Portfolio Manager vs. Investment Advisor

 

Why work with a Portfolio Manager instead of an Investment Advisor?
 

  1. Portfolio Managers are fiduciaries who are legally-bound to a duty of care, honesty and good faith. A Portfolio Manager must always put their clients' interests first; therefore, investment decisions must be independent and free from conflict.

A Different Approach to Investment Management

 

 

Traditional investment portfolios consist of two asset classes: stocks (equities) and bonds (fixed-income).

In the past, stocks and bonds tended to move in opposite directions.  We call this negative correlation. When stocks lost value, bonds typically gained in value, and vice versa; this helped offset losses and protect portfolios. 

Increasingly we see stock and bond values move together. We call this positive correlation; which increases volatility and is ultimately bad for a portfolio. The traditional stock/bond portfolio no longer provides the safety and returns it did a generation ago.
