Tactical Investment Management

Our tactical asset allocation process helps you achieve more stable returns with less risk.

For more than 30 years, we've used the tools of multibillion dollar, institution-level investors. We do so to help our clients pursue more stable returns with less market risk. 

Here's what you can expect when you invest with us. 

Institution-Level Planning & Investing

Some call it overkill for the average investor, but we call it stewardship. With each of our clients, we use the same tools as institution-level endowments, foundations, and pension funds: Personal Investment Policy Statements, individual Financial Plans, and a tactical asset allocation investment strategy. Combined, these can help you work toward more stable returns, dampen volatility, and mitigate your investment risk. 

Investing Based Upon Your Personal Financial Plan

We believe your portfolio should change as your life and needs do. Does your allocation change if your income needs change? Is it managed to achieve your personal tax objectives? Can you exclude certain asset classes that you are not interested in investing in? 

We take into account your cash-flow needs, investment risk tolerance, time horizon, tax status, and other personal considerations every time we decide to buy or sell investments from your accounts. 

In-House Analysis and Forecasting 

Investment strategy is complicated, and those aiming to build and preserve their capital don't buy and hold, chase the latest hot tip, or invest because 'it did well last year.' 

Our tactical approach is proactive, disciplined, and based upon where we see the markets and economies heading. Our in-house team of analysts and portfolio managers regularly assesses the risk and return potential of each asset class in order to decrease risk in overvalued sectors and enhance returns in undervalued ones. This helps us follow what we believe is still the best investment strategy of all time: Buy low, sell high.

Ongoing Financial Planning, Included in Your Advisory Fee 

We agree: Creating a financial plan and stuffing it in a drawer is a complete waste of money. True financial planning is an ongoing conversation about how every major financial decision affects your present and your future. We'll help you analyze and understand how your decisions today about buying, selling, and investing will affect your cash flow, tax bill, and life tomorrow. We're both: Tactical Investment Managers and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals, and you benefit from that experience.
