Our Approach

IT’S NEVER WISE TO ACCEPT CONVENTIONAL WISDOM.

We believe when people make decisions, it’s with a limited vision of the future in mind and that the traditional approach to investing, no matter how well designed and well intentioned, includes unavoidable bias in the stock selection process. This is mostly because of the influence of human emotions on these decision-making processes.

That’s why at Methodical Investment Management, we combine world-class financial modeling and extensive financial expertise to better harvest alpha from financial markets.

EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT

INVIVIDUAL COMMITMENT IS THE KEY TO A HIGHLY-EFFECTIVE TEAM.

We’re not your typical investment managers. We’re a team of self-propelled individuals, agile and untraditional, yet meticulous and results driven. We challenge everything and strive to constantly innovate in our relentless quest to better the intelligent systems that shape our clients’ investments.

Our DNA

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
THE FACT THAT WE’RE NOT TRYING TO BE DIFFERENT

We constantly challenge everything, even our own conclusions. That’s why we don’t rely on hunches, rumours and speculation. We trust our systems and our navigators, but don’t shy away from disrupting these methods, if and when necessary.

We are paradigm shifters, mould breakers and disruptors of the status quo. We accept our idiosyncrasies. No, we purposefully embrace them. It’s the only way we can truly innovate and commit to the prosperity of our clients.
