Active Portfolio Management—Not Passive
Passive investing has grown in popularity over the last few decades. And now with the rise of “robo” advisors, passive portfolio management is becoming a more popular investment choice. Large corporations are also getting into the game offering a limited selection of investments to their retirement plan participants. We think this is a mistake because the result can be a watered-down strategy that most likely fails to address your individual goals.
Innovative Asset Allocation
Markets move in cycles. Like produce at the supermarket, there is a “season” for everything—especially for asset allocation. Our approach to asset allocation takes the current climate into consideration. We recognize that there may be times when your portfolio could take on more risk, and other times when we should significantly reduce risk.
Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

Is Your Portfolio in Line with Your Risk?
The first step in our portfolio management process is determining an appropriate asset allocation. But we think of asset allocation as just a target. For example, a moderate portfolio might have a target asset allocation of 60% stocks and 40% bonds. Through our tactical tilting process, we might allow that portfolio to go as high as 75% stocks when conditions are good, but more important, if stocks weaken, we can bring the stock allocation all the way down to just 20% of the portfolio.
Stock investing involves risk, including loss of principal.
Sector Investing—Not a “Set It and Forget It” Approach
Markets are moving all the time. Our portfolios move dynamically with the markets based on the relative strength of each investment.
We use research to add small, incremental improvements at every level of your portfolio. Sectors rotate in and out of favor all the time. In fact, over the last 10 years, the average annual difference between the best performing sector and the worst performing sector was over 30%.1 Our portfolios work toward taking advantage of this. By focusing on relative strength, we can overweight areas of the market expected to do well, while at the same time eliminating others.
No strategy assures success or protects against loss.
Straightforward and Disciplined Investment Advice
Making investment decisions based on emotions is rarely a good idea. By having a predetermined buy and sell strategy, we can make smarter decisions.
