Investment Management for Individuals & Families

An Approach to Managing Your Wealth, Tailored to Your Needs

Extensive resources come together in personalized investment solutions.

Our Approach

Your portfolio is built on research and analysis by hundreds of global investment professionals. Those insights help us determine how to allocate and diversify your assets, which funds and managers have earned the right to be a part of your strategy, and what solutions to include, from individual stocks to fixed income to alternative assets. Then, we stress test your portfolio to understand, and prepare for, how it will react in different markets and scenarios. Working under a fiduciary standard1, we ensure every decision is focused on serving your best interests.

By monitoring and measuring your progress, we help you take advantage of additional opportunities along the way and help ensure your investments stay aligned to the purpose you've set out.

Wealth Strategy Executive

Nancy Kistner:
We start with you and your family as the centerpiece. What's important to you and how can we educate your children to carry on your values. Next, we'll work together to create a blueprint that outlines the current state of your wealth, then play out different scenarios to see how your lifestyle can affect other factors, such as taxes or gifting.

Chief Investment Officer

Chris Hyzy:
Our high conviction thought and insight is what drives our strategy, but what truly makes our approach special is the boots on the ground field research. We meet with countless clients to understand their needs, challenges, and what drives their thinking. Many of them are entrepreneurs who manage businesses in all corners of the world. This gives us the opportunity to assess the real economy as new trends and themes develop from year to year.

Our collective insights help us determine how to allocate your assets, which fund and managers have earned the right to be a part of your strategy, and which investment strategies to include, from individual stocks to alternative assets.

Disclosure:
Impact investing and/or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) managers may take into consideration factors beyond traditional financial information to select securities, which could result in relative investment performance deviating from other strategies or broad market benchmarks, depending on whether such sectors or investments are in or out of favor in the market. Further, ESG strategies may rely on certain values-based criteria to eliminate exposures found in similar strategies or broad market benchmarks, which could also result in relative investment performance deviating.

Alternative Investments Executive

Nancy Fahmy:
Moving beyond stocks and bonds can help you diversify your portfolio, protect against volatility, or accelerate growth.

Disclosure:
Alternative investments such as derivatives, hedge funds, private equity funds and funds of funds can result in higher return potential but also higher loss potential. Changes in economic conditions or other circumstances may adversely affect your investments. Before you invest in alternative investments, you should consider your overall financial situation, how much money you have to invest, your need for liquidity and your tolerance for risk. Alternative investments are intended for qualified and suitable investors only.

Nancy Fahmy:
Our alternative investment and specialty asset management platform can be an important part of your portfolio. And our solutions are flexible, so you can find opportunities to help meet your liquidity needs and risk tolerance.
