Our first focus is on risk.  We know investors care deeply about protecting the capital they have worked hard to accumulate.  And as investors approach and enter retirement, managing “sequence risk” becomes even more important.  We seek to improve risk-adjusted returns by prioritizing downside risk (“drawdown”) management.

How?  We believe in systematic, disciplined, and repeatable decision-making powered by the evidence-based insights of consistent, thoughtful research.  Specifically, we focus on the high conviction application of the major quantitative investment “styles” – i.e. value, momentum, carry, defensive, and trend – within tactical asset allocation.
