In Stableford strategies, technicians analyze fundamental and value factors to inform the entire portfolio picture. A good technician enhances both the fundamental and macro aspects of the investment management strategy. Similar to warning lights on your car’s dashboard, the technician focuses on confirming the narrative trends (dark dashboard), noting when the technical trends are no longer moving in unison with the consensus narrative (warning light).
As a fiduciary, Stableford Capital is held to the highest standard of care and always puts clients’ best interests first. The registered investment advisor firm does this by offering integrated advisory services – advisory, tax and investment all under one roof – and keeping constant communication with clients. Every recommendation is explained and clients are educated on the process.
While hiring an asset management firm can be a major undertaking there are a few points to narrow in on to find the right firm for you. Get to know the advisor and his or her experience. Make sure the interest is reciprocated. Is the advisor client-focused, responsive, and does he or she really listen? Then find out about the firm’s investment philosophy and how often your portfolio will be reviewed.
Stableford operates on a different investment philosophy from other financial advisory firms: adjusting based on market environment and client need. To do this we have to constantly assess risk and maintain open communication with clients – during both up and down markets. Stableford is not a manager of managers and the investment strategies are all proprietary.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, working remotely was picking up speed and many companies were already practicing it on some level, including Stableford Capital. Now with stay at home mandates, it is the new normal for most industries, companies and workers. Financial firm performance management is changing in light of the new working environments, and the changes are likely to stay in effect long after the crisis.
From certified financial planners to analysts, strategists, and advisors, Stableford staff utilizes their diverse backgrounds to create a unique culture. The integrated advisor approach takes the middleman out of communication, buys, and sells. This, on top of the various perspectives and institutional experience of each member of Stableford leadership, leads to a well-rounded and gratifying investment experience for clients.
