Asset allocation is an investment strategy that aims to balance risk and reward by apportioning portfolio assets to an individual's goals, risk tolerance, and investment horizon. The process of determining how a portfolio should be built is based on capital market assumptions for each asset class. There is not a simple formula that can find the right allocation mix for every individual. However, most investment professionals believe that asset allocation is one of the most important decisions that investors make. Selecting individual securities is secondary to the way that they are allocated in stocks and bonds which will be the primary determinant of investment results.
(*Asset Allocation does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. It is a method used to help manage investment risk.)
We want our clients to understand the role each investment plays in their portfolio by defining each asset class in one of three categories:
We view our initial meetings with you as the most important step in our process. Every piece of advice we provide is predicated upon our ability to understand and connect with you.
Wealth planning is essential in order to provide the most impact on transferring wealth to future generations or philanthropic endeavors. No amount of investment returns can overcome poor planning.
Portfolio construction is the process of understanding how different asset classes and their weightings impact each other, performance and risk. By taking a top-down approach based on risk tolerance and investment objectives, you then select the individual investments. This ultimately provides a better chance of meeting your goals with the level of risk and time horizon you are comfortable with.
Our reporting technology allows us to communicate performance and valuations to custom goals and objectives.
We believe frequent conversations and regular formal reviews for each client's portfolio is essential to building a lasting relationship and mutual trust. Rebalancing the portfolio to meet strategic objectives, while recognizing the certainty of taxes, is always weighed against the unpredictable markets.
