Avista’s investment models utilize a “core and satellite” approach to generate risk-adjusted returns in accordance with our clients’ long-term financial goals. Portfolios are structured to capture market beta through low-cost indexing strategies while seeking excess market returns through individual stock selection and various alternative investments. Portfolio risk can be minimized and controlled through option hedging strategies which can provide more consistent long-term returns and lower overall portfolio volatility.

It’s not what you make, but what you keep, so working with exceptional accounting professionals is essential in minimizing the tax implications of financial and investment decisions. Tax planning is not an annual event – it’s an ongoing conversation throughout the year and requires constant collaboration between our clients and their accounting professionals. Avista quarterbacks this relationship to ensure our clients’ financial plans stays on course and minimizes the tax bite on their long-term wealth goals.
