History

Calamos began as a boutique investment manager in the 1970s, developing strategies that maximized the potential of convertible securities to generate excess returns and manage risk.

Calamos employs more than 300 individuals in Naperville, Illinois,[2] as well as sales and client service professionals located throughout the United States and in England.[3] The Calamos investment process focuses on a comprehensive understanding of the total value of a company and the relative attractiveness of the securities within its capital structure.

Calamos believes the key to consistent, long-term success and building wealth is achieving the optimal balance between enhancing investment returns and managing risk and offers a broad range of opportunistic equity, fixed income and alternative strategies with proven records of capturing the market's upside while limiting downside volatility through full market cycles.[4]
