Our Investment Philosophy
Optimum Asset Management is actively committed to maximizing its clients’ long-term returns while protecting their capital. To do so, we apply a high-tech, disciplined management approach based on thorough analysis of securities and issuers, well-defined risk management and sound investment selection.
Each of our strategies has been developed with a specific process that integrates four types of analysis (fundamental, technical, market sentiment and seasonality) with the application of specific quantitative filters. As a result, we can offer each client a portfolio with an appropriate risk-return profile.
Regardless of the objectives established, our investment philosophy allows us to offer customized, high-value-added solutions that lead our clients to Optimum results.

Given that compliance is an essential part of our clients’ trust, our Code of Ethics must be read and signed annually by all of our employees and managers. A copy of our Code of Ethics is available upon request for investors, market intermediaries and prospective clients.
