Our Value-Driven Investment Strategy

​​
Diversified and Economically Balanced

  • Asset allocation explains more than 90% of investment return Variability

  • Modern portfolio theory: maximum return at desired risk level

  • A Balanced asset allocation (equities, bonds, commodities and currencies) performs well in all economic environments (growth, recession, inflation)


Value-Driven Asset Allocation

  • Buy assets at a discount to its intrinsic value (buy low, sell high)

  • Expected return and volatility determine optimal risk allocation

  • Mitigate risk as cycle matures and risk-reward deteriorates


Asset Selection

  • Value and Price Momentum strategies outperform buy and hold

  • Must be adequately rewarded to assume additional risk


Risk Management

  • Volatility, Trend, Price Momentum and Relative Strength

  • Hedge Equity Exposure in Overvalued and Declining Markets

  • Rebalance and Tax-Harvest Portfolio



The goal of our Value-driven Investment Strategy is to provide responsible investment management to investors seeking capital appreciation, balanced with risk management and preservation of capital.
