Grow Your Practice with HCM
If your practice strategy involves attracting and retaining sophisticated individual investors and institutions, consider HCM as one of your investment advisers. We believe that our track record and disciplined, common sense approach brings a fresh perspective and an interesting way to enhance larger portfolios. Smaller clients can participate in our approach through our Mutual Funds.
We believe that with HCM, you will be able to offer your clients:
- The comfort of investing in strong companies. Because we strive to select companies with a clear, sustainable competitive advantage, we seek to identify companies that our research shows are more likely to be “winners” in their industries over the long run.
- The ability to easily understand our investment process. While some investment advisers have extremely complex processes or operate in a “black box,” we find that our approach is straightforward and clear.
- The protection of a powerful approach to mitigating risk. Most portfolios rely on diversification to reduce risk. We attempt to control risk by investing in strong companies. For us, volatility represents opportunity: a great company with a depressed stock price is an excellent value. HCM seeks to provide an approach that complements the diversification approaches that many of our clients are already using.
The broadening of your portfolio strategy beyond the “conventional wisdom.” Some investment advisers “follow the crowd”; others are “contrarians” who follow the crowd in the opposite direction. Our analysis seeks to go beyond this bi-polar “conventional wisdom” to select those companies that we see as best for our clients over the long run – whether or not the firms are currently “popular.”
