About Constrained Capital

Turning macro and geopolitical trends into distinct investment ideas.


We use our experience to add value to investor portfolios.

25 years of Wall Street experience has afforded the Constrained Capital team numerous insights into the industry and a great understanding of how opportunity reveals itself. We believe as investor demand for ESG investing evolved, Wall Street found a financial incentive to create new businesses which resulted in investment management products with high fees catering to this new demand. After years of top-down and bottom-up analysis, we crystalized our investment thesis and got to work on the Constrained Capital ESG Orphans Index.

Constrained Capital was created with a goal to capitalize on opportunistic situations in the markets impacted by capital constraints in the public markets.

We Are Opportunistic
