Our Philosophy

Methodical was founded in 2015 as a specialist, owner-managed asset management firm. Specialist in that Methodical would concentrate on managing equities and would do so in a focused, data-driven manner.  Owner-managed in order to ensure operational independence. Asset management firm to emphasise Methodical’s role as a pure investment manager that does not offer consultant or advisory services.

We believe that smart analysts perform even better when assisted by technology. This means that while some see today’s integrated markets as being flooded with information, we see opportunity instead of overload.

Methodical uses technology to make structural and decision-specific improvements to the overall investment process. Wherever possible, we seek to mitigate or eliminate subjective human bias. Investment decisions are driven by probabilistic and objective processes. This thread of decision-making based on objective data analysis runs true through all of our product areas.  It is investing on facts, not feelings.

We believe managing risk is a key part of generating alpha.
We challenge each other and our systems to continue evolving.
We encourage a culture of full transparency and customer-focused integrity.
