  • Overcoming Loss Aversion
    • Know the Enemy
    • We fear the pain of a loss more than we feel attracted to possible gain, generally causing us to overreact and make impulsive decisions
    • Solution
    • Understand that loss aversion is a natural emotion
    • Define your goals and objectives and a long-term strategy to help reach them
    • Implement a rules-based approach to the “buy low, sell high” axiom that can keep you on track
  • The HawsGoodwin Group Strategy
    • Step 1: Diversify Across Asset Classes
    • Step 2: Diversify Within Asset Classes
    • Step 3: Globalize the Portfolio
    • Step 4: Rebalance
    • Step 5: Maximize After-Tax Returns
  • Step 1: Diversify Across Asset Classes We Believe Asset Allocation is More Important Than Security Selection
    • Asset Allocation is the mix between cash, bonds, stocks, and alternative investments of your investment portfolio.
    • We believe it is the primary factor determining portfolio performance and volatility; it also keeps you invested during tougher markets which can potentially increases your returns over time.
    (Source: Brinson, Singer, Beebouwer/1990-Financial Analysis Journal May/June 1991) Asset allocation can not eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns.

  • Diversifying with International Stocks Has the Potential to Help Lower Risk 1970−2006 % in International Stocks Source: MSCI, Standard & Poor’s and AllianceBernstein Volatility (%) Investing in foreign securities presents certain risks not associated with domestic investments such as currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, and different accounting standards. This may result in greater share price volatility. Lower Volatility
  • Step 4: Rebalance Buy Underperform Strategic target Outperform Sell As an asset class/style outperforms, trim investment As an asset class/style underperforms, add to investment Our Rebalancing Discipline Helps to Buy Low, Sell High Upper trigger Lower trigger
  • Step 5: Maximize After-Tax Returns
    • Basic
    • Consider owning Municipal Bonds, generally not taxable
    • Reconsider holding REITs, the income is generally tax inefficient
    • Keep turnover low
    • Avoid short-term gains
    • Harvest losses to offset gains on stocks and bonds
    • Advanced
    • Track holdings by tax lot
    • Sell individual tax lots with the least tax cost
    • Avoid wash sales
