Confidence about your investments requires being clear about your goals and comfortable with the advice you receive to reach them. That comfort comes the trust we work to earn, starting with our first meeting. Many investors believe the key to success relies on owning a diversified group of investments over a long period of time, but as we have recently experienced that approach has not been successful. When the markets are volatile we believe it is important to try to avoid deep losses to your portfolio. To do this we focus on the managers process he uses to manage your wealth as opposed to just focusing on the types of investments they make.
