find it dif­fi­cult to know when to buy, and in volatile times they find it dif­fi­cult to hold, often lead­ing investors to ‘buy and fold’.

Instead of ‘buy and hold’ our invest­ment phi­los­o­phy is to buy, hold, and hedge.  By remain­ing ‘always invest­ed, and always hedged’, our Defined Risk Strat­e­gy seeks par­tic­i­pa­tion in upside moves in equi­ty mar­kets, while reduc­ing loss­es in bear mar­kets, to smooth returns over full mar­ket cycles so investors remain invest­ed and on track towards their goals.

Less Bureaucracy, More Access

Swan Glob­al Invest­ments is head­quar­tered in Duran­go, Col­orado with addi­tion­al offices in Tam­pa, Flori­da and Puer­to Rico. We believe in acces­si­bil­i­ty and trans­paren­cy and our advi­sor clients can speak direct­ly to the Swan invest­ment man­agers imple­ment­ing the Defined Risk Strat­e­gy. We avoid mul­ti­ple lay­ers of man­age­ment to pro­vide supe­ri­or cus­tomer ser­vice. In addi­tion, our Duran­go head­quar­ters removes us from the herd men­tal­i­ty and tra­di­tion­al invest­ment approach­es that per­vade big­ger firms in major met­ro­pol­i­tan areas.
