Pursuit of Responsible Alpha®

Pursuit of Responsible Alpha® Investment offerings that strive to provide market leading returns, with an eye towards downside risk – pursue what Destra calls Responsible Alpha®. Our experience working with the wealth management marketplace shows investing is not about periodic outperformance of an index, but rather, it is about consistent, steady returns over time. This is how true wealth is produced, preserved, and prolonged. The pursuit of Responsible Alpha® is a guiding principle to the select investment products that Destra offers.

It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune,

and when you have got it, it requires ten times as much wit to keep it.

Nathan Mayer Rothschild, 1834

Responsible Alpha® in Action

The graph below shows the importance of limiting downside losses in a portfolio. For example, a portfolio that loses 10% needs to earn 11% just to get back to it’s starting value. Take this example out further, to a 20% or 50% loss and you can see the consequences of negative compounding. By attempting to limit the downside through managing risk, investors may be able to achieve greater performance over the long-term horizon and just as importantly, have the confidence and conviction to stay invested.

The above is a graphical depiction of the return needed to offset gain/loss.
