Investment Philosophy of MGAM
MGAM’s investment management philosophy rests on basic principles that have stood the test of time and provided healthy and regular performance across all stock markets worldwide. They are:
MGAM only accepts to manage portfolios that are earmarked to be invested over a period of 10 to 15 years. This matches the investment management objective, which aims at managing a regular performing portfolio over the long term. Best results are always achieved with a long-term investment objective.
MGAM’s portfolios are also invested with the objective of minimizing risks elements. Great care in constructing a well-diversified portfolio that limits the volatility associated with specific securities risk, currencies, economic sectors and geo-political risk.
Prudent approach to management
In addition to laying the foundations of a portfolio based on the criteria mentioned above, their investment management approach aims at limiting the portfolio risks inherent to exogenous factors (such as world events), and to also take opportunities as and when they occur. MGAM combines a core and an active style of investment management, in view of optimising the portfolio returns in function of the market environment.
MGAM offers a service that is not a “black box”, but a completely transparent means of investing anywhere in the world. MGAM’s policy is to provide its clients an investment management report on a regular basis which provides details of its performance as well as income and expenses linked to its management. MGAM is therefore able to provide a service which is based on a close relationship with its clients and focused on their changing needs.
