What We Do
AN INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
Developed With You In Mind
Our work is completed at the highest standard of care within our industry with the intent of becoming a reliable resource for our clients. The focus is on education and using applied research to help you protect, save and grow your wealth.
We assume the market is generally efficient, so when we seek excess returns above benchmarks, we employ a sophisticated proprietary approach.
What We Believe
Your Interests Are Our Interests
Our trusted heritage stewarding multiple generations of wealth informs our decision-making.
Assets Serve a Purpose
We invest with intent and focus on what is most important to you. We view investment strategies through a purposeful lens, assessing the role that each asset is expected to play in the underlying portfolio.
Risk and Return Are Related
We focus on taking investment risk only where we have a high degree of confidence in the return potential.
The Best Thinking of Our Firm
Your portfolio will benefit from the insight of our investment policy committee, comprised of the same industry-leading global capital market professionals who determine asset allocations for some of the world’s most sophisticated institutions.
A Deep Understanding Of Portfolio Risk
We use a risk and risk control building block approach to ensure you have access to robust portfolio diversification.
Portfolio Design Grounded In Evidence
We perform robust research to understand the true sources of risk that drive returns. We believe this leads to portfolios with transparent, well-compensated risks.
A Focus On Triple-net Returns
We align your results and expectations with reality by evaluating returns after expenses, taxes and inflation.
No Misleading Investment Proposals
We avoid using investment proposals filled with investments that performed well but we didn’t own. We instead explain process & philosophy guided by financial science.
“If most clients asked their advisor for a philosophy, they would get back a blank stare”
Our Wealth Management Process
Discovery is our opportunity to establish trust and create a client-focused experience. The way to achieve this is to lead with listening. Our objective in this meeting is to help establish trust, understand your unique needs and goals, articulate your value proposition, and agree on the next steps and/or meeting.
At this time we’ll analyze your financial picture, select appropriate solutions, and make recommendations that align with your needs and goals. Tailored advice is core to the services offered, so we will analyze what you own and walk through our program and investment selection.
Now that we have taken a deeper look into your circumstances and selected the recommended programs and investments, we will present you with a detailed plan.
Just like discovery, the implementation of your investments is an ongoing process. Over time, we’ll establish review meetings with you, ongoing communications and staying top of mind.
