Diomedea is the genus of seabirds that include the Great Albatrosses. According to legend, the Greek hero Diomedes was driven by a storm to Italy and was stranded with his companions who were turned to birds.
The wingspans of the largest great albatrosses are the largest of any bird. Albatrosses travel huge distances with two techniques used by many long-winged seabirds: dynamic soaring and slope soaring. Dynamic soaring involves repeatedly rising into wind and descending downwind, gaining energy from the vertical wind gradient. Slope soaring uses the rising air on the windward side of large waves. The only effort expended is in the turns at the top and bottom of every such loop.
This efficient long-distance travelling underlies the albatross's success as a long-distance forager, covering great distances and expending little energy looking for food.
Like the giant albatross, we at Diomedea Capital Advisors try to efficiently soar over ever changing global asset class landscapes in pursuit of superior risk-adjusted returns.
