Kensington believes that alternative assets should be considered for every investment portfolio, and that all investors should have access to these investments. Institutional investors such as pension funds and professional asset managers, as well as high net-worth individual investors, hold Kensington funds in their portfolios. The Kensington funds are designed to provide investors with a diversified portfolio of top performing alternative investments that are otherwise unavailable in the public markets.
The markets for these alternative assets are less efficient than for traditional stocks and bonds, and require a different set of analytic and management skills. Success in these markets requires extensive relationships for sourcing the best opportunities, the ability to identify and build relationships with the strongest entrepreneurs and the expertise to work alongside portfolio companies, funds and project managers to create and sustain long-term value. Kensington Managing Directors bring more than 100 years of collective experience in these markets to work for our investors every day.
Across each of our asset classes, Kensington believes that the most important factor for investment success is the quality of the individual entrepreneurs and fund managers leading their teams. We see ourselves in the long-term relationship business, creating business partnerships where we find the most promising opportunities for long-term value creation.
