Trinary Capital is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) dedicated to helping our clients reach their goals. We use a quantitative approach to help clients participate in sources of diversification normally reserved for institutions or high net worth (HNW) clients. 

Investors face a number of challenges with today’s increased opportunity set. We help the average investor sort through the myriad of new options available, with cutting edge mathematical tools and experience.  

Trinary Capital believes we help wade through those challenges with our unique investment approach, which is a combination of computation and judgement. 


Trinary Capital Believes in:  

  1. Diversification” and in a “portfolio discipline” to help clients reach their long-term goals. 
    • Why? The lack of portfolio discipline can be the biggest reason why an investor’s goals are not met. 
  2. Compensated risk” as opposed to uncompensated risk. 
    • Why? There are a host of ways to add risk to a portfolio but not all of them provide the return to go along with it. 
  3. “Alternatives as sources of diversification” first and return enhancement second. 
    • Why? Alternative investments, in general, are not automatic home runs; they are tools for diversification of risks, which necessitate an expertise to discern and to implement. 
  4. Letting computers do what they are good at and lets people do what they are good at. 
    • Why? The best outcomes are driven by both logic and judgement. Investing can be an overwhelming prospect and Trinary Capital can help an investor make the right choices given their goals and risk tolerance.  


In an investment landscape, where the choices become more exotic and esoteric by the day, the expertise and judgement at Trinary Capital can help investors become successful.
