A careful balance of risk and reward

Our objectives are to preserve your wealth, achieve a reasonable rate of return, and counter the erosive effects of inflation and taxes. We believe the formula for capital management should include the key components of skilled investment research, long-term planning and a well-managed professional relationship.

Our long-term strategy is designed to help you pursue your financial goals without assuming unnecessary risk. We know that a proper asset allocation can be an effective way to pursue investment goals. By allocating your capital to a diverse variety of sectors and investments, we attempt to increase the likelihood of generating a more consistent, positive return over the long term.

Depending on your risk tolerance, the economic environment, your specific objectives and other factors, your portfolio may include domestic and global stocks, fixed income, real estate and alternative investments.

Investing involves risk and you may incur a profit or loss regardless of strategy selected, including diversification and asset allocation. International investing involves special risks, including currency fluctuations, differing financial accounting standards, and possible political and economic volatility. Bond prices and yields are subject to change based upon market conditions and availability. If bonds are sold prior to maturity, you may receive more or less than your initial investment. There is an inverse relationship between interest rate movements and fixed income prices. Generally, when interest rates rise, fixed income prices fall and when interest rates fall, fixed income prices rise. Real estate investments can be subject to different and greater risks than more diversified investments. Declines in the value of real estate, economic conditions, property taxes, tax laws and interest rates all present potential risks to real estate investments. Alternative investments involve substantial risks that may be greater than those associated with traditional investments and may be offered only to clients who meet specific suitability requirements, including minimum net worth tests. These risks include but are not limited to: limited or no liquidity, tax considerations, incentive fee structures, speculative investment strategies, and different regulatory and reporting requirements. There is no assurance that any investment will meet its investment objectives or that substantial losses will be avoided.
