Bernardi Securities and Bernardi Asset Management assist in overseeing more than $1.40 billion in separate account portfolios. Bernardi Asset Management advises on over $170 million.
Portfolios are composed of individual bonds and traditionally structured as a laddered portfolio. The ownership of individual bonds enables control and customization, both vital components of any individual’s asset allocation. The ladder structure enables constant and consistent cash flows and reduces the need to speculate on rate timing.
We also offer Total Return and Goal-Based Strategies. Total Return portfolios are managed to mitigate the potential for loss of principal and maximizing after-tax income, while aiming to outperform the designated benchmark. Goal-Based portfolios are utilized for achieving specific lifestyle, cash-flow, or investment outlook targets. Please find our strategies listed below:
