Brady Focus Investment Strategy

The Brady Focus Strategy is a concentrated, alternative investment approach. Our primary goal is a long-term capital appreciation. Long-term income growth is a secondary objective.

The Focus Strategy typically invests in our top 5 to 15 investment ideas with the most promising intermediate-to-long-term, risk-adjusted return potential. Investments can be in small-cap, growing companies but will favor large caps. The typical Focus position size ranges between 5% and 20%, so the performance of one investment can significantly impact the overall performance of your account. The Focus investment strategy is volatile! Your account can and likely will vary much more than the overall market. Portfolio turnover can be high as well. Sector diversification is not an objective. Neither is tax efficiency.

Focus is a highly specialized, alternative investment approach. It is not intended to be a primary investment strategy such as our Brady Core Growth, Brady Growth & Income, and Brady Balanced strategies. Focus is for highly risk-tolerant foundations and individuals seeking exposure to our top investment ideas.
