Investment Management

We believe that investors should be compensated for the risk they take. Benjamin Graham is quoted as saying “Successful investing is about managing risk, not avoiding it.” While we believe this is a good start, we feel it does not go far enough in identifying and evaluating the different sources of risk and return. By adapting a more detailed process, we break down risk and return into their “active” and “market” components. This allows clients to attempt to control the level of active risk in any portfolio (the “risk budget”) and to measure the value added by the portfolio managers independent of the markets.

To ensure a long‐term focus,
we adhere to a disciplined seven‐step process:

  1. Formalize Investment Goals, Risk Parameters & Unique Portfolio Constraints
  2. Current Portfolio Analysis & Modeling (Risk/Reward & Return Need Analysis)
  3. Asset Allocation Strategy Selection (Individual Account & Total Portfolio Basis)
  4. Individual Investment Holding Selection (Individual Stocks/Bonds, ETFs & Mutual Funds)
  5. Portfolio Monitoring & Rebalancing
  6. Performance Measurement & Reporting
  7. Tax Gain / Loss Harvesting
