While looking in the rear-view mirror can provide us historical context and data, there is a reason our windshield is bigger than our rear-view mirror, we need to see what is coming at us on the road ahead. We believe successful investing begins with a long-term view. We utilize forward looking risk, return and correlation assumptions for different asset classes to develop our opinions about what we believe may likely happen over the long term. This is in contrast to the typical approach which relies on historical data as the foundation of the asset allocation. This is a rationale, disciplined approach that removes the emotional aspect of asset allocation and avoids trend chasing behavior.
Using the risk, return and correlation assumptions from step one, our objective is to optimize the asset allocation and build “efficient portfolios” from the selected asset classes. Generally, investors expect to receive a higher return for assuming additional levels of risk. Efficient portfolios are designed in an attempt to maximize the return potential at each level of risk.
We utilize both active and passive investment options in attempt to minimize investment expenses and maximize your investment return. When it comes to searching for active investment managers, only managers that meet stringent quantitative and qualitative requirements are utilized. We look for managers that add value through their investment selection process, rather than the effects of the market.
We continually monitor every element of the process to ensure that we are providing an high quality program. This monitoring includes:
