Our Investment Philosophy is centered on the foundations of financial science. By utilizing the advancements of leading financial and economic research, we believe that you can invest more efficiently, accomplish your goals faster, and have a better overall investment experience.
Our approach is based on an enduring belief in the power and efficiency of the markets. Research has shown there is no advantage in trying to guess the winners and losers in the markets, or trying to time the markets. Decades of Nobel Prize winning research has shown us that rather than trying to out-guess the markets, we can achieve higher expected returns by focusing on dimensions of the market that have been proven to out-perform over time.
These foundations are what allow our clients to achieve a better investment experience and have more peace of mind as they work towards their financial goals.
VCM’s custom portfolios, backed by leading academic research, are centered on the following ten principles:
By using these foundations and integrating them with your individual needs, goals, and risk tolerance, we can build a better, more efficient portfolio for you.
