The liquid asset management unit of Leste focuses on diverse, specialized and complementary investment themes.

With a wide range of strategies, implemented by highly qualified and experienced investment professionals, Leste Global Investments seeks consistent absolute value creation, fully aligned with the risk profile and expected returns by investors.



Value Proposition

Portfolio manager selection is determined by their capacity to generate above average returns, based on low correlation strategies at either normalized or volatile market conditions.

We believe diversification provides flexibility and transparency in the asset allocation under different investment horizons, allowing the principles of risk attribution and risk control to serve the dual purpose of capital preservation and performance optimization.
