Our Investment Philosophy
Our investment philosophy is comprised of the following three pillars:
- Limited tactical asset allocation – not trying to time the market, since most people have not been able to do so consistently over time. We stick to a long-term approach by focusing on the target asset allocation.
- Passive investing (index funds or ETFs) where it makes sense, such as large-cap US stocks, and active investing (non-index funds) for areas where managers have had more success beating the benchmark, such as high yield bonds.
- Portfolio rebalancing regularly, which forces buying low and selling high. This is hard for most folks to do, since emotionally most of us are wired to do the opposite.

Our Service Fees
Investors who work with an advisor tend to fare better. Advisors help to make sure your assets are invested appropriately, encourage right long-term behavior, implement the best asset allocation strategy, keep costs down, and monitor and rebalancing effectively. While a typical advisor fee is about 1%, a Vanguard study shows that working with an advisor can add about 3% in net returns each year. Learn more.
