VAM offers:

A unique opportunity for advisers and their clients

  • to access world class fund managers usually only available to financial institutions or the wealthiest individuals
  • to benefit from focused managers concentrating purely on producing excellent returns that build and preserve wealth

VAM FUNDS - BREAKING THE INVESTMENT MOULD

 

VAM is a specialist investment firm that uses its experience, expertise and flair to access some of the industry’s most talented global fund managers on behalf of its clients.

VAM strongly believes that some of the world’s best fund management resources are to be found in the smaller, specialist investment houses outside of the mainstream.

VAM’s business has been built on a continuing pursuit of fund management excellence, combined with a first class service to its clients. It was founded on these principles in 2001 and has gone on to build strong relationships with some exceptional fund managers. This approach has in turn developed into a strong distribution base that spans Europe, Asia, the Middle East, South America and Africa.

 
THE VAM FUNDS APPROACH
 
Even before establishing VAM in 2001, VAM’s founding directors were very aware that advisers and their clients were becoming increasingly frustrated by the constraints of the mainstream fund management industry, where many of the biggest and best known names seemed to be as much committed to distribution and asset gathering as they were to their investors’ core objectives of building and preserving wealth.
 
VAM has identified and secured access to a more specialist pool of fund management talent who are, above all else, devoted to the creation of outstanding investment returns for their investors.
 
Interestingly, the world-class fund managers VAM has identified work in smaller, specialist businesses, focusing purely on investment management and providing excellent returns. These talented, highly-focused individuals have often worked for larger fund management houses before gravitating into smaller, specialist operations where they are able to return to their core skills: analysing markets, picking stocks and generating above average fund performance.

Many of the fund management companies are structured to deal only with a small number of the wealthiest private investors. Through its strong relationships with these specialist companies, VAM has been able to bring its offerings to the ordinary investor.
 
This achievement, along with the diverse structure of the VAM business model, will greatly benefit advisers and their clients to assist them in planning and securing their future.
