TOBAM is a French asset management firm regulated by the AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers), with which TOBAM registered on June 5, 2006. It is also a SEC registered investment adviser. TOBAM is based in Paris, and has an office in New York.
TOBAM manages about $6 billion (as of June 2014) via its Anti-Benchmark strategies in Equities and Fixed Income.
TOBAM’s flagship Anti-Benchmark products provide clients with diversified core equity exposure, both globally and in domestic markets. The fully quantitative process (patent pending) provides a broad exposure to the available risk premia and avoids the concentration of risk that is found in Market Cap-Weighted benchmarks. Anti-Benchmark strategies can provide better returns than market cap-weighted benchmarks with typically lower risk.
FTSE also publishes the FTSE TOBAM Maximum Diversification Index Series based on the Anti-Benchmark equity portfolio construction methodology.
The Anti-Benchmark methodology has been applied successfully to other asset classes. The team at TOBAM have broad experience in asset management and investment including Equities, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange, Commodities and Volatility products.
