Evolve takes the position that no one approach is suitable for all clients. Our investment philosophy is based on our conviction that a client is most likely to achieve investment objectives with a customized plan that accounts for each unique aspect of the client's situation.
Depending on the client's objectives and risk tolerance, our discretionary portfolio management team can provide active management expertise.
Our investment philosophy - "growth at a reasonable price” - uses a bottom-up investment approach and takes a long-term view over four to six years. We identify as investment prospects companies that have the following characteristics: strong full-cycle profitability, healthy financial positions, strong business models with good visibility and management teams that can deploy capital at above-average rates and that can grow their businesses on a per-share basis. We also take into consideration the risk characteristics of each business and industry. Portfolio decisions are based on both macro-level and security-level research and analysis.

Although an investment policy is always about investing and investments, it is also about governance and mission. A strong investment policy statement is the foundation of planning because it provides an outline of continuity and vision and because it defines the roles and responsibilities of all parties involved.
