OUR INVESTMENT PROCESS

We combine on-the-ground, primary research with fundamental macroeconomics to generate compelling investment themes. We relentlessly test our investment ideas against real time market triggers and current events. This single, thematic framework informs virtually everything we do, driving the high-level of confidence, courage and conviction that seeks to yield superior investment returns across the liquidity spectrum.

Our Investment Strategies

LIQUID GLOBAL MACRO

In November 2003, Autonomy launched its flagship absolute return strategy. The liquid global macro strategy targets a diversified opportunity set of global exposures across the major macroeconomic asset classes. With an opportunity set including over 70 countries, the strategy is diversified between developed and emerging markets. The fundamental, thematic strategy typically results in 5-15 themes which generally have time horizons between 3 and 24 months.

REAL ESTATE

Born as an extension of the firm’s macroeconomic views, Autonomy opportunistically offers real estate investment strategies.

Brazil

Autonomy first began its opportunistic investing in real estate in 2006 based on a high conviction macroeconomic view on Brazil. Founded in 2006 and based in São Paulo, Autonomy Investimentos Ltda. is an established Brazilian real estate management firm specializing in the acquisition, retrofit, development, and management of office and logistics enterprises located in Brazil’s major urban markets.

Spain

In December 2012 we started to explore unique opportunities in what we believed would be an upcoming revitalization of the Spanish economy and the Spanish real estate market. We developed a Spanish presence to focus on acquiring and managing high quality properties in prime locations.

SPECIAL SITUATIONS

Autonomy’s thematic investment process often yields opportunities better suited to less liquid, special situation or private equity-like structures. Strategically, Autonomy seeks to work with investors who have the ability/willingness to pursue such relationships.
