For VAM, alternative investments are assets that can be purchased that generate returns that have little to no correlation with what happens on Wall Street. These are real assets whose value does not rise and fall with the day’s news, political unrest, or “flash crashes”. By directly investing in companies and not investing in “markets” controlled by third parties, we are able to exert a modicum of control over how our assets perform.
We believe that investing should be a simple and easy process to understand. Find a company that is in a new or undervalued industry or market, make sure that the management team has experience, and most importantly, make sure that the company is profitable. Following these criteria allows VAM to generate positive returns for our clients.
