We believe that investors should be compensated for the risk they take in their investment portfolios. Many investment programs examine total return and total risk, where risk is defined as the volatility of a set of returns and measured by standard deviations. While this is a good start, we believe it does not go far enough in identifying and evaluating the different sources of risk and return. Specifically, the "total return, total risk" approach fails to distinguish between the components of risk and return generated by the market and those generated by the investment manager.
We evaluate and attempt to manage market risk and return through the asset allocation process, utilizing forward-looking assumptions in an effort to maximize the return potential at any level of risk selected. Using this approach, we see to provide a better solution than using common "rules of thumb" or anecdotal approaches to asset allocation.
Please keep in mind that diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
Investing involves risk and you may incur a profit or loss regardless of strategy selected.
