Lindbrook Capital’s investment philosophy is to capitalize on inefficient markets and control associated risks through heightened knowledge and understanding. The firm’s extensive focus on down-side risk guides our process in:
- Understanding what underlying economic, social and political factors are driving returns;
- Communicating that understanding to its clients;
- Recommending investments accordingly.
Our painstaking approach to information processing affords the firm an edge when it comes to recommending where to invest clients’ capital. From continuous meetings with investment managers, to state of the art software analytic systems, to preeminent custodial services, our focused approach to knowledge gathering and processing allows us to form conclusions independent of the herd mentality that is so prevalent in the investment community.
At Lindbrook Capital, we listen, evaluate, educate and advise. Our approach is comprehensive and tailored to our clients’ goals and priorities. We seek to understand each client’s specific goals before designing a personal investment strategy that is firmly grounded in research, supported by the combined talents of our senior investment team, and, most importantly, reflective of the personal goals and objectives of each client along with our fiduciary standards.
Client meetings offer an opportunity to review investment results, discuss non-financial issues and consider life events that could have an impact on a client’s overall financial priorities.
As a rule, we believe its more important to focus on not losing money as opposed to under-performing a benchmark. We always look for an asymmetric risk-return trade-off – “buy low, sell high”

In addition to each client being afforded secured and encrypted 24/7 access to its accounts, the firm tailors its communication reporting to meet the objectives of each client.

Each report not only details such quantitative metrics as asset allocation, manager allocation, total plan return, and manager returns versus benchmarks, but also provides a personalized narrative summary and market commentary.
Our comprehensive quantitative and qualitative approach to reporting is essential to assuring that our clients’ have a clear understanding of their portfolio at all times and the ability to measure both, portfolio performance and Lindbrook Capital’s performance.
