  • March A.M. manages six equity investment funds which are committed to generating long-term returns while safeguarding the customers' assets.

March Asset Management (March A.M.) was acknowledged as the Best Equity Fund Manager in 2018 in a new edition of the Investment Funds awards organised by Expansión and Allfunds Bank.

In terms of equity, the asset management firm seeks to invest in global companies which represent a valid acquisition opportunity and boast an attractive valuation with a a fundamentals which remain sound over a long time span.

This strategy is typified by the March International Vini Catena Class A-EUR and March International The Family Businesses Fund Class A-EUR thematic funds, which have achieved yields of 17.66% and 19.89% respectively over the past three years.
