The firm uses a top-down, bottom-up fundamental approach to portfolio management. Our top-down approach looks at emerging trends in the world to identify certain sectors of the economy that we believe will prosper in the coming years. The bottom-up approach looks at the financial health of individual companies in these sectors or industries to try and identify the leaders. Most clients are divested of fossil fuel positions and utilize both individual stock positions along with funds and ETFs.
Asset management services include monitoring and adjusting portfolio allocations and researching the selection of investments.
