Ackerman & Co. recommends that you understand the use of time as a diversification element to investment portfolios. The relative risk of specific asset classes due to the volatility of returns is reduced when longer investment time horizons are used. Because economic and financial cycles are an inherent risk when planing financial goals, long term investment horizons are appropriate to realize the highest returns.
For our clients with shorter time horizons we reduce risk by emphasizing assets with shorter maturities, higher quality, and greater liquidity.
As a client, you should involve yourself in the financial planning process; understanding and setting your own goals. Clear expectations are necessary in order to design a strategy for achieving success. Investment portfolios should be designed to maximize total returns with consideration given to efficiency and cash flow needs.
The profile of the your wealth management strategy is a function of several variables including your risk tolerance, your age, your previous financial advisory experience, your time horizons, and your goals.
The goal-based method of financial planning provides the most intuitive, realistic, and efficient method of identifying and quantifying the financial goals.
