Philosophy

We use common sense. It may sound simple, but there is a lack of it in the industry. Independent structure. Contrarian thinking. We focus on generating returns while trying to mitigate the risk of substantial losses.

Experience has taught us that investors can invest successfully by adhering to three basic principles.

Discipline

Is the difference between investing and trading.

Experience and history has shown that having the discipline to invest across market cycles, rather than trading to chase returns based on recent trends or market headlines, can provide the foundation upon which a portfolio can attain more consistent long-term investment returns.

AM Global seeks to generate a competitive risk adjusted return after inflation, taxes and fees by investing in an array of investment strategies across market cycles while guarding against significant losses.

Price Matters Most

Losses are hard to make up. Investors who expose themselves to significant losses require a much higher return to get back to even and may not have the flexibility to invest at the most opportune moments.

Invest With a Margin of Safety – Investing in attractively priced assets offers fundamental value and provides a margin of safety.

Spend Wisely – Prudently manage fees and taxes but with the understanding that spending less is not always better.

Don’t Get Emotional

History has shown that investors, driven by emotion, make fundamental errors of judgment at the most inopportune times based on inadequate information. We help our clients to use market emotions to their advantage by embracing three basic practices:

AVOID “THE HERD”:  We do not buy because others are buying or sell because others are selling.

“BUY FROM THE FEARFUL, AND SELL TO THE GREEDY”: We try to take advantage when investors are behaving irrationally.

DON’T GET DISTRACTED BY SHORT-TERM “NOISE”:  Making investment decisions based on market trends or the latest news leads to potentially catastrophic losses. We focus on long-term investing across full market cycles
