Independent · Transparent · Fiduciary
We use a state-of-the-art risk assessment tool, grounded in behavioral finance to understand how our clients view market and portfolio volatility; allowing us to better match their investment portfolio with their comfort level around risk.
Many investment managers focus on just the price movements of markets. For us, understanding market risks requires looking at the entirety of the financial markets. This includes the broad stock market’s movement, volatility signals, treasury bond markets, currency markets, and investment-grade corporate debt and high yield corporate debt markets. This gives us a better understanding of the big picture story of the financial markets.
We believe that managing risk on multiple levels is a major component of our enduring success. A proper portfolio structure, strategically diversified across various investment classes has been proven to provide more risk-efficient returns for long-term investors.
Part of our process is looking deeply into how institutional money managers are positioning their books of business so we can understand what is truly driving market movements
Over 80% of all trading is now done by computer-based algorithm, and it’s the large institutional investors and hedge funds that move markets, putting the average investor at a disadvantage in their ability to be proactive about market positions.
It is our job to reduce risk and adjust portfolios as necessary to maximize profits and bear the ups and downs of cyclical economies.
We proactively adjust portfolios based on market and economic cycles with the attempt to avoid significant portfolio losses in down markets, while attempting to maximize returns during favorable conditions.
Bull Markets are born in pessimism, grow in skepticism, mature in optimism, and die in euphoria.
– Sir John Templeton
