One doesn't exist without the other.
Clients don’t hire us to make them wealthy. They hire us because they're already wealthy and want to keep it that way.
Of course we want returns to be high. But we know risk involves strategy and careful analysis. We want to remain on pace to achieve the best outcomes for you, the client.
Your trust in our processes is of the utmost importance.
The upper left area of the brain processes facts and thinks analytically. Likewise, the upper left quadrant of a risk and return chart is built on data. That’s where we aim to be via our DataDriven Process>, the low risk and high return section.
The lower right portion of the brain controls emotional thinking and responses. You don’t want emotions managing your money. But most financial advisors who aim for the upper right, or high risk/high return quadrant, almost always end up in the lower right, or high risk/low return section. By quantifying risk, we position our portfolios to avoid the lower right.
