Established in 2006 by Adam Chamberlain and Scott Davies, CDAM is an independent, employee-owned global equity boutique based in London.
CDAM was established with a client-first, values-led approach. We aimed to build a culture of independent thinking that is simultaneously inclusive and collaborative. This foundation was built on our core values - Simplicity, Transparency, Accountability, and Responsibility.
Moreover, we aimed to create a family-friendly working environment prioritising employees' physical and mental health. We believe we have achieved this and are convinced it leads to better client results.View Our Team
Our firm’s culture and individual investing experience in special situations, fixed-income, private equity, distressed debt, and academia shape our distinctive investment approach.
We take an evidence-based private markets approach to public market investing, focusing on CEO behaviour, capital allocation, and valuations.
We are patient and methodical investors who analyse companies through an in-depth fundamental process developed over 15+ years. Our robust process uncovers investment opportunities in areas other investors typically avoid.Investment Approach
Simplicity ensures clear thinking, direction, and execution. Our team has a single strategy and mission to invest in high-quality, reasonably priced, growing businesses for our clients.
Transparency is crucial in our relationship with investors who have full access to our Investment Team. Our Portfolio Managers personally update our investors, offering insights into our companies, processes, and the analytical tools we've developed over time.
Accountability is essential to ensure our investments are handled judiciously and transparently. It involves regular monitoring and reporting activity providing clear information on performance and risks. This practice encourages responsible decision-making and helps to preserve trust among stakeholders.
We manage our investors' money with the same level of care as our own. We understand our significant responsibility towards our investors and stakeholders, who depend on us to deliver strong investment returns and prevent permanent capital loss.
