The firm’s Investment Committee is responsible for the oversight of the firm’s portfolios and manages a thorough process for vetting discretionary and quantitative investment strategies. Investment Committee members manage and oversee the various departments within the firm. The Investment Committee meets formally each month to determine portfolio allocations and meets throughout each month as necessary to discuss ongoing issues that may arise.
The members of the Investment Committee are also members of the firm’s Risk Committee, which meets daily to review position-level information and related risks for each of the firm’s strategies within the context of prevailing market conditions. The daily Risk Committee process is designed to inform members of the firm’s senior management team of the various risks to which the firm is exposed and, if appropriate, the Risk Committee will effect a reduction in risk within a particular strategy, or across a specific portfolio of strategies.
In addition to maintaining a compliance department staffed by members of Ischyros’s legal department, Ischyros utilizes a Compliance Committee with overall responsibility for monitoring compliance with the policies and procedures detailed in the firm’s Compliance Manual and Code of Ethics as well as other matters that it believes are within its oversight. The firm’s Compliance Committee, made up of senior representatives from Trading Services, Legal and Ischyros’s management team, meets on a monthly basis to review all compliance-related issues that require firm-wide cooperation, including trading efficiency and best execution. The members of this committee are also members of Ischyros’s Valuation Committee, which is responsible for reviewing any deviations from Ischyros’s valuation and pricing policies.
