Our Approach

Asset Allocation is responsible for more than 90% of portfolio performance. Stock selection and market timing make only a minor contribution to performance. This provides the framework for managing risk, with an emphasis on: core–satellite investment strategy; allocations to high Alpha asset classes, including Small-Cap, Micro-Cap and Emerging markets; and allocations to real assets such as Commodities, Energy MLPs, Infrastructure and REITS.


Highly regulated oversight and review process:

  • Weekly Investment Committee meetings
  • Monthly Reg. 9 Oversight meetings
