Tactical Council

Given the ever changing business landscape, it is critical to remain true to our core mission to provide truly objective advice.

Our Tactical Council is comprised of an exceptional group of professionals that have risen to the top within their respective industries and offer constructive guidance to our management team as we seek to maintain and ultimately enhance your client experience.

From the dedicated, data driven team at Fieldstone Research® who perform due diligence on each investment opportunity we pursue to our advisory committee who help us to continuously improve our business processes, we have surrounded ourselves with excellence.

Fieldstone Research

At Fieldstone Research®, we incorporate strategic asset allocation and direction through a research collaborative comprised of industry leaders. Combining the vast intellectual capital of this collaborative group with our internal quantitative, data-driven, risk-conscious approach to investing, we are able to fully customize our three-dimensional investment philosophy, which enables us to comply with your client-specific investment policies and constraints. Our three-dimensional investment philosophy is designed to preserve your investment assets while carefully aligning risk/reward characteristics with individually stated risk preference. The primary objective of our research is to avoid having to time the sharp swings of the markets while participating in the majority of market advances and protecting portfolio holdings during a declining market. Our investment committee, meets weekly to discuss ongoing portfolio construction and to contemplate proactive, tactical portfolio modifications based on current and projected market conditions.

Fieldstone Research® is independent from Fieldstone Financial.
