Investment Management

Tim and Greg collaborate daily to discuss current market trends, investment outlook, portfolio construction, implementation and issues top of mind for our clients.

We are full cycle, global macro, risk aware portfolio managers. We build true multi-asset portfolios, utilizing quantitative risk management tools to try to minimize large drawdowns while taking advantage of upside opportunities.

We help our clients preserve and protect their hard-earned savings by using a quantitative, global macro, risk management process. This process was created and refined through our over 58 years of combined market experience and is designed to help our clients increase the possibility of achieving their portfolio return goals while attempting to reduce large drawdowns along the way. While no process is perfect, our commitment to our clients is consistent application and relentless refinement of that process.

How is our Investment Process different?

To be successful at investing you must protect against large losses of capital to improve compounding and achieve consistent capital growth.

We believe preserving capital to unleash the power of compounding is the most important element of a successful investment approach.

We build outcome-oriented solutions for our clients. We don’t focus on beating the markets every minute of every day, but instead aim to grow capital consistently over time.

The following factors are considered when building portfolios:

  • Your Goals and Objectives
  • Time Horizon
  • Liquidity Requirements
  • Income Needs
  • Tax Considerations
  • Fees
  • Risk Tolerance
  • Account Size
  • Current Market Conditions
  • Performance Expectations
  • Your Personal Values
  • Other Investments
