The Invariant Advantage

We believe in delivering value. As fiduciary investment managers, whether you’re a private client or advisor partner, your best interest is our best interest. Transparency, integrity, and professionalism are at the core of who we are and the services we provide.

Our Investment Philosophy

The primary determinants of investment success are appropriate asset allocation and client behavior

 

 


Portfolio management and financial planning working in tandem is critical for achieving successful client outcomes

 

 


Behavioral mistakes can derail even the best investment plans and strategies – therefore, maintaining discipline is critical

Diversification across asset classes, geographies, and sectors improves risk-adjusted returns

 


Most investors do not have a perpetual time horizon. Proactive risk management can be a critical component for preservation of capital over the course of a full market cycle

Diversified Portfolio Investment Process

We offer clients both strategic and tactical asset allocation portfolios. All portfolios are constructed using the investment process described below.

1. We begin by approximating a cap-weighted benchmark and use this as a starting point in our portfolio construction process.

2. Within the constraints of the model, we adjust asset class weights up and down based on our active views.

3. Within asset classes, we then adjust geographical, sector, and factor exposure based on our active views.

4. Next, we determine the most efficient investment vehicles for achieving our desired exposure.

5. This leaves us with the final portfolio, which is reviewed regularly using this process.
