Our Investment Approach
Our goal is to preserve and grow the real value of our clients' wealth. This involves several related things: outpacing inflation, achieving prudent growth, and avoiding large losses, all while focusing on the long term. We have a differentiated approach to building portfolios.
Following a detailed financial strategy discussion, we establish a customized investment policy statement including an asset allocation strategy reflecting your goals, tolerance for risk, & cash flow needs.
We believe one single strategy is not appropriate given varying objectives, tolerance for risk, changing markets, and a volatile global environment.
We are transparent in every aspect of our client relationships, including complete disclosure regarding the fees for our investment services.
INSTITUTIONAL RESOURCES & TECHNOLOGY
We rely on a best-in-class suite of resources and technology tools in order to offer asset management advice.
Our Investment Philosophy
Our modern portfolio oriented investment philosophy is founded on the Nobel Prize-winning work of Dr. Daniel Kahneman which considers risk not as a financial concept but as the risk of not being able to meet your objectives.
ATTEMPTING TO TIME THE MARKET RARELY PAYS OFF
We believe that the core aim of any portfolio should be to achieve long-term sustainable growth. And that this can best be achieved by holding assets for long periods of time.
DIVERSIFICATION OF ASSET CLASSES CAN REDUCE RISK
It pays to spread your investments over a range of asset classes for one very simple reason; the performance of every asset fluctuates.
COSTS ARE A DRAG ON PERFORMANCE
It’s easy to underestimate the effect portfolio costs can have on investment performance. Even additional costs of just 1% or 2% can impose a significant drag on the value of your assets over the long term.
COMBINING STRATEGIES CAN ENHANCE RETURNS
By creating both core portfolios and satellite strategies, such as alternative investments, for our clients we ensure they share in the benefits of both active and passive strategies.
