About Us

Our Values

Sometimes the most important financial decisions don’t involve money; they involve people. Who do you start a relationship with? What is the criteria by which you choose? Numbers and figures are measurable. People are measured differently. Trust. Honesty. Integrity. These are our values.

 

Our Philosophy

Our investment approach is guided by 3 principles:

Asset allocation drives long term return and risks of a portfolio. We believe client portfolios should be guided by an appropriate asset allocation that is consistent with the long term financial objectives and risk temperament of the client.

Diversification is important for wealth preservation. We believe clients should invest globally, across various asset classes and sectors. The inclusion of an asset in a portfolio should be compensated in returns or acts to reduce portfolio risk.

Superior and sustainable returns in the long run are driven by value and quality. Chasing prices and buying overvalued investments negatively impacts portfolio performance. Taking a long term view is important for investment success.
