Rethink the traditional portfolio: Skirting conventional stock/bond ratio plays, we seek market inefficiencies looking to mitigating our downside while earning significant risk-adjusted returns. Our finger is always on the pulse of global economic trends, poised to pivot on our Risk-On, Risk-Off philosophy. During low-risk environments, we embrace high exposure in public investments. During high-risk market conditions, we pull back and wait for an opportunity to strike. At Ascent, we often recommend investments in venture capital, pre-IPO, growth capital, real estate and other alternative investments while providing special expertise outside the realm of ordinary wealth management. Our approach to investing is grounded in tried-and-true methods. We invest in fields where we are confident in our probability of long-term success for our partners.
