Your overall asset allocation is the single most important factor in determining your portfolio’s long-term expected return. That’s why we build your portfolio based upon the science of captial markets and the power of asset class investing, rather than on speculation and market timing.
Because each asset class plays a different role in your portfolio, the whole is often greater than the sum of its parts.
By relying on a data-driven investment approach, we can remove some of the guesswork and construct portfolios designed to capture sources of higher expected returns.
As an independent fiduciary investment advisor firm, our exclusive duty of loyalty is to our clients. We are not affiliated with or beholden to investment product manufacturers such as investment banks, mutual fund companies or insurance companies. Our clients' well-being is our only concern.
Markets Work, Mostly.....
Our belief is that markets efficiently determine the value of stocks and bonds under most conditions, but not always. If markets were perfectly efficient, there would not be asset bubbles and crashes. We tactically adjust our model and position allocations based upon a variety of economic factors. We use both active management and passive investments to build robust, integrated allocations designed to withstand the ebbs and flows of global capital markets.
The closest thing to a free lunch in finance is diversification. We use both active and passive investments, diversified across a variety of global asset classes. We focus on portfolio risk mitigation while seeking opportunities to capture excess returns.
