We don’t like to lose money. We encourage clients to take the most conservative route to their goals. Our investment recommendations are intended to work for the client’s long-term goals.We believe in the weak form of the Efficient Market Hypothesis. We don’t engage in market timing or classical technical analysis. We use appropriate mathematical measures of risk and return. The standard deviation is our primary measure of risk and we use the Sharpe Ratio for risk adjusted returns.We believe a tactical asset allocation is the most important determinant for long-term portfolio performance.Wes Shannon
