We work in partnership with our clients as stewards of their financial futures:
The process of investment management is highly individualized and should not be thought of as pre-packaged. We believe that capital preservation is as important, if not more, than capital growth-particularly in a turbulent economy. We are neither “buy and hold” managers nor active traders. Rather, we employ an approach called “dynamic asset allocation” through which we make adjustments regularly. Each portfolio has a strong foundation of low volatility income-producing securities, both fixed-income and equity. We pair this with a variety of growth investments including core holdings for a longer term horizon, and sector specific positions that are more opportunistic. We review portfolio results continuously and furnish client performance reports on a quarterly basis. Portfolio performance information is also available to clients online and on demand via Cambridge Statements.
Our steps to effective investment management are:
- Define client’s goals and objectives, constraints and concerns, and available resources
- Draft an Investment Policy Statement (IPS)
- Determine appropriate asset allocation and select suitable securities
- Implement investment strategy
- Monitor results and make adjustments when necessary
We customize a plan that integrates our client’s objectives within a larger, overall financial strategy. We evaluate each client’s income and expenses, net worth, liquidity, college savings, investment approach and performance, retirement planning, tax efficiency, and estate planning. Once the financial plan is drafted and reviewed, we serve as an important conduit to client’s other advisors, and our trusted partners, to implement the various action items. Client meetings offer an opportunity to review investment and planning results, discuss non-financial issues and consider life events that could have an impact on a client’s financial priorities.
Most people work very hard to build wealth, few take the time to properly protect the assets that they do have- or will need in the future. Building a solid financial foundation means being prepared for the unexpected. No amount of financial planning can prevent a debilitating injury, premature death or natural disaster. But the proper insurance coverage can make the difference between financial harm and stability. We will work with you to identify any coverage shortfalls in the areas of life insurance, disability income, long term care, property & casualty, health insurance, and personal & professional liability.
