DALLAS, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lear Investment Management ("Lear"), a Dallas-based investment advisor focused on achieving superior risk-adjusted returns, marked its first anniversary. In its first year, Lear grew its assets, team and technology platform, and today stands poised for continued growth amid the turbulent economic markets.
"The adversity in the markets has showcased the importance of our disciplined research and portfolio management process," said Managing Partner Rick Lear. "Specifically, our performance affirms that the firm's skillful synthesis of dynamic economic data, proprietary modeling, and deep industry knowledge can yield above-average returns while mitigating risk."
As Lear enters its second year of operations, it is investing in an infrastructure designed to further leverage its research capabilities. This will, in turn, accelerate and enhance Lear's data gathering capabilities centered around valuation inputs (both quantitative and qualitative) and stock and bond market metrics. At the same time, the firm will continue to invest in risk management capabilities to ensure the integrity of a truly well-rounded portfolio.
"Lear's emphasis on teamwork, creativity and independent thought enables us to construct dynamic portfolios that mitigate risk and enhance returns for investors," continued Lear. "But more importantly, this approach supports what we believe to be the true Lear mission: helping our investors achieve their goals over long period of time.
"I want to thank our investors for believing in us," Lear concluded. "Their continued loyalty is a testament to our team and our research, and we remain committed to working vigilantly, on their behalf, to better understand the ever-changing global capital markets."
Separately, the firm announced the launch of a new website that further highlights its differentiated research and investing processes which consists of four pillars: Purpose; Focus & Discipline; Creative Thinking & Research; and Superior Outcomes.
