Atrium believes that within investment markets, risk is often mispriced and is frequently misunderstood.
We believe that by implementing a disciplined investment process, underpinned by our core investment principles, we can deliver investment outcomes for clients within an efficient and responsible risk framework.
Our investment principles are the bedrock upon which we operate in order to achieve our return objectives. These include:
1. Focus First on Risk
We believe a rigorous and defined focus on risk is vital to avoid adverse outcomes and maximise investor returns. Atrium applies a consistent framework to assess and understand the individual risks associated with all investments and investment opportunities. Further, we assess the collective risk of the overall portfolio to ensure we efficiently (and rigorously) manage risks in order to achieve our desired portfolio outcomes.
2. Target Consistent Returns
We seek to achieve consistent, positive returns for our investors over time. This means we look at the upside potential but also keep an eye on the downside in order to mitigate any possible capital loss. Achieving consistent returns over time is a measurable outcome of our investment strategy, and it contributes to our overall objective of building long-term investor wealth.
3. Invest only in Quality
The inherent quality of any investment should never be underestimated. But measuring it requires a discipline in order to assess whether or not each investment meets a stringent standard. No investment will be selected unless Atrium is confident of intimately understanding each factor that may drive positive returns. We also must know what may place potential returns at risk. Atrium’s size and scale allows us to remain a truly active asset manager.
