“The essence of investment management is the management of risks, not the management of returns.”
– Benjamin Graham

We realize that mutual trust is key for having your goals achieved and we are keen on fostering such trust to the greatest extent, by building a long-term successful relationship.
We are neutral and independent in every action we take for you. Harbour has no internal products to sell you and does not surreptitiously accept retrocessions; our clients benefit from independent access to fund managers and an extensive range of investment products.
How we do it
We give you an edge with quant tools that track trends, themes and other events that impact country, sector, asset class allocations. Research shows that most alpha generated by active fund managers is attributed to allocation rather than selection decisions. Harbour does macro really well, as evidenced by our calls since we first started sharing our research with the public.
You will benefit from a more hands-on approach to allocation with a quicker response time to the continuously changing landscape. Because we have low commissions, we are able to take advantage of opportunities to underweight or overweight certain factors in any discretionary portfolio with an active tilt.
Portfolios with a passive tilt benefit from our risk-management approach to portfolio allocation. Portfolios are periodically rebalanced to stay within quantitatively derived risk tolerance levels. Each of our clients will have a passive or active tilt, but all clients benefit from our risk-management approach to allocations because we take suitability seriously.
Aside from quantitative tools to measure risk tolerance, we utilize quantitative models to detect cycles and determine the factors that work in the current dominant cycle. We monitor global policymakers to determine monetary and fiscal impacts on geographic allocations. Yes, it matters when a country depends on external financing in dollars and the Fed is raising rates.
Quantitatively, it can be said that market prices reflect the aggregate knowledge of market participants; it can be said that the market-cap-weighted portfolio is what the markets deem as the most efficient portfolio. So one only needs to know the effects of high-impact events on the direction of specific allocations to beat the market. This is how we determine our overweight and underweight positions. We continuously brainstorm “themes” and “potential events” and track them over time. This is what we do best.
