What is the Capital Preservation Process?
Unbiased. Uncompromised. Uncomplicated.
Capital Preservation Portfolios, plus Managed Portfolios is an innovative approach to investment management that was developed with our clients in mind. Our core principles of diversification, transparency, and cost efficiency, serve as the foundation for all of our investment decisions. With too many investment solutions to choose from, this helps to keep us focused on what matters most – helping you steward your wealth to meet your financial goals.
We believe investment portfolios should be structured in a way that minimizes risk without compromising growth. To accomplish these goals, we adhere to a hybrid philosophy that combines two strategies. On the one hand, we employ tactical asset allocation, a moderately active approach that rebalances holdings in various categories to take advantage of strong market sectors. This is in contrast to the strictly passive “buy and hold” strategies that were once popular.
We then add a layer of permanent portfolio theory, which was developed in the 1970s by Harry Browne.
At its core, permanent portfolio theory holds that, if investments are spread evenly across stocks, precious metals, government bonds and cash, they can achieve positive returns while suffering very modest volatility — under any economic conditions.
Preserving capital, while also realizing growth and providing income, requires precise planning and research. We employ a distinct process to assess every eligible security across a range of asset classes that we would contemplate investing in.
The objective of the Capital Preservation Portfolio is to provide long-term capital appreciation and capital preservation.
