Investments designed to build your net worth

We love robust growth as much as the next advisor, but never at the sacrifice of your long-term goals or your peace of mind. So Marshall offers carefully crafted investment strategy to build your secure net worth over time.

Because you’re in it for the long haul

Long-term, lower-risk and diversified

Marshall structures client portfolios according to Modern Portfolio Theory, which won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1990. A few of the pillars of this approach include:

• Clients are loss-averse. Risk is only acceptable to the degree that it provides potential for adequate compensation.

• Markets are generally efficient. It is virtually impossible to time short-term market changes. So we don’t attempt to time the market. The approach we encourage with clients is patient, long-term investing.

• The portfolio as a whole is more important than any individual security. Allocating capital among asset classes appropriately will have much greater effect on the total portfolio than the selection of individual securities.

• Diversification reduces risk. It’s important to be invested in asset classes that are either not related to each other, or in opposition, so that as one goes down, the other goes up.

• Global investment helps reduce risk since economies around the world are often less tightly correlated

Growth…with peace of mind

Our expert analysts investigate many funds and products before selecting ones for inclusion in our clients’ portfolios. We look for well-managed, transparent funds with superior track records in a diverse range of industries and countries, so that we can offer a balanced portfolio. Then we track the selected funds diligently so that you don’t have to. (Unless you want to. You always have 100 percent transparency and access). When there’s news or a decision to be made, we let you know.

The fine print

Investment management is charged as a percentage of your portfolio. The maximum is 1% and drops as the size of your portfolio increases. It is a fee to you, (we accept no commissions) and will be debited from your investment portfolio quarterly.

Portfolio value Annual Fee (percent)
Up to $250,000 1.00
$250,001-$500,000 .85
$500,001-$1,000,000 .65
Above $1,000,000 .50
