We believe that clients' investment needs are best served using a holistic, customized approach that utilizes an open architecture and is free of conflicts of interest. In our view, the best results are driven by the needs of the client rather than the products offered by a firm. We appreciate that our clients possess varied goals for their investments, and we strive to build investment programs that meet those goals while understanding, managing and communicating the associated risks.
By effectively evaluating opportunities across various asset classes, vehicles and providers, we are confident that we can craft the best investment solutions. We have relationships with many firms in our industry, including those that are more boutique-like in nature as well as those that add value by virtue of scope and scale. We feel an approach that is driven solely by a fiduciary-like decision process, which puts the needs of the clients above all else, leads to the most beneficial allocations across the investment spectrum. Utilizing a combination of active and passive approaches where appropriate, we believe that the portfolios that we construct are designed to meet client objectives over time in even the most volatile of market landscapes.
