Investment Selection Process

Focused Wealth Management does not manage or sell proprietary investment products. Our custodial and trading relationships give us access to a variety of asset classes and investment products allowing us to follow a completely independent approach to the selection and monitoring of client portfolios.

This access demands a strict and deliberate process be adhered to in the investment product selection process. The Investment Product and Investment Manager Selection is conducted quarterly by the Focused Wealth Management. Investment Selection and Monitoring Committee, a team comprised of qualified and experienced investment professionals.

Recommended asset classes are placed in a formal Investment Product Selection document outlining all the statistical data utilized in the selection process. It is then distributed to Focused Wealth Management for their use in the selection and monitoring these assets for their clients.

The Committee is aware that the ongoing review and analysis of our client portfolios is just as important as the due diligence implemented during the manager selection process. Thus, the suitability of the investment products and investment managers will be monitored on a quarterly basis and it is at the Committeeís discretion to take corrective action by reallocating an asset class if they deem it appropriate.
