“Our mission is to better our existing and prospective clients’ expectations of their financial future. As we pursue that mission, we are guided by our culture and a set of principles that ensure we never forget what we stand for.
Our approach to investment management is a three legged strategy which seeks to address institutional investors and Individual investors (including high net worth individuals (HNWI). The third leg is intertwined with the first two in that it involves using Alternative investments in crafting client investment solutions.
AWM believes in research driven value investing. AWM seeks to identify assets that trade at a price below their intrinsic value with a high probability of price and value convergence. At AWM we make our investment judgments, based on the value of assets in place and consider growth assets to be speculative and inherently an unreliable basis for investing. Put bluntly, value investing to AWM means buying a business only if it trades at less than the value of the assets in place and we view growth, if it happens, as icing on the cake.
We believe that capital markets are not efficient. We also believe that market participants are not rational and exhibit behavioural biases which bring about value and price dichotomies. It is the presence of this disconnect between price and value of financial assets that we seek to exploit to the advantage of our clients. We believe that there are assets which have a high probability of price converging with value. We use our research expertise to assist clients in identifying and ultimately owning these kind of assets at the best possible price with minimal price impact in trade execution.
