Reasoning Behind What We Do

SCM seeks a balance of art and science.  While the art of investing relies on creativity and judgment, the process itself is much more ordered than may be the case in the fine arts. Successful investing results from careful analysis and hard work; there is no simple solution.

Our service comes with the wisdom of many years spent in academics and hands-on experience. We provide quality service using the highest standards. We make sure your interests are placed before our own. Our fee-only arrangement is a perfect alignment of goals, we only succeed when you succeed.

SCM strongly feels markets and humans are not perfect and look for ways to gain.  Markets tend to overreact in the short-term and can be exploited. However, in the long-term, the markets get it right and fundamentals win out.


 What’s Likely to Happen on Wall Street

We form an outlook of the future to make decisions in the present. Our outlook is put together through direct observation, research and forecast surveys. This picture is presented in our blogs and reports.



Investing Explained

An investment is the acquisition of an asset such as a stock or bond where the reasons for parting with your money are more compelling than the alternatives. The sections below help simplify concepts used in investing. There are adapted from courses taught at UCLA by SCM’s principal, David Simpson, CFA.
