Our credentialed investment professionals have extensive experience designing, implementing, and monitoring investment programs.

How We Work With You
Step 1: Determine Objectives

We consult closely with you to:

  • Understand your investment goals, priorities, and time horizon;
  • Assess your tolerance for volatility;
  • Determine your liquidity needs;
  • Examine tax efficiency of your portfolio and tax implications of proposed transactions.

Step 2: Develop Investment Policy

We then create an Investment Policy Statement (IPS) that serves as the roadmap for portfolio design, implementation, and ongoing management. Your IPS includes:

  • Overall goals;
  • Management authority and responsibilities of HPM Partners;
  • Approved types of investments;
  • Portfolio constraints;
  • Performance benchmarks;
  • Reporting requirements.

Step 3: Design & Implement Portfolio Framework

Next, we establish your portfolio’s overall strategic asset allocation to such asset classes as equities, fixed income, real assets, and alternatives. We aim to enhance returns by seeking to ensure that you take advantage of the performance of different asset classes at different points in time, and control risk by minimizing the adverse effects of market volatility. We also determine other aspects of portfolio management:

  • The mix of active and passive solutions;
  • Manager selection;
  • Custody and trading;
  • Performance measurement and evaluation.

Step 4: Monitoring & Management

  • We monitor your investments on an ongoing basis and make adjustments as needed regarding:
  • Overall portfolio, specific investments, market conditions, and opportunities;
  • Managers’ performance and consistency;
  • Tactical allocations.

We consult with you about any changes in your financial circumstances, and will work with you to revise your IPS if warranted. We also provide periodic performance and holdings reports as well as commentaries on market conditions and the economic outlook. In addition, we can review and report on your total financial assets including those we don’t manage.
