Evidence-Based Investment Management
Risk depends on the needs of the investor. If you need money tomorrow, the risk is that the value drops today. If you need money in 20 or 50 years, your risk is that the money doesn't earn as much as it could.
That is why we start by matching a client's investments to their cash needs; then adjust for tolerance for volatility.
Long Term Focus
A long-term focus has been shown to improve outcomes for investors.
Having a high hurdle for tactical portfolio adjustments leads to lower costs, lower taxes, and only the most compelling opportunities being added to your portfolio.
Asset Specific Strategies
The most efficient way to participate in capitalism varies from asset to asset.
The safest assets require a focused attention on cost and tax efficiency.
Stocks and higher income assets need to capture higher growth while managing risk in a diversified portfolio.
