Reduce Overall Risk
Risk is inherent with all investments, but it can be limited through the implementation of specific asset allocation strategies and risk-management techniques.
Capture Excess Returns
Excess returns are those that exceed what one would achieve through general exposure to the market. We employ a variety of factors to achieve market beating returns.
Higher Risk-Adjusted Returns
The combination of lower risk and higher excess returns leads to enhanced risk-adjusted returns, which is the Holy Grail of Investing. It represents more efficient deployment of capital.
Viewed through the lens of corporate profits, we place a strong emphasis on leading economic indicators and identifying turning points in the economy.
The Market’s Story
Listen closely, and the market will reveal itself through the story of price action. We focus on Primary Trend identification using elements of Dow Theory and technical analysis.
A Nod to Tactical Asset Allocation:
For decades, the investment community has operated under an investment philosophy known as Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA). Also known as buy-and-hold, this approach uses AGE as the primary dependency around which a portfolio is built.
But changes in the nature and volatility of financial markets have rendered that approach to investing both dangerous and outdated. Modern investing now revolves around Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA), where portfolios are constructed based on the future expected performance of various asset classes.
Age is still a factor, but now age is factored into a portfolio in a completely different way.
