At Summit Private Wealth, we realize that to achieve successful results, a differentiated approach is necessary. Our disciplined house style is focused on delivering superior risk-adjusted returns.
As such, our investments typically do not resemble those of the herd. We tend to have fewer holdings, we are index agnostic and we focus on the highest quality. Our due diligence is an important part of our process, and it is important to invest in companies that have solid management, strong balance sheets, strong free cash flow, low debt, and that allocate capital wisely.
Our experienced and proven house style and co-investing with select other portfolio managers allows us to help our clients create wealth and successfully navigate all the various market weather conditions. We are disciples of The 5 Laws of Wealth Creation:
- Set meaningful goals, and create a sound action plan.
- Use other people’s expertise and intelligence.
- Pay yourself first and use other people’s money prudently.
- Own a few high quality businesses that you intimately understand.
- Hold those few quality businesses for the long run.
Summit Private Wealth is committed to putting our clients’ interest first and finding investment solutions that we buy into ourselves. By investing along-side our clients, we fully embrace our philosophy and provide clear objective solutions we truly believe in.
We do not care about being boring in our approach, we simply care about making money. This sounds simple enough, but it is strangely difficult to implement due to human nature. Here are some of the tools we use to construct portfolios, grow assets, and protect capital.
- Discretionary Portfolio Management
- Managed Investments and Private Pools
- Stocks, Bonds
- Guaranteed Investments*
