Risk Management Investment Philosophy

Institutional Investing

Feinberg Stein Risk Management

We Control the Risk and Do Not Let the Markets Control Us

We do not force an allocation. If there is an opportunity in fixed income and rates are high, we focus on bonds. If liquidity is ample, we position ourselves to sectors, industries, and companies likely to benefit in a growth cycle.

We Avoid a Permanent Impairment of Capital

Our primary goal is to protect your assets. By evaluating, managing, and controlling our risk and not letting markets control us while minimizing risk and maximizing returns by taking advantage of the market’s opportunities, we nimbly position ourselves to help protect and grow your assets.

Risk Management Principles

Our risk management investment philosophy is built on three principles:

We believe liquidity measures in various systems on both macro and micro levels are cruxes for economic fruition or demise. Understanding and watching for tightening and loosening monetary policy guides our risk policy and allows us to invest prudently in the economic environment.

Utilizing our research, knowledge, and experience, we assess risks in the systems and avoid major impairment of principal while finding opportunities for growth.

Identifying trends allows us to quantify approaching risk. Shifting quickly to a risk-off in higher risk premia environments or to a risk-on approach when the economy has enough fuel (liquidity) to drive valuations of assets upward.

A relationship with Feinberg Stein begins with a conversation.
