Schedule a talk with one of our advisors to learn more about Summitry and how we can help you get a foothold on your financial life.
We admit it. Our approach to wealth management is different. We’ll work with you to develop a financial plan based on your goals and desires and build a customized portfolio to support those goals while offering complementary investment strategies if you’re inclined to higher risk / higher reward options. Our team and resources are at your disposal at every step of your journey.
Here’s how Summitry is different:
Unique Investment Philosophy
We only invest in assets at prices below our estimate of their intrinsic value. Investing well requires attention to the details and an eye toward managing downside risk.
Our investment team is dedicated to doing the rigorous research and continuous monitoring required to identify and invest in companies that meet our guidelines, which means they have:
- strong competitive advantages
- competent, shareholder-friendly management
- favorable long-term growth prospects
- trade in the market at a price materially below the investment team’s calculation of underlying intrinsic value
Comprehensive Investment Strategies
Proprietary in-house managed solutions comprise the CORE of our client portfolios.
Summitry EXPLORE strategies expand the opportunity set for our clients who want small cap and International investments. We delegate authority to best-of-breed, third-party manager teams for security selection to sectors of the capital markets beyond our core strategies.
We apply the same rigor to selecting these third-party managers as we apply to our CORE investments. These managers must share Summitry’s intrinsic value investing philosophy.
The selection of managers is subject to deep due diligence of their team, processes, and historical results through market cycles.
Through a combination of conversations and sophisticated software tools, we’ll determine your investment objectives and current level of risk tolerance, taking into consideration your time horizon, cash flow needs, and growth objectives.
We use objective-based portfolio strategies as a starting point to allocate your accounts across liquid equity and fixed-income securities. Then, customize the portfolio according to your current holdings, concentrated stock positions, or other personal desires.
