OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
We believe that truly successful investing requires a highly disciplined approach.
Rather than trying to chase the highest return in any one year, we adopt a strategic approach to avoid the typical mistakes that are known to erode wealth.
We know that investors can’t control short-term market movements so instead we focus on factors we can control. We base our investment decisions on the following fundamental principles that assist us in staying focused on our clients' investment goals, allowing us to build their wealth over time.
A disciplined approach is not reacting to short-term performance but rather, understanding that some markets, managers or securities may not perform as well as others (and will even reduce in value) from time to time. This is the natural cycle of events and reacting to this unnecessarily can significantly destroy value. Instead, we believe in regular reviews and rebalancing to keep your portfolio on track.
Diversification is spreading your investments across a range of asset classes and allocating your investments across a wide range of assets both domestically and abroad. Diversifying can’t eliminate the risk of loss, but it is a powerful tool for managing risk.
Risk and portfolio construction
In understanding your attitude towards risk, we consider a number of factors to determine how much risk you’re prepared to take to achieve your desired level of return. Your risk profile is the fundamental building block of your investment strategy which drives the allocation between growth and defensive assets.
As an investor you can’t control future performance, but you can control how much you are willing to pay. Reducing the cost of investing is a driving factor to implement tax-effective investment strategies.
We believe in regular reviews and rebalancing to keep your portfolio on track. Rebalancing your investments back to your target asset allocation will help mitigate risk by not being over or under exposed. Subsequently, ensuring your portfolio should continue to achieve your goals.
ABSOLUTE FEE TRANSPARENCY
Our remuneration is generally a fixed, annual fee based on the complexity of each client's affairs, with any investment commissions refunded to you.
We receive no benefit from promoting one investment vehicle over another – every decision is made in your best interest. The bottom line is there are no surprises and there is ultimate transparency around all costs and expenses.
Because we don't develop our own financial products we choose the best fit for each situation. We then provide ongoing strategic advice with relevant and regular management, reviewing and reporting.
This is not a ‘set and forget’ approach - it is highly hands-on with regular communication between your adviser and yourself.
