Our Investment Philosophy

A FEW SIMPLE RULES. TIMELESS VALUES.

  Invest for the long term in funds and pooled investment strategies managed by firms and individuals we understand in depth

  Diversification among managers and asset classes enhances risk management

  Focus on wealth maximization through solidly performing equity and income strategies (our long-term “Core” strategies)

  Utilize tactical strategies to address unique medium-term opportunities

  Ongoing risk-based screening of portfolio volatility vs. client risk tolerances

Investment Process Overview

PROCESS INCREASES LIKELIHOOD OF REACHING EXPECTED OUTCOMES
  • Economic Outlook
  • Market Assessments
  • Consistent with a client’s plan, build a portfolio with a high likelihood of meeting desired objectives
  • 50-80% core strategic holdings with the balance in non-core tactical allocations
  • Allocate across cash, equities, bonds and alternatives (for appropriately sophisticated clients.)
  • Deep understanding of managers philosophy and process
  • Select products that are cost effective and tax efficient
  • Consider risk allocations in construction
  • Execution through top-rated broker/custodians
  • Adjust tactical strategies when major market and economic shifts occur

How We Implement

1. Invest for the long run but allocate tactically across asset classes and strategies based on fundamental changes in economic conditions and markets.

2. Open architecture diversifies the risk and can increase investment success.

3. Use analytics and research capabilities of credible third party service providers

4. Using multiple managers in any strategy hedges significant downside volatility (for no meaningful increase in cost)

5. Select managers based on established 3 rd party screening criteria as well as in house assessments and ongoing monitoring of the firm, key people and the strategies underlying their funds

6. Balancing a funds performance and cost effectiveness

7. Communicate frequently, clearly and effectively about our strategies and your money as often as you might reasonably request our assistance.
