Our equity approach is to buy and hold a diversified portfolio of high quality stocks that have a record of strong and consistent earnings growth.
- Most of our equities are large, recognizable names, often with a multinational scope.
- Diversification spreads the equity risk among 30 to 40 individual stocks and among the major Standard & Poor’s 500 industry groups.
- The buy and hold aspect of our strategy is intended to minimize commissions and capital gains taxes.
Our fixed income philosophy is to create a portfolio of bonds with a laddered maturity schedule, which reduces interest rate risk over time, conserves principal, and assures short-term liquidity. We have capabilities in Treasuries, Agencies, corporate and municipal bonds.
