In assessing risk, we ask ourselves to consider ‘the reasoned probability’ of loss in value.

At HSMP, we do not subscribe to the “Modern Portfolio” view that volatility equals risk.  Rather, we view risk in largely the same fashion that we view reward- as a function of the underlying business, earnings, and valuation.  Our investment approach and valuation discipline have allowed us to capture much of the upside during months in which the market registered positive performance and less of the downside during months in which the market registered negative performance. Preservation of capital through more challenging times coupled with the power of compounding has facilitated long-term outperformance.
