Summary - Investment Committee Quarterly Meeting - February 26, 2021
Quarterly meetings follow a standardized agenda to evaluate portfolio construction and analyze current economic themes. During our most recent Investment Committee meeting, held Friday, February 26,2021:
Met with two Vanguard analysts. From their perspective, they anticipate small companies outpacing large, value outpacing growth, international outpacing domestic stock. At the next Investment Committee meeting we will consider slightly increasing small cap and international exposure.
Interest rates. We are not concerned about a rapid rise this year, but it’s something we are keeping our eye on for the future.
Because of regulation we are unable to invest in cryptocurrency (i.e. Bitcoin). We discussed the trend, the risks, and ways that we could potentially invest in the underlying software (Blockchain) that makes crypto transactions possible.
Fund Review. We review our funds at every meeting. Some things we consider are internal expenses, upside/downside capture, fund manager tenure, historical performance, standard deviation and forwardlooking projections. Based on these factors, we will be making some minor adjustments to a few
portfolios. Those affected will receive a trade confirmation and it will be reflected on your monthly statements.
