Investors who follow a plan have a higher probability of achieving their goals than those who act on their emotions or make frequent changes based on the events of the day. Therefore, we created systematic risk management strategies so investors can handle periodic volatility without abandoning their investment plan.
As a firm, when building client portfolios, we strive for 3 things:
How do we accomplish this? For years we have observed that a key statistic in selecting an investment is upside/downside capture ratio, which measures the degree to which a portfolio has under-performed or outperformed a market benchmark based on monthly returns during periods of market highs and lows.
You can see from the illustration that 60% upside and the 40% downside performs better than the actual index itself. If the percentage decline of the portfolio is less than that of the market, any percentage gain above that decline would result in out-performance. This provides the potential of superior performance over-time with less portfolio volatility. *
Central tenets of our investment process are portfolio construction and risk management. We look to balance shorter-term fears with longer-term needs and objectives, so that clients can remain comfortably committed to their plan. A balanced investment plan and consistent communication are the tools we employ to help our clients work toward their financial goals.
If you are an investor with total investments of $100,000 or more and are interested in managing risk while still having the opportunity for your portfolio to grow, talk to us today.
