About Swan Global Management

Randy Swan began Swan in 1997 to pro­vide invest­ment man­age­ment ser­vices that were not avail­able to many investors. Ear­ly in his finan­cial career, Randy saw that options were a way to address invest­ment risk direct­ly, and the solu­tion that fol­lowed was the pro­pri­etary Swan Defined Risk Strat­e­gy. The DRS has pro­vid­ed his­tor­i­cal risk-adjust­ed returns that out­per­formed its S&P 500 bench­mark through a com­bi­na­tion of tech­niques that seek to pro­tect invest­ments from large loss­es and to gen­er­ate mar­ket-neu­tral income.

The Defined Risk Strat­e­gy is a poten­tial answer to many of the most press­ing chal­lenges that investors and advi­sors strug­gle with:

  • Seek­ing invest­ment return in a low-yield world
  • Min­i­miz­ing volatil­i­ty
  • Tim­ing and sequence of returns chal­lenge
  • Retire­ment income chal­lenge
  • Bear mar­ket pro­tec­tion
  • Tax effi­cien­cy

Swan Glob­al Man­age­ment is head­quar­tered in Puer­to Rico with affil­i­at­ed offices in Duran­go, Col­orado and Tam­pa, Flori­da. We feel our loca­tions away from tra­di­tion­al finan­cial hubs bet­ter allow for inde­pen­dent think­ing, giv­ing us the abil­i­ty to design and build invest­ment approach­es in mod­ern, orig­i­nal ways.
