Let us help you grow more than wealth


Investment philosophy

Income is key to my investment philosophy. I provide a conservative balanced approach for my clients’ portfolios. Bonds, CD’s, Municipal Bonds, and other conservative income investments make up the fixed income component. The bonds are balanced with high quality blue chip, dividend growing stocks of US and International Companies. I seldom buy non-dividend paying stocks.

In addition to allocating clients monies to this balanced approach, I also focus on IRA’s, retirement plans, estate planning, and a wide range of other services RBC Wealth Management has to offer.

By using a conservative income style, my clients have the potential to receive a steady flow of income but also principal growth through the stocks. I use a contrarian style of investing. This is done by buying investments which are temporarily out of favour. This low ball buying can help reduce volatility in my clients’ portfolios. The income and defensive approach help my clients sleep well at night (SWAN). The contrarian approach enables clients to buy at distressed prices and to sell when those investments hit their fair prices. The defensive income oriented approach and buying out of favour investments can help mitigate some of the portfolio volatility. I take a longer term view with specific price targets and ignore the short term ups and downs.

A new phase

The activation of two of our key recessionary tripwires portends a new phase for equities—and investment strategy. Investors may need to get more defensive in coming months, as the risk-reward balance for equities could become less favorable.
