IS IT SAFE OR IS IT RISKY?

Every investment starts with that question. Our research partner Equity Risk Sciences provides the tools to analytically make those initial assessments before we even look at a company. There are times when the odds of large losses are low, and others when the odds are much higher. Our job is to assess those conditions, determine whether a loss might be big or small, and to take into account everything we can learn about the company.

EQUITY RISK SCIENCES

Our partner company, Equity Risk Sciences, provides institutional investors with proprietary risk analytics derived from forensic accounting, data science and the creative application of decades of real world investing experience. Their technology tools to help protect our clients’ capital from losses and to grow it when the opportunities present themselves.

WHAT WE THINK ABOUT RISK

In finance, volatility equals risk and returns are randomly distributed. We understand that view, but we believe the actual risk to consider is the probability of losing money when investing in a public company or the stock market. Our tools help identify when the risk of loss is higher and when it’s lower. We use that info to build what we believe are lower risk portfolios. They look different and perform differently from the “market” because they are supposed to. When the market is risky, our aim is to be in less risky stocks.
