Our investment process seeks to maximize after-tax return of client portfolios for a given risk tolerance. We utilize tax-loss harvesting by monitoring unrealized capital gains and losses in client portfolios. When investment exposures can be maintained and wash-sale rules respected, we trade these to realize “tax-loss” assets and offset taxable gains within client portfolios. We also custom-manage concentrated stock holdings that may have very low cost basis in order to balance the goals of diversification with those of minimizing taxable capital gains. We manage taxable and non-taxable investment accounts that include government, corporate and municipal bond-holdings that are appropriate to each account type and that maximize after-tax returns for each client.
Investment portfolios include stocks and bonds that fluctuate in value. We utilize systematic rebalancing to maintain client asset allocations over time. This process adds value over long-periods of time by accumulating stocks that have fallen in price relative to bonds, or vice versa. In this way, portfolio risk profiles are maintained and risk-adjusted returns are enhanced in the pursuit of client investment objectives.
We focus on managing risk within client portfolios by focusing on diversification. The firm diversifies stock holdings in investment portfolios across multiple factors including geography, sector, growth/value and company size. Bond holdings are managed within duration and credit exposure limits while maintaining diversification across issuer, industry and geography exposures. Our approach to diversification maximizes risk-adjusted return and protects client portfolios from concentrated risk and/or poor performance of any one company, sector or associated subgroup of investments.
Using real-time dashboards, unified platforms and innovative reporting tools, we provide timely execution and data-driven clarity on portfolio performance, metrics, benchmarking and asset allocation. Your entire financial picture in one place. Your assets, even those we may not manage, are in one single view making it easier to track your wealth plan. All assets are custodied at one of the premier independent custodians to ensure maximum protection.
