The heart of our investment philosophy can be summed up in one word - Diversification. Investing is like many other things in life - it's preferable to focus on what you can control than on what you can't. Investment returns are dictated by financial markets which are largely unpredictable over the short term, but investment risk is something which one can control - and the way to do so is with diversification.
We first start by ensuring proper diversification between the major asset classes - the weighting of which will be determined by your risk profile and investment objectives. Within each asset class, we ensure that there are enough securities to reduce the individual risk associated with any one. For equities, we try to ensure representation from each of the major economic sectors, picking the best opportunities from around the world. On the fixed income side, we diversify from triple A credit government bonds, to investment grade corporate bonds, global bonds, and high yield bonds to add more yield. For taxable accounts we include preferred shares in our fixed income holdings for tax efficiency. Finally, when appropriate, we will include a small portion of alternative investments to benefit from the negative correlation that this asset class gives.
