About Cougar Global Investments
Managing assets since 1993
Cougar Global Investments is a globally-oriented macro asset-class portfolio manager that uses a disciplined portfolio-construction methodology which combines macroeconomic analysis with downside-risk management. Cougar Global’s guiding belief is that the goal of investing is to generate consistent compound growth, primarily achieved by seeking to minimize loss.
Effective 4/30/15 Cougar Global was acquired by Raymond James Financial, Inc. (NYSE:RJF) and in 2016 Cougar Global become an affiliate of Carillon Tower Advisers, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Raymond James Financial, Inc.
Cougar Global Investments believes the goal of investing is to achieve compound annualized returns that meet the client’s investment objectives. To achieve this objective, Cougar Global’s investment philosophy is to participate in bull markets and avoid bear markets.
Cougar Global shares with the vast majority of retail investors (and very few academics) an ”asymmetric approach toward risk”. Cougar Global attempts to avoid downside risk, but is quite willing to accept the “risk” of upside opportunities.
