#11 If You Get Burned, Seek Relief
At Mawer Investment Management Ltd. we believe that risk management is just as important as generating solid returns. We strive to achieve both.
This is because "Bear Markets" cause a great deal of pain for investors who have not had an appropriate investment strategy recommended to them. They can lead to irrational decision making resulting in investors having to delay retirement plans, leaving retirement to work, and generally increasing anxiety levels.
Mawer's formula for relief is quality investments and to maintain a well-founded investment strategy suited to each investor's unique needs and circumstances. Strict discipline to this strategy during market fads and various cycles helps keep investors from being burned in the first place.
Mawer's investment professionals specialize in investment strategy for individuals, institutions, corporations, and many other investors such as foundations and not for profit organizations. All of our Portfolio Managers have attained or are working towards the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation which, in addition to being the premier professional designation in the investment industry, requires charterholders to comply with a strict code of ethics and standards of practice. This provides the basis for sound advice and a relationship built on trust.
