Hummel Financial Group
We approach the implementation of our investing strategies very scientifically. We have a rigorous portfolio construction and re-balancing process and we follow a four-stage process in managing our clients' money:
Stage 1 - Financial Planning
In this phase we work with the client to formulate a long-term financial plan. We monitor the client's progress annually and make any necessary adjustments. This annual process includes identification of financial goals and objectives, retirement income projections, tax and estate planning.
Stage 2 - Portfolio Construction
Asset allocation drives portfolio performance, which makes the decision a very important one. To make this decision we follow a rigorous analysis of each clients' risk tolerance and growth objectives. This is outlined in the financial planning process.
Stage 3 - Security Selection and Market Research
We build each client portfolio using a diversified mix of index investments. We carefully select investments to create a portfolio that will stand up against the test of time. When analyzing index investments we look for quality providers that have a value/dividend growth tilt. Individual stock purchases are targeted based on favourable entry points, strong historic results, and defensive characteristics.
Stage 4 - Portfolio Management
We follow a disciplined re-balancing methodology for our portfolios. At regular time intervals we re-balance our portfolios, trimming overweight assets adn re-allocating to underweight assets. This provides a steady, un-emotional approach to "buying low" and "selling High".
