Who we are
Established in 1983, GAM is an independent, active investment manager, delivering investment solutions to private clients, charities, institutions and intermediaries from offices in financial centres around the world. Part of GAM Holding AG (Listed on the SLX Swiss Exchange), GAM has over 760 full time staff and offices in London, Zurich, New York, Hong Kong, Dublin, Bermuda and Lugano. Previously owned by UBS (1999-2004) and Julius Baer Group (2004-2009), GAM de-merged from Julius Baer in October 2009. Our sole activity is asset management and our style is active.
What we do
Our aim is to deliver strong, long-term returns for our clients through some of the world’s most talented investment managers.
We seek to achieve and outperform their investment objectives through an exceptional focus on both producing returns and managing risk. Our client assets under management span a range of investment strategies across discretionary portfolio management, equities, fixed income and alternative investments.
We are passionate about active management; all our managers – in-house and external – are active investors who have the freedom to invest without having to conform to a single ‘house style’. The common threads that link them are their specialist investment talent, disciplined investment approaches, intense focus on risk and alignment of interests with clients. Because active investing is about taking well-considered risks, we provide them with extensive risk management and modelling tools and we monitor them with independent oversight from a dedicated risk team.
We are proud to have an alternative perspective on the world and an entrepreneurial approach that embraces new thinking when we believe it will deliver sustainable returns for clients. It is our focus on performance, risk management, uncompromising investment standards and partnership with our clients that enables us to deliver long-term results.
