A thoughtful, objective approach to portfolio management

Our goal is to help clients Pursue Better™ and enjoy the best experience possible. Our investment management consulting services are holistic and comprehensive and follow a disciplined approach shaped by decades of research to determine the most efficient investment policy.

We believe that security prices reflect all publicly available information as intense competition among market participants drives prices toward fair value. Our comprehensive approach includes implementing an asset allocation strategy, managing your investments for the long-term, taking advantage of proper tax strategies.

At IDA, our investment approach rests on four key ideas:

  1. Markets Work
    Capital markets do a good job of fairly pricing all available information and investor expectations about publicly traded securities.
  2. Diversification is Key
    Comprehensive, global asset allocation can neutralize the risks specific to individual securities. Including Alternatives in a portfolio has the potential to reduce volatility and increase returns.
  3. Risk and Return are Related
    The compensation for taking on increased levels of risk is the potential to earn greater returns.
  4. Portfolio Structure Explains Performance
    The asset classes that comprise a portfolio and the risk levels of those asset classes are responsible for most of the variability of portfolio returns.

With our clients specific and individual objectives in mind, we create a strategy designed to take the least amount of risk while achieving the stated goals and objectives.
