Our principal investment objective is to develop and manage investment portfolios that deliver above-average investment returns within well defined risk parameters. This goal is achieved by pursuing an investment philosophy that initially draws on a “top down” asset allocation approach that is flexible but provides essential discipline in the process of fund management. Our preference is to utilise a fund of funds approach to give our clients the greatest level of investment diversification whilst managing risk thus recognising individual client requirements.

The directors of CCA are Richard van Vliet, Adrian Starr and Jeff Corbet.

CAM has established relationships with associated professionals (Accountants and Attorneys) in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth.
