What's a GIMBAL?

Gimbal noun \ `gim-bəl \ Invented by Philo of Byzantium, a gimbal is a mechanical device used to keep objects stable, made of two or more rings mounted at right angles. Compasses mounted with three gimbals provide three-dimensional stability.

At Gimbal Capital Management, we apply the principles of asset allocation and security selection using a disciplined and proven investment process. These are the "gimbals" we use to generate consistent returns for our clients, regardless of the market environment.
