We help our clients by building investment solutions that pursue higher expected returns in a systematic way.

  1. Firstly, we apply stringent academic research from some of the finest investment minds in the world to identify sources and dimensions of higher expected returns.
  2. We then design portfolios to systematically capture those sources of higher expected returns.
  3. Finally, we construct and maintain portfolios that are low cost, tax efficient and highly diversified whilst avoiding unnecessary turnover and trading costs.

As much as we use evidence and science to construct portfolios, it is patience, discipline and human emotions that will ultimately determine the success of our investment strategies.

Our ongoing counselling helps our clients understand how investment markets operate, which in turn helps them adhere to their longer-term investment plan and significantly improve its chance of success.

Please note: Portfolio performance may differ from client to client for various reasons (for example, client needs for higher cash levels and requirements to keep long held existing assets). Performance may also vary based on the time of initial investment. Past performance is not an indication of future performance.
