Investment Principles Guide

Introduction to AAM’s Investment Principles

In the world of investing, there are many things that we cannot control. Coming to terms with this can be a big challenge and the fear of a lack of control can deter some people from investing at all. Some of these common themes are:

  1. Can we pick winning stocks?
  2. Can we pick superior managers?
  3. Is it possible to time markets?
  4. Filtering out the noise from the financial press
  5. How do interest rates impact markets?
  6. How do exchange rates impact your returns?
  7. How does inflation impact your returns?
  8. What should I expect from market performance
