Jay’s Investment Philosophy

Before developing an investment strategy, Jay believes people should take time to understand their unique situation and goals and know exactly where they are investing. Jay looks to screen out companies adding to the moral decay or our society and screen in companies making a positive difference in our culture. 

He is an avid believer in asset allocation (the process of dividing investment portfolios into different investment categories).

He believes in using a scientific process that maximizes expected return for a specific level of risk. But success doesn’t stop there. Once a strategy is established, careful monitoring is important to measure progress. Periodic adjustments are critical to ensure that strategies stay on track.
