Investment Planning in Tri Cities & Thumb
At Recker Financial, we believe the investment process and your portfolio should be connected to and driven by the personal goals and values of your financial plan. It should be sophisticated, yet not complicated. We also believe in the power of expertise and providing our clients access to some of the best investment minds in the business. Our baseline philosophy is based on Modern Portfolio Theory which is the following:
● Investors are risk averse. The only acceptable risk is that which is adequately compensated by an expected return. Risk and investment return are related and an increase in risk requires an increased expected return.
● Markets are efficient. The same market information is available to all investors at the same time. The market prices every security fairly based upon this equal availability of information.
● The design of the portfolio as a whole is more important than the selection of any particular security. The appropriate allocation of capital among asset classes will have far more influence on long-term portfolio performance than the selection of individual securities. Investing for the long-term (preferably longer than ten years) becomes critical to investment success because it allows the long-term characteristics of the asset classes to surface.
● Increasing diversification of the portfolio with lower correlated asset class positions can decrease portfolio risk. Correlation is the statistical term for the extent to which two asset classes move in tandem or opposition to one another.
