About Our Website

Throughout this site, you’ll find historic pictures of letter carriers, messengers, and postal workers. These images remind us of a time when consumers interacted with brands in a 1:1 way. The letter carrier came to your door, the Milkman was a regular visitor, and everyone knew your name at the barber shop. We want to call advertisers back to a time when brand experience was personal: from one human to another. When we set out to create a personal ad experience for everyone on the Internet, we were thinking about turn-of-the-century bike messengers and the pony express.

An investment management firm focused on long term thematic global macro investing.


Investment Philosophy

Balestra Capital believes that fundamental economic, political and social factors are the ultimate determinants of global asset prices and investment returns. Nevertheless, securities markets are consistently subject to boom to bust cycles that operate for extended time periods with little regard for these fundamental factors. Balestra Capital believes that investment capital should be allocated across the broad asset classes in light of these macro factors in a risk limited manner in order to generate investment returns and preserve capital. Balestra Capital believes that these factors can be objectively analyzed and that large and consistent mispricings can be identified. Balestra Capital constructs portfolios that consistently reflect these mispricings in a risk controlled and hedged fashion.
