Guild Investment Management Inc.’s mission since its founding in 1971 has been to provide our clients with consistently high returns while minimizing our risk profile over both intermediate and long term periods.
Guild’s philosophy is to seek value, and invest with a global view. Guild believes that having this perspective is essential to understanding the macroeconomic trends, changes and relationships that create investment opportunities. Our global approach to selecting investments not only helps Guild discover new investment opportunities, it is essential to understanding and anticipating risks in increasingly interconnected, changing economies.
Thorough research and a disciplined analysis of returns and risks increase long-term success. In our portfolio management, we weigh the relevant pieces of information, estimate the risks of the unexpected, anticipate change, and then make judgments based on the odds, with the knowledge that success is never guaranteed. Uncertainty is an unavoidable part of investing and it is naïve to believe that it can be eliminated. Occasionally, good investment ideas have poor results.
Recognizing that uncertainty exists increases long-term investment success in changing market environments. Having the flexibility to concentrate when opportunities are present, and to reduce exposure when risks dictate caution, has been a key to our success.
