Proving an investor's investment thesis

An investor wanted to prove its chosen sectors were largely protected against market cycles. CEPRES delivered risk-adjusted alpha analysis for their sectors with beta correlation versus relevant public markets to show how its strategy held up in varying market cycles. The investor proved low beta correlation and its sectors were defensive and non-cyclical, helping to underwrite its strategy and increase its target size for fundraising.
