About

Forstrong Global was founded in 2001 out of necessity. We were finding that in the industry, many were reluctant to look beyond our homegrown bias and how more often than not, they were playing a game of catch up with the economy. With our macro thematic strategies, we are able to look at the long term. Our strategies deliver safer, more predictable returns for financial professionals and their clients. Since our inception, our low drawdown, low volatility, low correlation strategies have demonstrated their ability to carefully steward our client’s assets through challenging markets and economic environments.

We invest in the idea of a better future.
