Finances are complicated - whether it be investments, taxes, retirement planning, estate planning, income planning, insurance, charitable bequests. At various times in your life many of these issues will intersect. We help you structure and integrate them into a streamlined plan that encompasses both a broad vision and detailed plan.

Our objective at Black Point, is to guide you through the financial choices in life. With over 30 years of experience in this field, we have a deep understanding of client needs and planning solutions.

We’re here to show you step by step, which strategies will be most beneficial to you. We believe in our well-researched, academic approach, so let us share our investment strategy with you.

Our investment philosophy is an academic factual approach rooted by Nobel Prize winning economic research. The process is previewed below and involves translating financial science into practical investment solutions. We build portfolios along the dimensions of expected returns in a cost -effective manner. To be considered a dimension of expected return, a premium must be:

  • Sensible
  • Persistent
  • Pervasive
  • Robust
  • Cost-effective
