Strategic Asset Allocation
We begin our investment process by first understanding what risk and reward truly means to each of our clients.
Strategic Asset Allocation serves as a customized long-term roadmap that seeks to anchor the portfolio throughout various market environments.
We moderately tilt asset weights in an effort to capitalize on identified short-term opportunities in the market.
Tactical Overlay reflects a balance between the potential upside, adjusted for conviction level and the incremental increase in market timing risk.
We implement the customized asset allocation with a combination of passive and active strategies.
We select managers and products based on not only their standalone merits but also their roles in the context of a broader portfolio.
Portfolio Implementation seeks to capture the spirit of custom-crafted beta targets while delivering excess alpha on fee- and tax-efficient bases.
Our legacy and moderate size afford us access to a range of limited-capacity investment opportunities.
We look to our proprietary asset allocation model to determine whether an investment may perform a valuable role in a client portfolio, relative to existing offerings.
Our assessment and analysis include a review of the team, the strategy, any performance history, portfolio role/construction and risk management, as well as a summary reference check.
“We believe that access to differentiated products is a key component to delivering investment advice.”
Our client base is UHNW and HNW, which enables us to research and to incorporate both large managers and also smaller funds that are often beneath the reach of larger banks and institutional investors. We are staffed to conduct independent research with a focus on identifying offerings for high-net-worth private investors.
Our team structures funds and direct investments at minimum subscription sizes specifically designed for individual, taxable investors seeking to build customized portfolios.
Our team consists of professionals with extensive hedge fund, private equity, investment banking, and research experience. We have direct experience managing alternative investments and securities portfolios.
