Investment Management

Investment Management

With so much information out there about investing, how is someone expected to make the right decisions?  Our 40 year history is anchored in some fundamental investment tenants that endure the test of time.  We sift through the noise and combine contemporary products with time tested methodologies to devise a strategy that is specifically suited to your objectives.

Investment Management Services from Qualified Portfolio Managers You Trust

Are your investments working well together? Meet with us, develop a long term game plan, and we’ll manage and monitor the day-to-day.  Then, go focus your attention where it’s needed most.

Protect Capital; Pursue Growth

Over the life of our firm, we have developed a process we call “Tactical Investment Management”.  The objective is to design an investment strategy that is protective of your current capital, seeks growth, and is flexible enough to adapt to changing market conditions.  Responsible investing is about much more than how your investments performed this year, it’s about how they consistently perform and adapt over your lifetime and what the net contribution is to your financial picture.

Are You Managing, or Micromanaging?

Micromanaging your investment portfolio can introduce a huge amount of stress into your already busy lifestyle.  As your capital base grows and matures, inevitably managing your investments becomes more complicated.  You have better things to do than babysit your stocks.  Take all of that pressure off of your plate and put it on ours.  Use your free time to do what you love – whether that means spending more time with your family, pursuing one of your hobbies, or just curling up with a book more often.
