Modern Portfolio Theory - Based on Nobel Prize-winning research, we will construct a diversified portfolio that aligns your investment portfolio to your risk profile.

For every level of risk, there is an optimal way to structure a portfolio to maximize the expected return. We will craft an optimized retirement portfolio for you. We will help you manage your portfolio to accommodate market volatility, changing market prospects, and changes in your goals, risk tolerance and planning horizon.

Asset Location – We will reposition your assets in the appropriate investment accounts—e.g., 401(k), taxable account, Roth IRA—to enhance your portfolio’s risk-adjusted returns.

Having a diversified mix of equities and bonds is a critical element of managing your portfolio’s risk. However, this doesn’t mean you should have both equities and bonds in each account—i.e., 401(k), Roth IRA, and taxable accounts. To the contrary, it is better to “locate” each asset in the account that will enhance your portfolio’s risk-adjusted returns and thus lengthen its longevity. We still maintain your portfolio’s target risk level and appropriate asset allocation for you, but we carefully move or re-locate assets into the appropriate account.

Core and Satellite - A strategy we implement to maximize return potential for each level of risk within an optimized portfolio.

We construct "core" or passively managed, indexed portfolio that tracks core equity and fixed income benchmarks. We also construct and align "Satellite" or actively managed portfolios to enhance expected returns. These actively managed portfolio are designed to drive "after tax alpha" or returns beyond a benchmark. A leading investment bank recently stated the result of this strategy is “more efficient portfolio construction with higher return potential and increase diversification.”
