Our interests are aligned with our clients. We bring professional investment expertise to your side of the table, as part of your own team.
- We concur with academic research that states that asset allocation, not stock selection, is the primary determinant of portfolio outcomes.
- Our focus is getting the strategic asset allocation right for a client's needs, and dynamically adjust that allocation over time in line with portfolio objectives, using a rules-based approach.
- For traditional investments (public markets), we are index investors (using both traditional cap-weight and alternative weight indices) so use ETFs to gain exposure to different, asset classes, factors and other exposures as part of a diversified portfolio.
- For alternative investments (including private markets that cannot be indexed), we look to Liquid Alternative strategies that have differentiated risk-return characteristics.
