Investment Philosophy

All investment options (e.g. stocks, bonds, mutual funds) for a client’s portfolio originate within the Investment Management Division, which includes eight investment professionals who manage client accounts and perform research on new investment ideas as well as existing investments held.  All new investment options go through a rigorous, multi-step review process in which we consider the characteristics, risks and opportunities of each individual investment. The firm’s investment process revolves around teamwork. There is no individual solely responsible for the above items.  Instead, these investment management related duties are accomplished through group collaboration within the Investment Division.
