Let us help you grow more than wealth


 

Investment philosophy

My equity strategy centers around buying high quality companies with a solid long-term outlook, when short-term conditions, either market related or company specific, create an attractive entry price. I believe that income is an important aspect of total return and therefore seek stocks with an attractive dividend profile and utilize covered call writing to manufacture additional return.

My fixed income strategy focuses on a core high quality bond ladder, which may include municipal bonds, CD’s or corporate bonds. I will often supplement this portfolio with funds that invest in high yield corporate or foreign bonds, to provide yield enhancement and diversification to the bond portfolio.
