Second Quarter 2017 Newsletter

Periods of political or economic change increase uncertainty and result in a growing number of questions about the impact on financial assets. More questions than answers exist today forcing investors to operate and make decisions in a more ambiguous environment. An effective method of dealing with these unanswered questions is to design high-quality investment strategies that withstand the test of time as investors navigate through different phases of the market cycle.


Political change after a highly contentious Presidential election will inevitably set the tone for the investment environment over the coming year. Against this backdrop, investors will position investments for an ever-evolving landscape and frame the catalysts and drivers likely to shape and define the markets.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Newsletter

Situational awareness is critical for any investor. We must recognize the prevalent risks that exist across the broader economic landscape. Approaching the Presidential election in November, we, along with the rest of the investment community, continue to analyze the market impact of potential outcomes. Against this uncertain backdrop, maintaining a long-term focus is critical as investors address major events on the horizon.



The duration of the current economic recovery recently surpassed the seven year mark, making this cycle one of the longest during the post-World War II era. While extended in length, the economic environment lacks robust growth, resulting in a chorus of calls to further stimulate via public policy measures. However, the economic cycle continues moving in a positive direction, supported by the housing market, a labor market recovery, and a resilient consumer.


Viewing today’s world through a set of risk management lenses allows investors to adopt a cautious, yet more upbeat tone than seen in the press headlines. Market volatility, elevated uncertainty, and heightened stress characterize the current investment environment. However, a healthier consumer, financially stable business sector, and continuing recovery in the housing market offer a strong foundation for the domestic economy.
