About Palmerston Group Advisors, LLC

Palmerston Group Advisors, LLC

Palmerston Group Advisors, a firm best known for its Margin of Safety discipline, built its strategy only after carefully studying the best in the business. Consider: 1. Few fund managers have genuinely market-beating records of ten or more years. 2. Most of this elite group uses a version of Margin of Safety, the skill of buying assets when "on sale" at a deep discount to their true value. Most excel in bear markets. 3. Few advisors strategically focus on these top managers or their investment ideas when creating client portfolios. Nor do many independent firms focus on these managers when offering allocation advice. In contrast, Palmerston sees these top managers as a huge asset for our clients. We start with what works best, and thus use Margin of Safety for all clients. For client portfolios, we use the ideas and often the (no-load) funds of managers with proven, profitable records.
