Mission

Our goal is to build a strong and lasting relationship with you. Drawing on a variety of investment strategies to grow your investments, we provide exceptional service in portfolio and wealth management. Your satisfaction is our number one priority. We’ll walk you through every step, guided by your investment goals and risk tolerance. We make it our mission to get to know you and to provide the best solutions for your needs.

Investment Philosophy

We take a prudent approach to investing. Our goal is to find the right balance between risk and return for your portfolio. We ensure diversification by distributing your assets across different asset classes, economic sectors and geographical areas. This is a key step in the investment process, since asset allocation accounts for 91.5% of variations in portfolio returns. It’s important to rebalance your portfolio regularly to ensure that it remains in line with your investment policy. We select assets using a core-satellite approach, which combines the use of exchange-traded funds, mutual funds and individual securities. Our portfolio management is based on value investing. We seek out high-quality large-cap stocks with reasonable valuations. Plus, since taxes can have a substantial effect on long-term capital growth and returns, we’re careful to select tax-efficient investments.
