If we look at the past two decades, we can see a pattern of economic events that impact the market. When that occurs, it becomes critical to have a system in place to let you view, understand and manage that volatility. The development of technology solutions, like Cobalt LP, has made it easier for investors to scale their investments and themselves in preparation for unpredictable markets.
