We believe our clients’ financial goals are best achieved by the avoidance of major losses in falling markets and the compounding of reasonable gains in rising markets.
Key Tenets of our Investment Philosophy
Play both defense and offense.
We search for investments with acceptable downside risk and underappreciated growth potential. This asymmetric risk/reward profile is central to every aspect of our approach to investment management.
Focus on absolute returns.
We are more concerned with meeting our clients’ goals than with tracking a benchmark. Our clients don’t like to lose money and neither do we.
Measure performance over full market cycles.
We employ an investment discipline focused on achieving solid returns over the long haul. An over-concern with the short term can dilute focus, increase costs and detract from performance. Our fundamental goal is to create long-term financial security for our clients.
