1. Beyond Track Record
When investing in the stock market, it is not only what the market will do next but it is also what the investor will do next that will determine his or her success. For example, this Fortune article showed how some investors chose Warren Buffett as their fund manager even when he was only 25 years old. The key question is would you have selected him at that time?
It takes a smart client to pick a wise fund manager. The same rationale applies in selecting CDAM as your fund manager. While our impressive track record provides comforting reassurances, over-emphasizing past performance often leads to a poor selection of fund managers.
It is of utmost importance to carefully evaluate the underlying investment philosophy of the fund manager instead of merely looking at past performance. At CDAM, we promise clients a sound, rational investment approach with the discipline and the motivation to apply them consistently.
