Our Core Tenets
Our core beliefs form the foundation of our investment discipline, which places you and your concerns at the very center of all we do. These tenets underscore our efforts to provide you with a smoother ride and attractive, competitive returns.
Risk has been redefined
We strive to deliver superior returns while reducing portfolio risk and hedging, not just against volatility, but against "drawdown exposure." By that we mean the potential for long-term, significant capital loss over a fixed period of time—which is what investors really care about.
Portfolios aren't truly diversified with the typical asset classes alone
Have a broadly diversified portfolio—which has been shown to boost returns and tame volatility over time—but don't do it the old-fashioned way. Instead of allocating portfolios by breaking them down into equities, fixed income, and cash, our more refined, modern approach looks at the underlying economic factors that drive asset class behavior and strives to achieve enhanced return.
It's not what you reap: It's what you keep
Adding value from a tax perspective is as critical as from an investment perspective. Our integrated, tax-wise structuring can help preserve wealth to keep more of it in the family, while employing advantageous solutions to minimize your annual and generational tax burden.
An investment's potential value should exceed its expected costs
If your wins are wiped out by expenses, it isn't a win. We believe that the potential value of an opportunity should be great enough to outweigh associated manager and transaction fees, as well as other costs.
Look beyond traditional solutions
Qualified clients may have an important way of accessing value through nontraditional, or alternative, strategies that are not in lockstep with traditional asset classes like equities and fixed income, which trade on public markets. For example, hedge funds, liquid alternatives, and private markets may significantly enhance portfolio efficiency and long-term expected returns.
