What we do

Our Investment Philosophy

Manager Driven Focus

IAM’s investment focus is manager driven with a research and analysis process that seeks out the best of breed managers globally. In general, we favour managers who are mid-sized and who operate within liquid markets.


IAM is committed to understanding the risks being undertaken by the manager and will only invest in managers that agree to consistently meet and explain their portfolio.

Preservation of Capital   IAM’s active and pragmatic approach to risk control and the development of proprietary quantitative systems ensures that IAM remains vigilant in preserving capital.

Diversification   In order to ensure portfolios achieve low downside correlation to the markets, IAM dedicates detailed processes to ensure an appropriate level of diversification between strategies, manager styles and underlying market exposures without over-diversifying. Currently our portfolios have an average of 15 managers.

Disciplined Framework   IAM’s qualitative and quantitative processes ensure invested managers are closely tracked at each stage, with signals alerting IAM to any issues that arise or time lines that are breached.
