Founded in 1993, Cougar Global Investments is a macro-driven, global tactical asset allocation strategist. We practice a strict discipline of downside risk management, striving to participate in bull markets while avoiding, if possible, the downside in bear markets. Cougar Global Investments believes the goal of investing is to generate compound growth that seeks to achieve clients’ investment objectives. No matter which portfolio investors choose, they can be confident it is managed with the same guiding principles that we have followed since our beginning: a focus on capital preservation and downside risk tailored to the long-term investor’s needs and goals.
Cougar Global Investments believes the key to achieving attractive long-term compound returns is to avoid large intermittent losses. We apply a dynamic top-down global macro-oriented asset allocation process that has a strong focus on downside risk management. As tactical managers, our research team conducts ongoing macroeconomic and asset class analysis, reviewing the asset mix for each mandate monthly and rebalancing as required. As new opportunities emerge or if new threats are on the horizon, Cougar Global Investments has the ability to adjust the asset mix accordingly. We are registered and regulated by the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) as a Portfolio Manager and registered as a “non-resident” investment advisor with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
