OUR TEAM

At Global Gate Asset Management, we place the utmost importance on the relationship between the client and the individuals within the team. We hold the client’s best interest at heart and we promote a culture built on honesty, transparency, quality of service and performance.

We are an experienced team of investment professionals who will, above all, listen to the clients and channel the investment management solutions that best fit their profile. Our partnership with the industry’s best in class investment houses complements our product offering.

Our aim is to build and maintain a long-term and multi-generation relationship with our clients.

INVESTMENT APPROACH

We believe that solid investment returns can only be generated through a patient approach and a long term portfolio positioning. Returns are maximized during key cycles such as productivity cycles, interest rates cycles and demography among others that typically take time to materialize. Our portfolios must be calibrated based on those parameters and market expectations for those parameters. Though we do believe in market efficiency, short term market drivers and surprises are viewed as opportunities to allow for performance enhancement.
GGAM’s approach to investment uses a top-down approach, analyzing major macroeconomic trends and political events to formulate specific asset class views.
Our Top-Down views are derived through market analysis and internal discussions, macro research and various discussions with industry experts. These views are communicated to our clients on a regular basis (newsletters, ad hoc commentary on market moves).

Our core business is managing our client’s assets with accessibility, transparency, and service at the heart of what we do. We provide a single, consolidated view of assets held across various asset classes and institutions and act as the primary source of advice.

We work with top providers, carefully selected for their expertise and strong investment capabilities. Our relationships provide us with unique ideas, in-depth research and strong deal flow which are then passed on to our clients.
