Customized Solutions

RockCreek customizes services and portfolios to suit the specific needs and objectives of each client. For some institutions this means supporting internal investment staff, for others it requires a fully outsourced investment office. Whatever the level of engagement, RockCreek assists institutions with achieving their long-term investment objectives.

Client Service Focus

Experienced in all facets of the investment-management process, RockCreek has the infrastructure in place to provide clients with a complete investment solution. We work closely with our clients to draft their investment policy statements, provide A-to-Z back-office support, implement asset allocation plans consistent with funding requirements and risk tolerance, and provide reporting to staff and Boards.

Mission-Related Investing

For institutions that seek to align their investment programs and mission, RockCreek integrates mission-related investments into the investment policy statement, asset allocation, and portfolio construction. Our strong sourcing in MRI and SRI areas has led to sector allocations in education, clean energy, fossil fuel divestment, and affordable housing.

Hedge Fund Solutions

Our hedge fund solutions comprise all major asset classes, and an array of investing styles. We have been a leader in crafting customized solutions, often involving niche opportunities, designed to meet each client’s unique needs. We also advise clients seeking to enhance their own, in-house investment capabilities.

Diversified & Specialized Strategies

Diversified strategies offer more stable returns and lower volatility through an array of asset classes, regions and industries. Strategies can also be more specialized to target potentially higher returns with greater volatility.

Emerging Managers

RockCreek’s network of relationships with emerging managers gives our clients rare opportunities for superior returns. We have been pioneers in identifying up-and-coming investment teams that have proven their ability to recognize and quickly exploit opportunities in niche markets. These managers seek out untapped pockets of value overlooked by larger firms.

New Launches

New launches provide our clients with exposure to emerging talent across asset classes, with an emphasis on managers with experience, strong pedigrees and institutional-quality infrastructure. They can offer unique opportunities that more established managers, with larger portfolios, tend to overlook.

Emerging Markets

From Asia to Latin America and Frontier Markets, RockCreek has a history of successful investing in emerging markets, thanks in part to our World Bank heritage. Our local teams provide on-the-ground knowledge on small and mid-cap companies overlooked by sell-side firms.

Emerging Markets

From Brazil to Thailand, the Rock Creek Group has a successful history of investing in emerging markets, in part due to our World Bank heritage. Our global emerging market products are managed by an experienced team with international backgrounds, each bringing their cultural perspectives and language skills to the table.

Our Approach

Every emerging country is unique, offering different opportunities and different risks. We believe an on-the-ground approach allows for the best bottom-up research and in-depth knowledge of each country. For this reason, we identify the best local stock pickers to seek out hidden opportunities. Our team frequently meets with renowned investors, policymakers, economists, and strategists to refine our macroeconomic views on countries around the world, sectors, and investment themes to place a top-down overlay on our portfolios.

Global Emerging Markets product

The RockCreek GEM product seeks to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Index by offering higher risk-adjusted returns to our clients. As market opportunities shift, our team is constantly reevaluating the best opportunities. Over the long term, we seek to capture returns in growth sectors of emerging market countries, capitalizing on under-represented names in the index. Our GEM product can be customized to fit client needs by adjusting the index.
