What is your investment philosophy?
We call our approach G/P/S Investing™ which stands for Growth, Preservation, and Stability - the three objectives we have for our investment selection.
Growth is best obtained by a diverse mix of stocks, with a tilt towards areas of the market that have experienced higher than average returns.
Preservation is preserving the value of a dollar by diversifying into real assets like real estate, inflation-protected bonds and foreign bonds and commodities.
Stability is best provided by high quality bonds.
Our approach differs from the vast majority of managed account services by seeking to maximize long-term returns through a more diverse mix of stocks, while managing volatility by not risking our bonds.
Do you purchase exchange-traded funds or mutual funds?
For accounts held at TD Ameritrade, we use no-commission exchange-traded funds since we can access these funds without a minimum purchase requirement.
