Investment Advice and Consultation from Experienced Financial Planners 

The philosophy behind the “Best of Breed” is to define, search and select the best of breed in each asset class and category necessary for your investment portfolio. Summit considers over 4000 no-load and no transaction fee funds on a quarterly basis to develop our roster of candidates. We then layer additional, proprietary processes of analysis to sift through the good to get the great.

Our selection and modeling processes include fundamental analysis such as Fund Manager Tenure, Fund Family’s Investment Philosophy, Asset Class, Historical Returns and Style Drift. Our technical analysis layers in measurements for Alpha, Beta, Relative Strength, Statistical Algorithms and a pro-active trend analysis against short term, mid-term and long terms market indicators to select, monitor and maintain optimal levels of risk vs. return creation for client accounts.

Summit has successfully merged their private client systems and processes to achieve the maximum level of efficient Risk vs. Return potential for each portfolio we construct. This gives our clients the best ingredients available to them within their plans and a targeted approach to the markets.
