Asset Management

For the last 20 years our management model appealed to investors in search of investment stability and consistent income. We seek to provide a diversification tool which will generate a more attractive risk-adjusted rate of return than traditional fixed-income alternatives. We specialize in residential mortgages with a deep knowledge of publicly traded mortgage related companies.

Investors benefit from our experience managing a public company. Procedures and controls reflect the policies of a public company along with having an independent board of directors, preference to use nationally recognized accounting firms as auditors, and use of major commercial banks for functions such as securities custodian.
