For years, the industry has distilled portfolio management down to one word: diversification. While this remains a valid idea and should certainly be a part of anyone’s long term investment approach, it shouldn’t end there. Through our experience we have found that simply diversifying stocks and bonds isn’t enough, particularly during difficult markets. By layering in multiple trading styles or models, it’s possible to introduce additional levels of diversification in a multi-dimensional way. We can combine a traditional buy and hold strategy with momentum, structured income, real estate, metals and options, customized to an individual’s needs.
