Companies create wealth, not the markets
Pléiade AM is an independent asset management company founded by two investment professionals, one with an equity markets background, the other in private equity. These combined expertises bring a special positioning to Pléiade AM as a mutual fund company specialised in investing in listed securities.
The pace of business development is not that of the markets, meaning that capital investment is essentially a long-term commitment. The market is just a tool; companies - and their ability to create wealth - are our only field of investigation. Last, we invest in companies we understand.
Pléiade AM has been created on a key commitment: transparency. This may sound like an overstretched buzzword often used to hide the essential, but to us it has a true meaning in two respects: first, transparency in fees, to ensure that the interests of our investors and the management company are aligned. Second, transparency in management: we fully disclose our portfolio composition to investors. Our products are simple (equity mutual funds exclusively) and easy to understand (maximum of 30 investments of equal weight).
