IAM's Investment Philosophy

IAM’s investment philosophy has remained unchanged over its 30 year history. Solutions are based on four fundamental principles:

Focus on client objectives

All our decisions are undertaken with client goals in mind. Our tailor made portfolios (both advisory and discretionary), Fund of Funds, and the Alternative UCITS platform all share the aim of preserving client capital.

All of our solutions are alternative investments and absolute return.

Absolute commitment to identify the best managers & strategies

Proprietary research is used to identify promising investment managers which are typically non-benchmark focussed.

IAM’s qualitative and quantitative processes ensure managers are closely tracked at each stage of the investment process.

A disciplined investment process with an emphasis on risk control

IAM has a dedicated operational due diligence team with veto power over investment decisions.

In conjunction with this, IAM operates an active and pragmatic approach to risk control, employing proprietary quantitative systems which ensure IAM remains vigilant to potential problems.

Liquidity and transparency of investments

IAM has a bias for liquid strategies and demands full transparency of investments.
