It is an affiliate of Carret Asset Management (CAM), a multi-billion-dollar investment manager based in New York which was founded in 1963 by Philip L. Carret.

The Art of Speculation

Carret is widely regarded as a Wall Street icon and investment legend. He first introduced value investing in a series of «Barron's» articles in 1927 and further described the concept in his 1930 book, «The Art of Speculation». He put his ideas into action in 1928, when he founded one of the world's first mutual funds, the Pioneer Fund, which he managed with great success for more than half a century. In 1963, seeking to provide personalized investment services, he founded CAM.
