With many of the market’s biggest names powering the rally in European equities, there has been much talk over recent weeks about whether European small and mid-caps look cheap compared to their large peers. Niall Gallagher analyses the long-term structural factors at play, suggesting that, while SMIDs are attractively valued, they really are no cheaper than their larger counterparts.

The Private Innovation Economy
25 June 2024

Don’t overthink the US election
19 June 2024

Five months ahead of the US election, the socio-political discourse has rarely been more fraught. For investors, the connection between politics and markets is natural, but evidence points to markets continuing to be largely agnostic.

Distinctive by design

Our business continues to attract original and independent thinkers, bringing their distinctive, and often unique, styles. Here at GAM, our investment professionals are encouraged to develop their ideas, leveraging our global operations and risk framework to bring rigour to each approach.  Our strategies showcase the personality, passion and expertise of our investment managers and partners. We do not try to compete in all markets but rather we focus on the hard-to-access, niche areas where specialist expertise and strong conviction can have a real impact. This has helped us curate a collection of highly-differentiated, active investment strategies for clients to use alongside their core portfolios.
