Our Investment Philosophy
These principles influence a structured approach to building portfolios around compensated risk factors:
Capital markets do a good job of fairly pricing all available information and investor expectations about publicly traded securities. Efforts to identify undervalued stocks or markets are not rewarded consistently.
Diversification is key
Comprehensive, global asset allocation can neutralize the risks specific to individual securities and enables investors to scientifically employ the risk factors that offer higher expected returns.
Risk and return are related
The compensation for taking on increased levels of risk is the potential to earn greater returns.
Portfolio structure explains performance
The asset classes that comprise a portfolio and the risk levels of those asset classes are responsible for most of the variability of portfolio returns.
