AMC

AMC: Varanium PMS (click link for detailed AMC review)

Not a Recommended AMC: Founded by a seasoned PMS fund manager, Varanium PMS has the potential to develop into a credible niche player. We are however disappointed by the lack of a clearly articulated investment philosophy and also find that Varanium offers too many disparate strategies (all of which may not be open to subscription) which do point towards a lack of focus. These are the main reasons we do not recommend investing in Varanium PMS.
