Many advisors ask hypothetical questions to assign your “risk score”, which then determines the strategy for your entire portfolio. This process doesn’t consider your multiple goals with differing timeframes, and may create inappropriate risk.
We build real relationships with clients. We partner with you to determine when you’ll need money. We take low risk with money you need soon, allowing the opportunity to capture greater returns with money invested for later.
We do this by segmenting your portfolio into timeframes, from next year all the way to 15+ years. Each segment employs one of our 5 strategies, which keeps risk (and emotions) aligned to your needs and goals.
For example, markets reward risk and capture the highest expected returns over long periods of time. It’s appropriate to take this risk with money that can stay invested for 15 years, because over this much time you can ride out market cycles and the fears that might come with short term declines.
Each client receives a unique blend of our strategies, depending on their specific needs. As the years pass by, your money cascades down to the appropriately risked strategy. This approach provides valuable peace of mind during volatile markets and helps ensure the longevity of your portfolio in retirement.
