Our Process

Successful investing requires a disciplined process and a long-term view. Our client-centered solutions are a reflection of strategies incorporating global trends, values and calculated risks. The focus of every strategy we design is to pursue a healthy rate of return while minimizing draw-downs and losses according to your tolerance for risk.

After a comprehensive consultation with you, we design an investment strategy to reflect a suitable blend of equities, fixed income and cash or cash equivalents. If you desire – and where it is appropriate – we can discuss other risk management strategies for the portfolio, including covered call options. These accounts are directed on an advisory basis, primarily through our discretionary Professional Management Program (PMP) where there are no commission charges, but rather fees paid quarterly based on total assets within the program account. Quarterly performance reports are prepared for regular face-to-face meetings. After implementing an investment strategy, we work closely with you to monitor your ongoing financial needs while working towards your long-term goals.

Investment Philosophy

Integrity, transparency, confidentiality and commitment are the cornerstones of our client relationships. We fully appreciate the gravity of our fiduciary role, and strive to provide comprehensive guidance and prudent solutions that best reflect your investment needs.
