Thoughtfully Crafted Portfolios

Screening

We identify opportunities through an assessment of macro and micro-economic trends and narrow down the investment universe.

Investment Analysis

We analyze investments using objective quantitative statistics and metrics, as well as various qualitative factors.

Fundamental Research

This step focuses on the five Ps  – philosophy, process, people, price, and performance – to gain an in-depth understanding of the fund, the manager, or the partnership.

Portfolio Construction

After being thoroughly researched, potential investments are proposed to the investment committee and must stand up to a rigorous review and Q&A process before being added to your portfolio.

Ongoing Monitoring

Your portfolio is monitored and reviewed on an ongoing basis to determine if it is meeting its investment objective. The portfolio will be rebalanced as necessary to keep asset weightings in line with your objectives and risk tolerance. 

 

Investment Opportunities to Fit Your Every Need

Traditional Equity and Fixed Income Investments

To capitalize on markets that are efficient, we believe using low-cost, passive investments can help optimize your portfolio by keeping fees low with an aim of minimizing potential tax consequences and risks. Alternatively, in parts of the market where there are inefficiencies, a skilled, active portfolio manager can capitalize on opportunities beyond the typical index fund.

Stocks

Investing in publicly traded companies can increase the growth potential of your overall portfolio. To properly diversify your investments, we believe any prudent stock portfolio should be invested in large, mid, and small-cap companies from all around the globe. 

Bonds

Depending on your risk tolerance, adding bonds to your portfolio can preserve what you’ve worked hard to save while providing a steady income stream. Investing in a combination of corporate, government, and, depending on your tax bracket, municipal bonds, may be part of a diversified fixed-income portfolio.  

 

Alternative Investments

For accredited investors, we can provide access to exclusive private investments typically reserved for endowments, foundations, and ultra-high-net-worth investors. We utilize alternative investments for portfolio diversification and potentially reduce overall investment risk, as they tend to have a low correlation with traditional assets. Alternative investments include top-tier private equity and venture capital managers, private credit, private real estate, and long/short equity to name just a handful of potential investment opportunities.*

*Bonds are subject to availability and market conditions; some have call features that may affect income. Bond prices and yields are inversely related: when the price goes up, the yield goes down, and vice versa. Market risk is a consideration if sold or redeemed prior to maturity. Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets, and diversification cannot guarantee that any objective or goal will be achieved. Investing in alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors and involves special risks, such as risk associated with leveraging the investment, utilizing complex financial derivatives, adverse market forces, regulatory and tax code changes, and illiquidity. There is no assurance that the investment objective will be attained.

The role of being a fiduciary not only pertains to our role as your investment advisor but also as your financial planner.
