We use a research driven process to initially filter out investments from the investment marketplace universe. Our criteria for investments that we select for our strategies include, but are not limited to, risk adjusted return, underlying costs, management experience, peer group analysis and market correlation. From our pool of investments we deem suitable for clients we design strategies to match our clients risk tolerance, time frame and investment objective. Strategies are scored as they are researched and benchmarked against peers and indexes and reviewed twice per year. Strategies are also designed to be rebalanced twice per year and additionally in volatile markets. An Investment Policy Statement is created to specify your risk tolerance, goal time frames, resources and other information relevant to creating an investor profile.
