Investment Philosophy

Wisemann's mission is to deliver superior investment results with risk under control and to conduct our business with the highest integrity.

Capital Preservation

Our investment program is designed with one objective in mind – to maximize the portfolio performance for our clients while at the same time using the power of compounding to grow their wealth.

This respect for compounding leads us to have a strong emphasis on managing downside risk. Capital preservation is of utmost importance to us because the damaging power of "reverse compounding" can be extremely destructive to a portfolio. Most investors are familiar with the magic of compounding interest but they fail to realize that it works in reverse as well.

That is why we never chase the market and we never break our risk management rules no matter how "good" a trade may look. We play a defensive game and maintain a modest return target of 20-30% per annum.

Long-Term Systematic Trend Following

We are trend followers. We simply go with the flow and leave our egos at the door. If the market is going up, we are long. If the market is going down, we are short. What we think a market should or will do is irrelevant. We do what the market is doing.

We believe that "price" is the best indicator - as long as price data is available, all else is inconsequential. Media news, broker opinions, talking heads, and so on are simply not necessary to profit. All fundamental and technical buying and selling is reflected in one thing - price.

Our investment program is therefore 100% systematic and quantitative. There is no discretionary aspect to our strategy and trading signals are never over-ridden. This requires a high level of self-discipline and patience to follow precise rules based on price action alone.
