About Us


In 1975, Bill Tanner co-founded and built one of L.A.’s most prominent Business Management firms to serve the local entertainment and sports industries. From years of analyzing his business management clients' investments, Bill determined that his clients were using overly complex investment portfolios. In 1994, Bill took this knowledge and his love for investing and founded AMI Asset Management. As the firm grew, institutional investors became a larger part of the client base, partially driven by the hiring of the firm's Chief Investment Officer, Chris Sessing, in 2005.  Today, the firm consists of 14 individuals, including 5 members of the equity research team.  AMI was built to provide straight forward, high-quality investment portfolios that are completely transparent and focused on providing capital preservation in down markets.  AMI currently has $2.5 billion in assets under advisement*.
