Vimco is an active investor focused on achieving above average returns relative to the stock market. Many banks and asset managers employ a fixed framework of generic investment categories and strategies from which they do not deviate. Vimco distinguishes itself from these parties by not committing in advance to a top-down approach of certain (combinations of) asset classes, but by applying a bottom-up approach and responding to stock market opportunities.
The leading Vimco research team has a global footing and selects companies that are undervalued on the stock market based on some clear characteristics. These are primarily medium-sized companies in the industrial-, consumer goods- and services sectors that are financially healthy. These companies have an attractive, predictable cash flow and are undervalued compared to their intrinsic value. Via a strict stock purchasing / sales discipline focused on attractive valuations and actively managing positions in the portfolios, Vimco creates value for its customers.
