Services

Atlas helps individual and institutional clients meet their financial goals through thoughtful planning and investing strategies.

Any sound individual financial strategy requires an in-depth understanding of the individual’s specific situation. Together, we create your unique Investment Policy Statement after a full understanding of your investment objectives, risk tolerances, aggregate wealth and income, as well as current risks to your goals.

Atlas Capital Advisors provides full portfolio solutions across asset classes, as well as stand-alone equity, fixed income and balanced strategies. Investment choices are systematic and based upon findings in academic and proprietary research. We excel in the most important portfolio input: asset allocation. We are a direct investor in securities, cutting out the middleman and lowering your fee burden.

Risk to achieving your financial objectives can take many forms and may not be limited to the investments managed through Atlas Capital Advisors. We have extensive experience managing risk for individuals and institutions. We offer tax-efficient solutions to reduce market, asset/liability, interest rate and currency risks.

Many of Atlas Capital Advisors’ individual clients have a substantial portion of their net worth in one or more concentrated positions. Examples of these exposures include stock and options held by corporate executives, legacy single equity positions with a low cost basis and positions in private investment partnerships. Atlas is proficient at helping clients develop a tax and risk aware plan for the concentrated position while devising a strategy for the remainder of the investment portfolio which best complements the concentrated position.

Atlas Capital Advisors offers OCIO services whereby we manage the investment program for tax-exempt foundations and endowments, drawing on our years of experience in CIO roles at large and sophisticated institutional plan sponsors.

Investment Strategies

01

ATLAS RISK

Atlas Risk is the flagship global equity strategy utilized since the inception of the firm. The objective of Atlas Risk is to outperform the global equity index through favorable selection of countries, sectors and individual stocks using a systematic quantitative multi-factor model.

02

ATLAS ESG

With Atlas ESG, clients are able to adjust investment choices to align with their values. Atlas ESG combines the multi-factor investment approach of Atlas Risk with client-defined Environmental, Social and/or Governance criteria.

03

ATLAS BALANCED FUND

The aim of the Atlas Global Balanced Strategy is to outperform strategies which are balanced approximately 60% in global equities and 40% in fixed income. The 60/40 allocation is prevalent among institutional and individual investors. Sixty percent of the allocation of the strategy will be the Atlas Global Defensive Equity Strategy. The remaining forty percent of the strategy will be yield-oriented asset classes which have lower investment risk than equities.

04

ATLAS DEFENSIVE GLOBAL EQUITY

The Atlas Global Defensive Equity Strategy aims to outperform the global equity index through favorable selection of countries and sectors and loss avoidance during severe bear markets. Atlas uses a proprietary framework to evaluate expected returns, market sentiment, and risk for the single country and U.S. sector indices which together comprise the global equity market. This is combined with an assessment of whether the risk of severe loss is elevated.

05

ATLAS NON-PROFIT

The Atlas Non-Profit strategy is designed to generate returns for tax-exempt investors which are competitive to those of the large endowments and foundations.  The strategy puts the emphasis where it belongs – on asset allocation. In addition the Atlas implementation is liquid, transparent, and low cost.
