IAM is an active, long-only manager which aims to provide long-term risk-adjusted returns. Their investments are based on a strong conviction that among other macro-economic trends, population dynamics, resource scarcity, inadequate infrastructure and environmental constraints will profoundly shape global markets, creating investment risks and opportunities. IAM believe the transition to a more sustainable global economy provides a helpful backdrop to construct high conviction, low turnover equity portfolios that are well positioned to achieve long term capital growth. They offer a range of thematic and unconstrained global equity strategies as well as real asset funds focused on the growth opportunity arising from a sustainable economy. IAM seek to generate outperformance over the long term by investing in the most attractive stocks identified by a research intensive, bottom-up, and stock picking process.

Lakewood Capital Management Lakewood employs a fundamental investing approach that seeks to exploit inefficient pricings in equities and fixed income securities. The firm aims to capitalize on the best risk/reward opportunities across many diverse industries, geographies and securities. Their strategies include Long Equity, Short Equity and Long Fixed Income. Lakewood Capital Management invests in stressed high grade bonds, high yield/distressed bonds, convertible notes/bonds and preferred stock. These positions are typically found in companies that are out of favor, subjected to forced selling or liquidation, undergoing an industry rationalization or fixing their capital structure despite relatively healthy underlying operations.

AIM invests in global equities, with a singular focus on achieving superior capital appreciation through the consistent and disciplined implementation of a unique value investing approach, concentrating capital and research on high conviction investments. The firm also proactively engages with management teams and boards of directors of their portfolio companies in an effort to create value through an approach they refer to as Constructive Shareholder Activism. To seek what they consider being attractive value investments that are not highly traded by other alternative investment firms, they employ a rigorous, private-equity like research process. AIM’s investment process is driven by intensive bottom-up research and collaboration of their global investment team across geographies and sectors that leverage the firm’s collective experience in the US, Europe and Asia to identify investment opportunities.
