Investment Philosophy

The world we live in is beautiful and exciting, and it is also volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. The investing landscape is a challenging and potentially dangerous one, littered with obstacles and pitfalls. However, it is also rich with opportunities. Our focus is to pursue opportunities while keeping risk paramount in our considerations.

During the past several decades, ultra-wealthy investors and institutions such as pensions, foundations and endowments have dramatically changed the way they manage their portfolios in order to achieve higher returns with less volatility. Different markets demand different solutions: Efficient markets call for indexing; less efficient markets reward active management; alternative investments provide risk management and enhanced yield opportunities, both of which are crucial in this low interest rate, highly correlated traditional market environment in which we find ourselves.

At Northern Lights Capital, we help our clients with $1 to $5 million portfolios manage their investments in the same way these institutions and ultra-wealthy people do. Institutional-style portfolio management for individual investors in our view is an enhanced focus on loss mitigation rather then return-chasing and we take a holistic view of our clients’ financial and life situations to design individualized portfolios that meet their specific needs.

We believe dedication to our professional craft and humility are two of the key components to our success. While many investment professionals focus on gathering assets under management as quickly as possible through a cookie-cutter, non-personalized approach, we prefer to choose our clients carefully to ensure we are a right fit for each other. Our philosophies and values have to be in alignment, and our personalities have to mesh well. After all, we are looking to build a lifelong relationship with our clients, not a short-term, opportunistic, transactional-based one.
