Career History
Managing Partner
2001 - Current

Avalon Advisors employs a fundamental, long-term approach in evaluating securities, seeks a return reflective of the underlying asset class for each account, and (where possible) aims to maintain lower volatility. The firm will raise cash reserves during periods of unusual market risk, but generally seeks to maintain a fully invested posture over a typical market cycle. Securities selected are generally expected to be held to be held for long-term capital gains, with the goal of providing higher after-tax returns. Avalon may suggest that clients invest in private funds some of which are managed by Avalon. They may also utilize hedging, options or derivatives and leverage to achieve investment objectives and may, for temporary defensive purposes, hold a significant portion of an account's assets in cash or cash equivalents should circumstances warrant.

Wallace Capital Management's (WCM) investment approach is to invest in a security only when they believe there is a significant dislocation between the value of a company and thevalue indicated by its stock price. All investment decisions are made within the context oftheir perspective of the macroeconomic environment and the industry-specific environment at the time of the investment. WCM primarily invests in US equities (and some non-US equities) with no restrictions or bias regarding market capitalization. In addition to publiclytraded equities, WCM is also authorized to own fixed income securities, mutual funds, cash (or cash equivalents) and other securities.

TRS’ Internal Investment Committee (IIC) approves investments in private equity, real estates, hedge funds and external managers. The firm’s investment performance is calculated using a daily time weighted rate of return. Investment decisions are based on asset allocation, which is determined after consideration of expected returns for asset classes with the context of risk tolerance for the fund. TRS uses both passive and active investing styles. Their approach tracks the performance of key benchmarks and provides the opportunity to add value through active portfolios. TRS' style is a disciplined, balanced approach with a strong quantitative foundation that focuses on long-term returns and objectives rather than on short-term market movements. The process includes frequent updating of statistical risk and return models constructed by TRS' investment staff.
