Philosophy & process

Blonkvist Investment Group’s philosophy is the belief that disciplined, model-driven investments generate enhanced risk-adjusted returns. When an investment strategy is expressed in model form, it can be researched and verified. This can provide a rich data set for return and risk management analysis.

We believe:

  1. Asset Classes (stocks, bonds, cash, real estate, commodities, etc.) have historical expected rates of return
  2. Asset allocation is a critical component to the return of a client's portfolio
  3. Diversification adds to risk adjusted individual portfolio returns
  4. Professional managers focused on specific asset classes generate alpha over time
  5. Manager investment styles among asset classes and sectors generate another degree of diversification and alpha over time
  6. Low fees and manager participation in the strategy are key components to success over time
  7. Our team adds value over time through the disciplined application of a rebalancing program

Process:

  1. Determine appropriate allocation to asset classes, market sectors, and investment styles
  2. Identify and invest with managers, who we believe are, in the world's top tier according to our allocation model
  3. Identify specific benchmarks to measure performance of asset classes, sectors, and managers
  4. Review  managers against specific benchmarks and peers
  5. Review the portfolio of managers to help find the most suitable team possible
  6. Rebalance Techniques:
    1.  5% rule
    2.  asset class, sector overbought, oversold rule
    3.  constant evaluation of allocation percentages and asset class returns
  7. Being accountable to each other, the team approach reinforces disciplined and consistent application of investment process
