Investments & Services
This investment approach is designed to afford clients the opportunity to participate in a variety of market segments over a market cycle, because over time various segments are rewarded.
Mutual funds make it easy to diversify. Most funds require only moderate minimum investments, from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, enabling investors to construct a diversified portfolio much more cheaply than they could on their own.
Fixed Income Investing
It is our belief that there is not a significant reward to warrant the risk of investing in low quality or longer-term bonds.
We work for you the client. We are not tied to pre-packaged products or proprietary mutual funds, so each individual portfolio is tailored specifically to the clients investment goals. In some cases, individual stocks and bonds may be appropriate. Recommendations will be made.
Safekeeping client assets
There are two critical components of any investment management relationship. The first as discussed earlier, involves the ongoing strategies implemented in the active management of your portfolio. The second component involves the custody and safekeeping of your portfolio.
Biltmore Investment Management does not hold custody of client’s portfolios. For this service Biltmore has created an alliance with the premier custodian in the country, the Charles Schwab Corporation. Schwab’s cutting edge technology, combined with the fact it is one of the largest custodians in the country, makes it an ideal fit for Biltmore.
In short, Schwab acts as Biltmore’s back office. Clients of Biltmore have no direct contact with Schwab. However, Schwab does perform some very important functions.
