Investment Recommendation or Advice
We at Cypress Asset Management, Inc. provide investment advisory services only to individuals who become Cypress Asset Management, Inc. clients pursuant to a written investment advisory agreement. Articles, commentaries, investment plans and other content provided by us on or through the Website are for illustrative or educational purposes only and do not constitute investment, legal or tax advice, or an offer to buy, sell or hold any security.
Cypress Asset Management, Inc. services are based on long-term investment strategies incorporating the principles of Modern Portfolio Theory. Our investment approach is firmly rooted in the belief that markets are “efficient” over periods of time and that investors’ long-term returns are determined principally by asset allocation decisions, rather than market timing or stock picking. We recommend diversified portfolios, principally through the use of passively managed, asset-class mutual funds. We select or recommend to clients portfolios of securities, principally broadly-traded open end mutual funds or conservative fixed income securities to implement this investment strategy.
Our investment advice seeks to limit risk through broad diversification among asset classes and, as appropriate for particular clients, the direct investment in conservative fixed income securities to represent the fixed income asset class. Our investment philosophy is designed for investors who desire a buy and hold strategy. Frequent trading of securities increases brokerage and other transaction costs that Cypress Asset Management, Inc.’s strategy seeks to minimize. Investing entails risk including the possible loss of principal and there is no assurance that the investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Please read the Cypress Asset Management, Inc. Form ADV Part 2 (Brochure) carefully prior to becoming a client.
