Our Investment Philosophy
Many firms try to make their investment process seem complicated and opaque. We aim to make our investment process simple and transparent.
We believe that good investing is based on evidence. This means focusing on what academic research has shown to work over time. While there are a number of things that have been shown to work over time, at its core good investing requires a long-term focus, low turnover, and a dedication to minimizing costs.
What we think matters most to clients is investing in a strategy that they can stick with, through good and bad markets.
On Wall Street, long term is often measured in days, weeks, or months. We focus on making a smaller number of longer term decisions
We construct portfolios based on what academic research has shown to be effective over longer periods of time.
We seek to get value in excess of what we’re paying. The higher the internal cost of an investment vehicle, the harder that is to achieve over the long term. All else equal, we prefer lower costs to higher costs.
Too much activity in a portfolio tends to be an enemy of returns. More activity tends to lead to higher costs and greater tax bills.
