Our Portfolio Service
Over the past six months, our daily lives have been dramatically impacted by a global pandemic, changing how we view and value the world around us and how we interact with it. Investors find themselves facing a level of uncertainty never experienced before. Risks of a different sort are popping up each day, making unease part of our everyday life, from family to financial stability. Global stock markets have experienced unparalleled volatility, with historic drawdowns followed by historical recoveries.
This type of volatility can be disastrous for the average investor, as most do not know their risk tolerance until it is too late. Even if they did, they don’t know how to contain risk when it comes to portfolio investing. Panicked investors sold at the bottom last March, losing much of their hard-earned wealth along the way for they missed the recovery. Experiences like these can often time scar investors permanently, scaring them away forever.
We’re here to help. Based upon decades of investing experience advising the top 1%, we’re here to give back, to design portfolio suggestions with Main Street in mind that will protect during periods of abject, unexpected, and unparalleled market volatility. We call our portfolio an all-weather portfolio because it protects investors in all weather conditions, namely in up, down, and sideways markets, by sheltering portfolio performance from the unexpected. We also call it “Holy Grail” investing. Here are the key principles to Holy Grail investing:
Key Principles of Holy Grail Investing
- Win by not losing.
Let your profits run and cut your losses short.
- Optimize expected return.
Put the probability of gain on your side.
- Build wealth reliably.
No matter what the market conditions.
Better Portfolios Are Diversified Portfolios
Better performing portfolios are diversified portfolios, a notion that goes well-beyond the common understanding of most investors. Meaningful diversification is not about growth vs. value, or high-cap vs. low. It’s about allocating smartly across less-correlated stocks, interest rates, bonds, real estate, currencies, commodities, precious metals, countries, sector-focused funds, and alternative asset classes, long and short.
That’s a mouthful, but that’s what it takes. Meaningful diversification is not just essential, it’s consequential when it comes to containing portfolio-level volatility. Meaningful diversification leads to less risk and far higher risk-adjusted returns. Here are the key principals of portfolio diversification:
Key Principles of Portfolio Diversification
- Diversified holdings demand uncorrelated investing.
Meaningful diversification contains portfolio volatility.
- Containing portfolio volatility lowers risk.
Lowering risk leads to higher risk-adjusted returns.
- Higher risk-adjusted returns drive profitability.
And keep you safe in all weather conditions.
