- "The LionShare program is a unique opportunity for the Portfolio Managers to directly interact not only with the Advisors attending but with each other as well."
Larry Taunt, CFP®, ChFC®, CLU®, CASL®
- "The LionShare program offers a great opportunity to build a stronger team. The portfolio managers and the Regal advisors have a forum to work together to make each other better."
- "My favorite aspect of being a Boutique Money Manager for Regal is the opportunity to engage directly with the Advisors, whether it’s a casual conversation about the stock market or assisting in the development of an investment case for a prospective client with complex challenges."
Tyler Hardt, CFA®
Durand strategies adhere to the investment philosophy called the “small p” and the “BIG P”.
- The “small p” stands for participate. We want to participate when the market is doing well.
- The “BIG P” stands for PROTECT. We focus everyday on PROTECTING investors’ assets and mitigating risk.
In our view, it is much more important to manage our strategies with an eye on capital preservation and risk mitigation than it is to focus on swinging for the fences. We feel that if we can minimize the draw-downs then we also minimize the need to be overly aggressive. Even if we end up being average in the good years, but are able to mitigate the losses in the bad, over full market cycles our investors will be very well served.
At L&S Advisors, we seek to provide expert investment guidance and exceptional service to both retail and institutional investors. We offer clients a different approach to investing—one that puts risk management first.
Our innovative investment strategies are designed to balance opportunity and risk. From equity to fixed income strategies, we strive to provide the choices investors need to meet their financial goals.
High Yield Strategy Philosophy:
Most investors like to think about the traditional style box when it comes to investing. For fixed income investors this means analyzing interest-rate sensitivity (duration) on one axis and credit quality on the other. We believe that through rigorous, bottom-up, research we can expand our opportunity set beyond our benchmark which in turn enhances our ability to exploit market inefficiencies. By focusing on companies who are improving their balance sheet we look to provide significant alpha while limiting risk over a full market cycle (five years).
The North Star Process — Micro to Macro Investing
While our focus is on overlooked small and micro-cap companies, the North Star Mutual Funds actively invest in undervalued companies of all sizes. When considering an investment, we look for opportunities that have the following three characteristics:
- Statistically Undervalued
- Simple Businesses
- Solid, Improving Financials
