DAM conducts in-house research and has a strong global research network. Their investment management philosophy is based on a mid-to-long-term perspective in which they try to identify hidden values which are not yet fully recognized in the market. The firm takes a balanced approach emphasizing both fundamental and quantitative analysis. DAM’s basic assumption is that the market is not fully efficient and they employ a coherent investment process through organizational support at each phase of their 'Plan', 'Do' and 'Review' policy. They pursue stable excess mid-to long-term returns through suitable risk control, which they separate from investment management to ensure that the risk control system adequately monitors their investment process.

Company visits are important components of their bottom-up research process and are a primary source for their fundamental analysis.
