Investment Positions

Our portfolios are designed for long-term investors. We do not believe that anyone can consistently “outsmart” the market. Research suggests that market timing only accounts for a small amount of a portfolio’s returns. This, however, does not mean that your portfolio will be “buy and ignore”. Sometimes, economic conditions and changes dictate portfolio adjustments. We endorse a “buy and monitor” approach. When these events happen, we will adjust your account accordingly with new investment opportunities.
Our search criteria for investments factors things like the number of holdings fundamental analysis, industry exposure, number of holdings, the investment’s management team, and volatility.

Asset Allocation

Asset allocation is critical in having a healthy portfolio. Your asset allocation will vary depending on current market conditions. Depending on your individual goals, risk tolerance, and other factors, your portfolio may consist of equities, bonds, cash, and alternative asset classes.
