Sterling aims to provide long-term consistent investment performance and exceptional client service.


Our Goal

As an objectives-based investment manager, what matters most to us is providing attractive risk-adjusted returns to the assets you place in our trust.

To achieve this, our primary goal is defining and managing acceptable risk. We believe success in today’s often unpredictable markets requires equal parts experience, consistency, agility, and the ability to evaluate all the risks and opportunities inherent in a given investment. We subscribe to the adage of “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Over the years, we’ve found that our approach helps us deliver consistent risk-adjusted performance over time.

Sterling offers distinct investment teams with a common goal to generate strong risk-adjusted returns.
