The disciplined wealth management process focuses on fundamental elements to help ensure proper portfolio design and implementation through:

 

  • Drawing on the intellectual capital and resources from internal and external partners to complement the team-based approach, utilizing experience, education, and research to help educate clients on investment consideration when building efficient portfolios.

 

  • Focusing on managing principal and seeking returns aligned with each client’s needs and goals. The underlying objective is capital appreciation while maintaining liquidity and managing risks in the fixed income and equity markets.

 

  • Diversifying assets in the portfolio may potentially enhance yield and capital appreciation while being sensitive to the tax consequences of making changes within a portfolio.

 

  • Aligning portfolios based on the clients’ goals and objectives, given the investment environment, by adding traditional and alternative asset classes to create diversification and potentially enhance performance over time.

 

  • Using a mix of active and passive managers to help position the clients’ portfolios to take advantage of the potential opportunities in the market.

 

  • Assessing asset managers performance against the appropriate benchmark as well as conducting due diligence.

 

  • Periodically rebalancing investment portfolios to align assets with intended allocations and to respond to market changes, volatility and global events.

 

  • Proactively monitoring portfolios and making tactical decisions to adjust asset allocations and reposition client portfolios based on existing and expected market conditions aiming to improve the client’s investment experience over time.

 

 

We strive to help clients become more knowledgeable and confident in their financial situation.
