How We Invest
Driving performance through superior portfolio design.
We believe it is possible to design portfolios to reduce downside risk without sacrificing long-term returns.
Risk Is Detrimental To Your Wealth
The sophisticated approach to risk management that we provide to our clients has the potential to generate higher long-term returns along with lower potential losses than more conventional portfolios.
Low risk portfolios outperform over time by losing less along the way…it is that simple.
The asset class allocation to stocks, bonds, commodities and real estate is traditionally determined by evaluating historical risk and returns. The asset classes with the highest historical returns get the largest weightings in the portfolio. This technique creates portfolios that are highly dependent on the performance of stocks. When stocks are not performing well conventional portfolios usually experience significant losses.
We determine asset class allocations for portfolios by evaluating how different investment strategies perform during varying financial market environments. We then assign many investment strategies to the portfolio making sure to include at least one strategy that performs well in each of the possible market environments that could be encountered. The final strategy allocation in the portfolio is then calculated based on each strategy’s risk and not historical returns so that each strategy contributes more equally to the total risk of the portfolio.
A risk-based asset allocation approach provides another unique dimension of diversification to a portfolio called economic diversification. Economic diversification is critical in reducing the size of potential investment losses.
We do not believe there is any evidence that discretionary security picking as an investment strategy adds value to a diversified portfolio. We use our expertise in markets to design comprehensive mathematical models for making evidence-based, systematic and repeatable investment decisions.
We design investing strategies with a rigid framework of trading rules that can be quantified to enforce consistent investment decision making that always seeks the highest probability of a successful outcome. Our investing expertise is therefore not used to do the impossible of predicting the direction of markets, but instead to design trading rules that are repeatable and consistently applied over long periods of time.

How we are different
Innovation and Proprietary Technology
3Summit was founded to provide the clients we serve with an alternative to outdated, conventional investment portfolios. The traditional investment advisory business model and investment capabilities cannot offer investors modern, efficient portfolios that deliver greater wealth accumulation with much lower levels of risk. 3Summit Investment Management was built over more than a decade of investment research and systems development to solve the limitations common within the investment industry. Investment research and technological innovation is at the core of our culture and make the high quality investment solutions we offer possible.
Why trust us
You Deserve An Investment Manager Who Earns Your Trust
3Summit was founded on the simple belief that trust cannot be earned through talking points or service features. We believe trust can only be earned by structuring an investment management firm to only have one incentive, to act exclusively in your best interest. We structured 3Summit to be accountable to our clients and to make that commitment easily verifiable.
In this quarter’s Investing Insight, I discuss why I believe Mutual Funds are bad investments in general. Mutual funds are the sacred cow of the largest investment firms, believe me, I do not make any friends among investing peers when talking about this topic. However, I have always believed that investment decisions should not be driven by the status quo within the industry, but that any investment approach should be able to stand up to the rigors of evidence-based analysis.
Fair warning, I am confident the topic I will cover today will blow your mind and hopefully cause you to question much of what you have learned about investing. I am being perfectly serious. What I am about to show you, flips the common investing wisdom upside-down. The concepts I lay out in this Investing Insight are at the foundation of my investing philosophy and the driving force behind 3Summit’s innovations in portfolio design and management. I hope the investing secrets I am going to share with you today inspire and inform your investing process as much as they have mine.
