Products and Services Offered

While our firm offers a comprehensive suite of financial products and services detailed below, our focus is on employing active management strategies to pursue various goals.


In the late 1990’s Mr. Fox-Smith developed his first Sector Rotation strategies and has been managing client assets with this approach for over 20 years. We have been through some fairly significant up and down markets in that time, which has tested his models thoroughly. 

Over the years, and in response to the needs of many of his aging clients, he began to develop other active investment strategies to work alongside the Sector Rotation concept. Those strategies include Trend Timing, which is primarily a risk abatement strategy, Alternative strategies, and several others. While they all have different goals, objectives, and risks, all of his custom designed strategies focus on a core in a client’s account that is invested for the long term with a sleeve that is managed actively in order to be opportunistic and to protect a client’s assets from the market.

All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.  There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful.
