Broad diversification is more than a theoretical concept: it serves as an actionable strategy deeply rooted in John C. Bogle's investment philosophy.
Following the principles in our Investment Philosophy, our investment officers use low-cost, broad-based total market index funds to manage the controllable risks in your portfolio. This strategy reduces your exposure to various risks such as individual security risk, sector fluctuations, industry concentrations, investing style risks, manager selection risks and geographic risks. The focus remains on market risk, which Bogle viewed as the only risk worth taking for the long-term growth of your portfolio.
Prudent allocation involves a comprehensive evaluation of your investment horizon, risk tolerance, specific investment goals and age. Your age helps us define an appropriate risk level tailored to your life stage. Our investment officers integrate these factors into a custom strategy for effective asset allocation. This strategy aims to align your individual risk tolerance with your long-term financial goals, focusing on reduced fees and diversified investments.
Cost consciousness has a significant impact on your long-term financial outcomes. Our strategy favors index funds known for their low operational and transactional costs. These funds generally have lower portfolio turnover, saving you from extra transaction costs and potential capital gains taxes. We strive to offer an efficient investment experience that maximizes the compounding effect on your capital.
