Investment Philosophy

Risk management

Investment is a dynamic process in which we seek to optimize a portfolio’s performance in keeping with the risk level acceptable to the client.

Asset allocation

We emphasize asset allocation, which accounts for an average of 90% of the variability in a portfolio’s performance. Asset allocation needs to be readjusted frequently to match the client’s goals at all times.

Cost control

A sure way of enhancing performance is to reduce costs, which is why our portfolios focus on exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These provide low-cost replication of the performance of the various stock indices.

Tax efficiency

By putting taxation in the forefront, we seek to maximize the after-tax yield on our clients’ investments.

Long-term view

A number of studies have proven that investors’ worst enemy is not the market but investors themselves. We must therefore take a long-term view in guiding our clients to prevent emotion from interfering with their yields.


We apply the same values at work as we do at home and in our social lives.

Ethics are the hallmark of our work. We pay careful attention to every detail and ensure compliance with the rules that govern our profession.

Integrity is the cornerstone of mutual trust. We make it a priority to forge healthy, trust-based relationships with our clients.

Transparency means that we provide you with clear information about your financial situation and explain the various options available to you.

Discipline enables us to monitor all investment activities every day and respond to market opportunities.
