DAM conducts in-house research and has a strong global research network. Their investment management philosophy is based on a mid-to-long-term perspective in which they try to identify hidden values which are not yet fully recognized in the market. The firm takes a balanced approach emphasizing both fundamental and quantitative analysis. DAM's basic assumption is that the market is not fully efficient and they employ a coherent investment process through organizational support at each phase of their 'Plan', 'Do' and 'Review' policy. They pursue stable excess mid-to long-term returns through suitable risk control, which they separate from investment management to ensure that the risk control system adequately monitors their investment process.
