At Alison Wealth Management, our investment approach is based on a belief in markets.
Rather than relying on futile forecasting or trying to outguess others, we draw information about expected returns from the market itself—letting the collective knowledge of its millions of buyers and sellers set security prices.
We believe there are two components that make up investment performance: Beta and Alpha
Beta is the risk of the overall stock market.
Accepting market beta means we should be rewarded with market like returns. We feel we can capture those market returns at the lowest possible cost to our clients through a passive investment approach, similar to index fund investing, to support our baseline investment performance.
Alpha is the excess return of an investment relative to a benchmark index.
We utilize a multi-dimensional approach to capture long-term alpha by adding strategic managers who rely on the same technology used by some of the most sophisticated investors and institutions around the world to help measure the impact of decisions, quantify risks and identify performance drivers. These managers helps power quantitative & fundamental investment analysis, research, and forecasts as well as their own judgment and experience in making decisions on which assets to buy and sell to add value to your investment portfolio.
To implement this approach, we leverage relationships with some of the biggest asset managers in the world such as Vanguard, BlackRock, & Dimensional Fund Advisors.
