Our methodology and investment philosophy
We utilize a highly disciplined, fundamentally based and risk aware approach in managing portfolios for our clients.
The cost of trying to time the market
Trying to time the market or reacting to the latest trends or news in making changes to your portfolio, while tempting, involves getting two nearly impossible decisions correct: when to sell and when to buy.
An important benefit of working with Herring Bank is the opportunity to establish a long-term investment strategy that remains consistent with your goals and doesn’t involve trying to time the market.

Risk vs. return asset allocation model
As an investor, you can’t completely eliminate risk, but you can manage it through the diversification of the investments you hold. Investment returns tend to be higher as the level of risk goes up.
At Herring Bank, your portfolio of investments will be constructed in a manner that is consistent with your financial objectives and your tolerance for risk.
