Choose Wisely™ - that's Ativo's approach. Ativo Capital Management is an independent Registered Investment Advisor that seeks to wisely choose each portfolio security to deliver portfolio growth. Our approach is based on rigorously applying discounted cash flow return on investment methodologies ("DCFROI") to the management of equity portfolios.
Ativo is a Portuguese word that means both "active" and "assets" - together they illustrate our approach to the management of equity portfolios. Ativo develops portfolios based on a history of quantitative securities research covering nearly four decades that is the basis for a stable and consistent investment philosophy. We start with sound financial theory. We apply this theory to real-time experiments in actual markets to develop investment rules that transcend specific market conditions. Consistently applied, these rules pick the stocks for our portfolios.
We combine cutting-edge financial theory and
clear objectives that are integrated into
quantitative models that drive portfolio
composition. The results are impressive and are
consistent over time.
Ativo offers portfolio management services to
individuals, pension plans, endowments,
foundations, corporations and pooled investment
