Our D.Y.N.A.M.I.C. Process
A (D)isciplined process with a (Y)ou first mentality and a (N)imble approach that’s (A)ligned to your goals and objectives. It’s (M)indful, (I)mpactful, and (C)omprehensive.
It all begins with getting to know more about you, your family, your business, hobbies, and current investment knowledge. With an understanding of your big picture, we will look at where your investments are today, and where you think they are. Often, perception does not match reality. You may feel that you are conservatively invested, while your portfolio is filled with more aggressive holdings, or vice versa.
To understand your specific needs and objectives, we spend time learning about your goals, emergency cash needs, and comfort level with various types of investments. Leveraging cutting-edge technology, our Riskalyze program will identify what you are willing to risk for potential gains. This will guide our decision making process and how your portfolio is built.
Starting with some easy-to-understand explanations of our preferred investment methods, we will show you a portfolio design aimed at achieving your desired lifestyle.
For example, an integral part of your core portfolio construction is based on Nobel Prize winning research, known as “Modern Portfolio Theory.” Our dynamic design then enhances your core equity (stocks) and core fixed income (bonds) investments with value-added opportunities we believe are best suited for the prevailing macro-economic environment.
By employing this “tactical” investment strategy that is aligned with your personal preferences, we seek to optimize your portfolio’s performance compared to standard benchmarks.
Your lineup of investments is selected from the industry’s leading mutual fund managers, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and indexes. We monitor the universe of possibilities and “grade” each potential candidate on a number of quantitative and qualitative measures, including risk, investment style, operating expenses, size, as well as current and historical rates of return during various types of market environments.
We strive to deliver a superior set of investment products and services by leveraging strategic partnerships with a select group of institutional firms we believe provide an exceptional level of expertise (custodian, compliance, performance reporting, and research) allowing us to focus on you and your portfolio.
Our team continuously stress tests your portfolio and evaluates market conditions, looking for any changes that may require a shift in strategy. You will also have access to a secure client portal (updated daily) and a quarterly report with our insights and comments regarding your specific portfolio performance, risk, and potential adjustments.
We will track your progress towards your financial goals and adjust for changes in your life in real-time. Through this process, you’ll better understand your path and what can be done to increase the probability of success.
Our investment philosophy is well-grounded and evidence-based. It is a disciplined approach with a focus on optimizing after-tax returns, low-cost investing, diversified holdings, and proper asset allocation. While aligning your portfolio with the prevailing economic climate, we create a comprehensive investment strategy that best fits your financial life.
By applying sophisticated financial analysis and research in practical and results-oriented design, your financial solution will be focused on strategies built to minimize risk while pursuing a rate of return sufficient to work towards your goals. While return is always important to you, safety is equally critical. Building portfolios that are consistent with your desired level of safety defines the types of investment options you will be comfortable with and gauges a rate of return you can reasonably expect.
