Stratton Street Capital's Managing Partner Andrew Main has decades of experience in finance and hedge funds. One of the most exciting and challenging episodes of his career was the rebuilding of Stratton Street Capital's AUM after the 2008 crisis – despite the stellar performance of their Asian Bond Fund which was up 59%. During this process, the firm's investor base shifted from fund of hedge funds to advisors. Stratton Street is known for its expertise in Fixed Income and has drawn the attention of an international investor base for innovative funds like the New Capital Wealthy Nations Bond Fund or their pioneering Renminbi Bond Fund. The New Capital Wealthy Nations Bond Fund, for example, invests in issuers with the greatest ability to pay debts avoiding highly indebted regions with unsafe Net Foreign Asset positions. This is in contrast to many bond indices and other bond funds who are, characteristically, overweight creditors to those "most indebted” countries and companies. Main believes it is prudent that investors consider exposure to currencies like Singapore $ or the Renminbi. Like the development of the Eurodollar market over a generation ago, the Renminbi market will be a key element for global bond markets for the next 20 years. Main also shares his outlook and implications on the future of the offshore Renminbi (CNH) market. Stratton Street Capital was founded in August 2000 and specializes in Asian Alternative Investment Funds, including Asian Fixed Income Funds, Long/Short Japanese Equity Funds and Synthetic Warrant Funds.
