For over three decades, SCM has provided investment advisory and management services to select investors.
SCM’s pedigree in strategic research has propelled the firm’s disciplined evolution through several investment cycles. In serving our clients through more than 30 years of tumultuous change, SCM has demonstrated persistent discipline, rigor, global perspective, and foresight. We continue to offer public equity portfolios, as well as private direct investments, to high net worth investors, family offices, foundations, and other institutional-quality investors.
Drawing on Founder Richard Seamans’ deep roots in global macro research, SCM opened in 1986 as a strategic advisor specializing in interest rates, commodities, and currencies for institutional investors.
In 1992, SCM recognized direct investment opportunities in minerals and began advising Canadian and Australian mining companies.
In 2001, based on proprietary SCM analyses of the needs of a rapidly growing global middle class, we launched an investment management practice focused on resource investments.
In 2013, we identified that the energy economy was transitioning from commodity-based to technology-based as fossil fuels began to give way to renewable energies. With the foresight that advanced technologies would ultimately transform the global economy, we focused on renewable energy investments.
In 2016, multiple sector opportunities in both the public and private spaces were created by the innovations driven by the adoption of advanced technologies throughout the economy. Hence, our investment strategy of Essential Technologies for Essential Services.
