Who We Are
An approachable team with a unique skill set and expertise in public and private markets, investment counselling and disciplined investment processes.
After a calm summer for global markets, we were reminded again in September that stock markets don’t always go up. Despite a volatile final month to the quarter, client accounts finished up 0.9% in Q3-21 and are up 13.8% YTD based on our Balanced Composite.
It was a strong Q2 for the Aventine strategies as equity markets continued to benefit from both accelerating growth and inflation as we marked the anniversary of the economic low point of the pandemic.
