Investment Process

  • In-Depth Valuation Analysis
    We analyze capital markets with a valuation lens to find ways we can get more than we’ll pay for, and gauge market sentiment to help ensure we’re taking a contrarian look at markets.

  • Develop Asset Class Views
    Our asset allocation best thinking stems from valuation-based opportunities in stock and bond markets, as we seek to maximize return for a given level of risk.

  • Investment
    Selection

    Our manager research team meets personally with managers to evaluate their investment styles using a five-pillar system to identify the most appropriate strategies to include in our portfolios.

  • Portfolio
    Construction

    When building portfolios, we look at the whole picture. Considering risk and return characteristics of investments may adjust our asset class thinking as we bring pieces together into a portfolio.

  • Ongoing Monitoring/Adjusting
    As markets change, so do our portfolios. Our investment team monitors them each day to stay well-positioned and risk-aware through the market’s ups and downs.
