We help our clients think differently about investing.
Many investors believe that focusing on picking the next boom stock and buying before markets go up or selling before they go down is the key to success. However, from our own experience and through scores of academic research papers we know that these emotional and undisciplined behaviours have poor outcomes long-term. It results in most investors not getting the returns they are entitled to from markets.
That’s why we’ve built a firm with a verifiable and defensible investment solution to address that problem. We focus not only on investment returns, but also how you feel every day about your investments. We know our clients are less anxious and worried about their investments than before they worked with us because of our approach.
Below is a quick summary of our better investment experience.
Costs matter, especially over the long term.
Investment managers we use typically cost between 0.20% and 0.50% pa to implement their strategies and are not available to the general public.
We don’t try to predict the daily, weekly or monthly movement of financial markets – and all the research over the past five decades confirms no one else can do this either with any consistency, no matter how big they are or how many analysts they employ.
Rather than try to forecast the future to have a successful investment experience, we focus on capturing the returns available in markets in a systematic way. We practically put financial science to work when building your unique investment strategy.
We help our clients turn down the never ending clatter of opinions, speculation and so-called "news" from the financial media and industry. We help our clients navigate uncertainty by focusing on what's important and provide clarity to their objectives, and then build appropriate investment strategies. It means our clients understand what is an appropriate amount of risk for them to take to achieve their goals.
