Why CGOV?

The CGOV Difference

Constructing investment portfolios is about more than simply buying shares in the stock market. It demands a thorough understanding of each client and a customized approach to meet that client’s needs. Investing requires a true appreciation that stocks are not merely pieces of paper, but ownership in underlying businesses.

CGOV Asset Management believes that a superior equity portfolio can be built by investing in a focused number of companies run by great management teams diversified across globally recognized industry sectors. As conservative investors we must diversify, but as effective investors, we must focus and diversify wisely. This has been our investment philosophy since 1995 - no matter the market cycle.

Key CGOV Asset Management characteristics support our investment philosophy:

  • Our People. Our portfolio managers have on average more than 21 years of financial services experience. Our investment team has remained intact since 1997, managing client portfolios through multiple market cycles.
  • Our Process. We believe that the disciplined and repeatable CGOV Asset Management process increases a client’s probability of long term success.
  • Our Size. We purposely limit the number of clients we work with in order to maintain a high standard of client service.
  • Our Stability. Team turnover at CGOV Asset Management is very low. We have a stable and sustainable ownership structure and all partners share a long term commitment to the firm.
