Our forensic analytical approach aims to transcend common behavioural biases and conflicts that plague the investment industry.

We are an independent Sydney based boutique firm that provides quantitative solutions to global asset managers, asset owners and investors across Australia, Asia, North America and Europe. Our analytical framework is anchored in behavioural and data science. We are a team of experienced ex-portfolio managers, data scientists, actuarial professional and engineers.

Why Foresight

1. Independent – we do not sell investment products or charge asset based fees to our clients. Our fee-for-service or subscription based business model allows us to price our work on the basis of value add and complexity, not how much money our clients manage. Our business model is unique in the industry.

2. Research driven – our advisory and due diligence work is underpinned by thorough research using cutting edge techniques and tools. While our analytical framework is data and science driven, we apply a good level of human judgement, experience quality-based insights in our analysis.

3. Technology enabled – technology and data is at the centre of everything we do. We have invested significantly into data, technology and digital tools so we can deliver interactive, unbiased and transparent decision tools to our clients.

4. Long term focused – we genuinely believe that time-arbitrage is one of the key sources of outperformance in investment markets. We take long term perspective in our analysis and our judgement is not clouded by short-term performance pressure.

5. Finance with a purpose – we are passionate about building a sustainable financial system that provides for more than just financial returns. We integrate financial and extra-financial information in our decision making and help our clients navigate through the complexity of emerging measurement challenges in the sustainable space. We believe that generating social and environmental returns along side financial returns is achievable with a well thought-out investment strategy.
