Tailored Portfolio Construction
Each Linden Thomas & Company client portfolio is tailored specifically to their growth, income, and risk needs; all through individual securities. Unlike investment firms where advisors charge a fee for advice and then simply invest in products that are pooled with other investors, the Linden Thomas & Company discipline builds portfolios directly.
This discipline provides each of our clients with the ability to maximize income through individual bonds, along with maximizing growth through individual stocks. This is accomplished through our Earnings-Focused Institutional Index disciplines and allocating between sectors of the markets tailored specifically to their needs. Our Earnings-Focused Equities discipline, coupled with our Yield-Focused Fixed Income, offers clients both control and full transparency of individual holdings. Unlike pooled investment products like ETFs, mutual funds, or annuities, our tailored portfolios give investors the control to gift individual securities, as well as take advantage of tax-loss harvesting. Because the assets are managed directly, our portfolios eliminate the cost of high advisor fees and the hidden fees in mutual funds, along with the pricing disadvantages of pooled funds.
