Investment Strategies

The following principles shape our investment recommendations:

Diversification: Asset Allocation is widely accepted as the primary determinant of long-term portfolio returns as well as the volatility of returns.
Perspective: Investors who take a long-term approach to investing and can withstand short-term volatility of markets, historically hold a comparative advantage over investors with a short term view.
Risk Control and Knowledge: The ability to identify and adjust risk exposure is critically important to an investment portfolio. In addition, investors should understand the various shapes and forms of risk they incur with any investment.
Insight: Our advice is based upon well-founded principles and is thoughtfully and consistently applied to our client’s portfolios.

Based on these principles, our portfolio construction process emphasizes the following:

  • To define and adhere to strategic asset allocation targets, designed to improve a portfolio’s risk and return profile.
  • The potential reduction of fees and taxes, which can serve to enhance portfolio returns over time.
  • The inclusion of alternative asset classes, which can enhance the risk-adjusted return of an investment portfolio. Such assets may include investment strategies that are non-correlated to stock and bond markets, as well as commodities and precious metals.

Disclosure:
Please keep in mind that diversification does not assure a profit, or protect against loss, while alternative assets have their own specific risks and potential drawbacks.

Tax Strategies and Preparation

Traditional tax firms are backward-looking—merely recording what’s already happened. We take a forward-looking approach. A good tax plan considers all of your options and eliminates surprises. Your financial planner, tax professional and you will work together to plan and implement tax strategies developed during the planning process. Tax planning is especially valuable to clients going through transitions like starting retirement, deciding when to sell rental property, marriage and divorce.

We also pride ourselves on follow-through. Should a client receive a letter or audit notice from a tax authority, we’re here to resolve the issue.

Pension Planning

The decisions around pension choices are far-reaching, since they’re irrevocable once elected. Some questions to consider include: Should I reduce my pension in order to provide an ongoing income stream to a survivor? Would it be better to take a guaranteed (but fixed) income stream for life, or to take a lump sum that I can tailor to my needs? Do I feel more comfortable leaving my assets in the company-managed pension plan or managing the money myself? The answers to these questions vary from person to person, and we can help you evaluate for your own preferences and situation.

By doing a careful analysis of the options, we’ll work with you to uncover untapped resources, reduce tax costs, and look for ways to boost retirement savings.

We’ll walk you through the decisions and provide input on how you can make the best informed decisions for your circumstances.
