Return Stacking

Newfound Research LLC is a quantitative investment and research firm dedicated to helping investors pro-actively unlock the benefits of diversification through return stacking. We manage alternative strategies and capital efficient solutions that allow investors to implement return stacking concepts.

What is Return Stacking?

At its core, Return Stacking is the idea of layering one investment return on top of another, achieving more than $1.00 of exposure for each $1.00 invested.

For decades, sophisticated institutional investors have thoughtfully applied leverage to include diversifying alternative strategies without diluting their core stock and bond allocations. Due to the complexity of managing derivatives, small institutions, financial advisors, and individuals have largely been locked out of this approach.

Today, professionally managed mutual fund and exchange-traded products allow investors to implement this concept.  Newfound Research is pioneering the research, product design, and portfolio construction that unlocks this opportunity for everyone.

Why Return Stacking?

  • Diversification without Sacrifice – Investors can introduce diversifying assets and strategies without sacrificing exposure to their traditional asset allocation.

  • Opportunity for Enhanced Returns – By introducing additional sources of return, Return Stacking creates the potential for outperformance, which may be particularly attractive in an environment where expected returns for traditional assets may be muted.

  • Improving Diversification – By thoughtfully introducing differentiated return streams, investors may gain a diversification advantage with the potential to reduce portfolio volatility and drawdowns.
