O’Mara’s Investment Philosophy: Being “led” by markets rather than imposing views on what markets “should do”. The essence of O’Mara’s outperformance: Risk concentration in the right sectors.

Run your winners – stays with profitable trends when they develop.

Low fee model available for new accounts in 2015: 0% management fee and 20% performance fee.
