What we do

Investment philosophy

The Brinker Capital investment philosophy is guided by our core principles.

Experienced investment management

In the complex world of the financial markets, having an experienced guide can lead to better long-term outcomes. We’ve spent the last 30 years embracing ideas that shape and refine our commitment to investment excellence. Innovation and early adoption of concepts, ideas, and solutions are the threads that run throughout our 30-year history.

Core principles

Wealth cannot be created unless capital is invested -
and remains invested.

In order to help investors create wealth, we adhere to a multi-asset class investment philosophy, utilizing a mix of growth, stable, and diversifying assets within our portfolios.

We believe that meaningful portfolio diversification, over time, helps keep investors invested and ultimately, deliver more consistent risk adjusted returns.



Brinker Capital’s multi-asset class investment philosophy


Multi-asset class investing with a blend of growth, stable,
and diversifying assets.

Domestic and international equity assets are utilized for growth, providing long-term capital appreciation with a higher level of volatility.

Fixed income assets provide stability with a lower volatility profile and an income stream.

Global credit, absolute return, and real assets provide a differentiated source of return with a varied volatility profile.

Our portfolios are dynamic in nature – strategic with active oversight.

Focus on outcomes

Portfolios are purposefully constructed to meet client objectives.

Assets are categorized for portfolio construction based on the outcome we expect them to deliver.  Portfolios are constructed with a mix of growth, stable, and diversifying assets to better enable investors to focus on outcomes.

It is our belief that diversified and actively managed portfolios can deliver more consistent risk-adjusted returns, keeping investors invested.

Assets are utilized for the outcome they provide.
