Investment Team

Cambiar does not subscribe to the notion that more analysts leads to better research. Rather, our approach has been to have a focused investment team of industry specialists with strong academic backgrounds and pertinent experience. We believe that fostering a research climate based on objectivity and independent thought, results in the ability to act opportunistically.
