Our approach to investment management seeks to capitalize on opportunities while minimizing risk — always with an eye toward your long-term goals.

A Thoughtful and Personal Methodology

We carefully assess the role that each asset is expected to play in your portfolio, and we only invest where we have a high degree of confidence in the after-tax, inflation-adjusted return potential.

Through conversation and analysis, we work to discern your desire for growth, need for income, and comfort with volatility. Once the initial portfolio allocation is in place, we set a personalized strategy to make strategic and tactical adjustments presented by the normal ebbs and flows of various asset classes.

Our Interests are Aligned

We are “open architecture” investors. This means we are able to construct portfolios that fit your needs and goals — whether passive, active, traditional, or alternative — across a wide range of asset managers and investment vehicles. Working under an advisory framework, we operate independently from any investment programs or managers.

As a fiduciary, fee-based advisor, working under the highest duty of care and loyalty, our goals align with yours.

How We Work with You

We follow your lead to determine how best to work together. Some of our clients are active investors who like to have consistent dialogue about markets and positions. Others prefer steady and objective advice without the need to give constant input. Regardless of your preferred approach, our team leverages its experience, depth of knowledge, and keen listening skills to develop a custom portfolio that addresses your needs, both today and long into the future.
