Piedmont RIA’s Investment Philosophy

Piedmont Investment Advisors, LLC has developed a unique, robust philosophy that guides its investment strategies for the full benefit of its clients. In the concept of the two hemispheres, Piedmont addresses both the need for a dependable income stream from a source of readily accessible liquidity as well as opportunities for wealth creation.

Most clients are people just like us, entrepreneurs, business owners and principals/executives of companies. They value professional services and investment advice. They understand or have an appreciation of the process to allocate capital among risk and safe assets. They understand risk and are familiar with making decisions to deploy capital. They also understand the importance diversifying capital in such a way that their investment objectives, both short and long term, can be achieved. So, they engage Piedmont RIA, an innovative financial advisor, to help them explore the range of investment opportunities from mutual funds to venture capital and everywhere in between.

Piedmont RIA aspires to invest our clients’ capital in a similar fashion. In doing so, we look at our clients’ investment portfolio in terms of a sphere. In one half of the sphere, our goal is to provide liquidity by developing a low volatility stock and bond portfolio that invests in the public financial markets. In the other hemisphere, we strive to allocate capital across an array of privately negotiated and structured real estate and venture capital investments, which will provide true wealth-building opportunities. At the core of both hemispheres is a mandate to preserve the wealth already created.
