Our Philosophy

At Watson Investments, we build custom portfolios for each client based on our evidence-based investment philosophy. Our philosophy encompasses a global investment approach, mitigating risk, enhancing diversification, and a conservative methodical approach. This allows for wealth growth and preservation. Each client’s portfolio is unique to the client and begins with strategic asset allocation and the right combination of equity, fixed income and for some, alternative investments. Then we asset locate, which means that each client’s accounts will look different, allowing us to invest within the best account type and mitigate taxes. Our team also takes into account current positions held that might be needed or preferred to continue to own. Portfolios are all customized for what’s best for the client.
