The most important measure of investment success is ensuring that you are on course to achieve your goals. We strongly believe that the best path to a successful outcome is through the combination of global diversification, a disciplined asset allocation approach, avoiding behavioral biases, and managing your investment costs.
Our mission is to enrich our clients with attractive investment returns, proactive and strategic advice, decisive action, and a commitment to integrity and excellence. We apply an evidence-based approach to asset allocation and investing, rather than allowing speculation or narrative to drive our decisions.
Before implementing an investment program, we start with a thorough understanding of your goals. Then, we devise an investment plan based on your unique time horizon, risk tolerance, and constraints associated with your goals.
We believe that adhering to the following core principles of our philosophy provides the most effective means to generate investment returns to satisfy your goals and creates the highest probability of a successful outcome:
With a focus on maximizing long-term results, our investment professionals provide access to a number of diverse and proprietary resources. Utilizing our broad perspective of the markets, we execute a robust due diligence and investment selection process that allows us to uncover specific investment opportunities that are right for you.
Your wealth plan takes into account special consideration for your sensitivity to risk. Leveraging our expertise in managing capital across a variety of asset classes, we provide active, tactical guidance that is designed to protect your wealth and help you toward achieving your goals. We continually monitor your evolving needs, adjust portfolio construction as needed, and thoughtfully rebalance when appropriate.
History has demonstrated that markets normally compensate investors for bearing risk over time. However, we acknowledge that it may not always be a smooth ride. Risk and return are inextricably linked, so pursuing higher expected returns involves taking more market risk. It is not easy for investors to avoid the emotional pitfalls and behavioral biases in the midst of a market correction, but we will help you maintain perspective and make rational investment decisions consistent with your plan.
We are strong advocates for staying disciplined through the volatile stretches inherent in capital markets. We do not attempt to time markets, forecast market tops or bottoms, or speculate on “flavor-of-the-month” investment ideas. Instead, we make portfolio adjustments based on objective criteria that is measurable and observable over time. We look past short-term volatility, help our clients avoid common behavioral biases that could detract from returns, and strive to build resilient portfolios that win over time.
One reason that we have the fortitude to remain disciplined through market swings is due to our robust asset allocation process and commitment to risk management. Part of our risk management framework is evaluating the downside risk of a portfolio. As opposed to volatility, which measures the dispersion of historical returns for an asset, downside risk is how much we expect your portfolio to decline if we hit a recession. We think this is a better, more tangible way to frame the risk-reward tradeoff for our clients.
