Our Investment Philosophy
Our investment philosophy is founded on a disciplined approach to capturing above-average returns while minimizing risk through sector diversification and fundamentally-sound securities.
To our investors, this means:
- We believe that consistent investment management is crucial to achieving superior performance from medium-risk assumptions.
- We choose mutual funds using a long-range investment strategy that consists of a blend of high-quality growth and value equities.
- We believe in the long-term advantage of maintaining a fully-invested, diversified portfolio over market timing.
- We avoid market fads and changing investment styles, having learned through experience the benefit of riding out inevitable market cycles.
- We believe that volatility in the equity and fixed income markets is not only natural, but healthy, providing opportunities for the investor. In general, we try to add holdings when the market shows weakness, and lighten up when markets show strength.

A Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees IRA gets an acronym that describes it pretty well: SIMPLE. You can contribute to an individual tax-deferred retirement plan either for yourself or your employees. Match employee contributions up to 3% of their salary and take tax-deductions for your company’s contributions.
A Simplified Employee Pension Plan (SEP) is an easy way for your business to contribute directly to an employee’s retirement savings. You can better provide for your employees’ retirement with a higher contribution maximum than other accounts
