The foundation of our investment approach is strategic asset allocation—the practice of identifying and assembling the appropriate mix of asset classes to maximize returns at a given level of risk. Our recommendations are based on a longer-term, strategic view that we consistently assess and dynamically adjust based on market insights and expectations. We complement this longer-term framework by anticipating and acting on shorter-term market swings or disconnects between and within asset classes. The ability to navigate sporadic opportunities and risks in this way, while maintaining a long-term, disciplined course, is critical to investment success today.
To make the most of opportunities, we also look beyond traditional asset classes to issues deep within asset classes, whether by leveraging brief sub-asset class anomalies or identifying how a specific investment class can serve a given portfolio purpose. We believe this more granular, adaptive and very active approach to asset allocation best positions our clients to realize or exceed goals, by maximizing opportunities and mitigating the risks that this ever-changing and challenging investment environment presents.
