Strategies

Our team builds both fixed income (bonds) and equity (stocks) separately managed accounts.  Thus, our research is a blend of economic, earnings, and credit analysis, which uncovers interesting opportunities.  For example, fixed income price improvement specific to one security has in some circumstances been an early indicator of a credit problem resolution with eventual earnings and stock price improvement.  Likewise, fixed income price deterioration can be an early indicator of an eventual equity decline.

Our process is disciplined.  In our equity approaches, we have always maintained a respect for diversification and valuation standards and focus on providing satisfactory returns with less risk over a market cycle.  In our fixed income approach, we strive to optimally balance risk, return, yield, and liquidity by managing duration, quality, structure, and sector selection.  We build portfolios of high quality individual bonds and not mutual funds or ETFs.
