Our investment desks are responsible for their investment processes, and unlike many asset management firms we have no house view or chief investment officer. The Investment Directors’ Committee is a forum for the heads of investment desks to discuss market conditions, internal and external research, and developments of note. Made up of some of OMGI’s most experienced investors, the IDC channels information and strategy updates from the Executive Committee (Exco) to the investment desks, and provides a mechanism for the investors to pass views, observations and recommendations to the Exco. On a quarterly basis, the Exco and IDC meet as a larger group to ensure the effective sharing and understanding of information.
