 Our Investment Process

1.    Asset Allocation: The starting point for constructing specialized portfolios.

    • Understand the economy and markets along with assessing our outlook, ( equity, fixed income, alternative markets in the United States and abroad)
    • Identify opportunities and risks in the market and determine whether the strategy should be weighted as opportunistic or defensive

2.   Investment Selection: Advisor performs rigorous due diligence and continuously identifies specific investments to meet each asset allocation target.

    • Assess what drives performance for each investment
    • Technical analysis and valuation examination. Determine what role will each investment serve in the portfolio.

3.    Portfolio Construction: Gather an understanding of how various investments interact with each other in order to drive performance.

    • Determine what market and economical risks are present.
    • Identify the greatest threat to the portfolio 

4.    Implementation: A well constructed portfolio is only as good as the implementation.

    • Consider cost, price and execution as we utilize the appropriate trading strategy

5.    Manage: Our advisory team manages individual investment performance on a daily basis.

    • Review qualitative and quantitative factors such as, absolute performance, attribution, performance relative to our expectations and performance relative to peers
    • Monitor that individual investments are meeting portfolio objectives

6.    Sell Discipline: Establish when to sell an investment that is under performing our expectations or when to sell and take profits on an investment that has done well. 

    • Identify different sell triggers for long term positions and opportunistic investments
    • Along each step of the process we employ fundamental, technical and valuation based analysis to help determine where opportunities and risks may be present
