Clime Asset Management focuses on delivering absolute returns to its clients. Most fund managers will focus on providing returns to their clients which outperform a chosen index. In years when the markets perform well this strategy produces satisfactory results. In years where the market has a negative return the manager can still produce a negative result and still have done what they said they would do.
At Clime we believe that it is important to try and deliver a steady consistent return to our clients. This allows the power of compounding to work to clients’ advantage. While Clime may not always be able to achieve their aim, the focus on absolute returns forms a deep part of the fabric of our investment philosophy and process.
