We believe every investment objective can be broken in three categories:
Preservation : used to preserve lifestyle and address Personal Risk: “You must protect yourself from the anxiety of a dramatic decrease in your standard of living. The devastating impact of not being able to meet your basic needs regardless of the performance of the financial markets.”
Appreciation: used to maintain lifestyle and address Market Risk: “You must maintain your lifestyle by earning a rate of return in the financial markets that is comparable to the increase in the cost of living. Thus, you will have to take on market risk. This is risk that cannot be diversified away through portfolio optimization.”
Creation: used to enhance lifestyle and address issues of Concentrated Risk: “To address wealth creation and/or fulfill your aspirational goals you may decide to allocate capital to investments or business adventures that involve substantial idiosyncratic risk.”
………… Our customized portfolios and alternative investment solutions address each element.
