  • Our ability to selectively invest in both equity & equity-related securities including convertibles/structured notes, allows us to enhance diversification through exposure to a broader investment universe of non-traditional equity income sectors and/or industries

    Please remember that there are inherent risks involved with investing in the markets, and your investments may be worth more or less than your initial investment upon redemption. There is no guarantee that the investment managers’ objectives will be achieved. Professional money management is not suitable for all investors.

    Additional considerations:
    This web site is not intended as an offer or solicitation with respect to the purchase or sale of any security or other financial instrument or any investment management services.The does not constitute investment advice and should not be used as the basis for any investment decision. There is no assurance that the strategy objectives as discussed will be met. Further, there is no assurance that any strategies, methods, sectors, or any investment programs herein were or will prove to be profitable, or that any investment recommendations or decisions we make in the future will be profitable for any investor or client.These materials do not purport to provide any legal, tax or accounting advice.

    The risks associated with investing include but are not limited to: derivative securities, which may carry market, credit, and liquidity risks; short sales, which involve costs and the risk of potentially unlimited losses; leveraging, which may magnify losses; high yield (“junk”) bonds, which are subject to greater market risks; small/mid cap stocks which may be subject to more erratic market movements than large cap stocks; foreign securities, which are subject to currency fluctuation and political uncertainty; real estate, which poses certain risks related to overall and specific economic conditions as well as risks related to individual property, credit and interest-rate fluctuations; and mortgage-backed securities, which are subject to prepayment and extension risks.

    Thematic and concentrated portfolios may not be suitable for all investors. Such portfolios are non-diversified, so a loss resulting from a particular security will have greater impact on the portfolio’s return. Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise.

    Your investment objectives, risk tolerance, and liquidity needs must be reviewed before suitable programs can be recommended. Asset allocation and diversification strategies do not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets. Investors should consult with their attorney, accountant, and/or tax professional for advice concerning their particular situation.
