At Focus Asset Management, our clients come first. That focus on our clients drives the entire wealth management process, helping you connect your financial decision-making to your most important life goals.
We believe in making decisions based on evidence, not emotion. We believe that active management is a losing strategy; that despite claiming otherwise, no one can forecast the future, predict the movement of the market, or pick the next big stock. That’s why we embrace a passive, evidence-based approach to investment management, drawing on decades of academic research to direct our decisions.
We believe in using diversified, low-cost, and risk appropriate portfolios that reduce volatility and limit fees. Reducing volatility can enhance the compound rate of return for each dollar invested based on clients’ individual risk tolerances. It’s a philosophy of discipline, patience and persistence that extends to the rest of our work as wealth managers: To build holistic financial plans that incorporate and align each facet of your family’s financial picture, helping you work towards your long-term objectives while protecting the wealth that you have.
