Cambridge has a broad mission focused on building wealth for its clients through its fundamental approach to investing, which focuses on identifying value-creating businesses. Cambridge seeks to continually earn clients’ trust by exemplifying the highest standards of the wealth management industry and by investing clients’ money as it does for its own staff and their families.
Each pillar of Cambridge’s investment philosophy was conceived to help compound client wealth over the long term. Cambridge’s investment philosophy dictates how the team operates, what they stand for and what differentiates Cambridge from the competition.
Cambridge Global Asset Management’s investment philosophy is defined by three key concepts:
- Deep, bottom-up research process
