GAM Fund Management Limited - http://www.gam.com
 
GAM is an independent, active investment management firm with an alternative perspective on the world.

GAM’s investment teams are given the authority and the tools to act decisively in the best interest of their clients.   All their managers – in-house and external – are active investors being given the freedom to invest according to their own investment philosophies and processes, without having to conform to a single ‘house style’.

Their aim is to deliver strong, long-term results for their clients using a selection of the world’s most talented investment managers. GAM seek to achieve and – wherever possible – outperform their investment objectives through an exceptional focus on both producing returns and managing risk.  Their perspective is global, insights run deep and methods are transparent. New and emerging approaches are actively embraced when GAM feels that it will give their clients better and more enduring returns.

“Active management requires not only independent thinking, but also the confident discipline to deviate from the index for sustained periods and accept short-term drawdowns as the necessary cost of achieving superior, differentiating, long-term returns.” - David M. Solo – CEO, GAM

GAM's core philosophy is "intellectually honest investment management" which means:
  • Allowing proven, talented investment professionals to make active, conviction investment decisions
  • Undertaking rigorous, bottom-up due diligence and applying continuous risk management
  • Exercising discipline, consistency and patience to produce long-term results
  • Tailoring our investment capabilities to deliver client-orientated solutions
  • Cultivating independent, forward-thinking investment approaches.
