Our Investment Strategy
A foundation of our investment strategy rests on the fact that we do not believe in “market timing” or “stock picking”. There is a common belief that the way to invest is to “buy low and sell high”. In actuality, that is impossible to implement, due to the fact that nobody knows when a price is low or high. We help you remove the emotions from the investment process and stick to a disciplined strategy over the long-term.
Prices can always go lower and prices can always go higher.
We base our investment decisions on sound investment research driven out of the institutional world where they manage billions of dollars and have thousands of pensioners relying on them for their monthly income. These institutions are looking for anyway to improve their returns by fractional percentages as it means millions of dollars to them so we look at what they do to manage your investments as generally accepted principals in the investment research.
