Trading incurs cost to clients that must be measured, monitored, and managed.

Client alignment is our foremost objective. Therefore, managing trading costs is a necessary component of our investment process. Specifically, 18 AM's approach to trading benefits the client as follows:

  • We employ proactive strategies to reduce transaction costs.
  • We access world class trading skills.
  • We develop processes to allow more time to be focused on portfolio management.

Due to the unique nature of the Canadian Equity market, institutional investors must pay particular attention to the trading aspect of their portfolio management. If not carefully managed, trading costs have the potential to significantly erode portfolio returns. Having almost three decades experience managing equities in Canada, we understand this facet of trading in the Canadian equity market well. The ability to successfully manage within this environment is a value added service for our clients.
