Gramercy Consulting Group LLC (“GCG”) strives to provide clients with superior risk-adjusted investment returns with a short- to medium-term absolute return (wealth preservation) return focus. GCG firmly believes that it is necessary to align its interests with those of its clients and therefore the principals of the firm invest a substantial portion of their liquid net worth in the investment strategies being managed or recommended. GCG strives to avoid the conflict of interest pitfalls that have plagued the financial services wealth management industry for most of the past decade by offering transparency of fees and investments and an alignment of client and investment advisor interests.
GCG firmly believes that the passive investment strategies popularized by financial theorists in the past are insufficient to provide the necessary protections to wealth preservation due to the increasing prevalence of asset price bubbles and the high velocity of capital flows in this era of active investment management – particularly by investment banks and hedge funds. Investors need to have the flexibility and knowledge to go either long or short investment markets, as well as have the ability to employ modern portfolio construction techniques that take advantage of the attractive investment characteristics of ‘alternative’ investment markets such as currency and commodity markets, international equity markets, and sector specific investment vehicles.
GCG also firmly believes that any good firm in “Corporate America” should be a good citizen in the community and should give something back to help those in greater need. As such, GCG policy is to donate a percentage of net income each year to causes that GCG believes are important to the world and to the community at large.
