Welcome to Global Key Advisors

We are a global asset manager committed to innovation underpinned by extensive research in the approaches we pursue.

As index funds increasingly pressure conventional asset managers through lower costs and superior performance, we respond with fresh perspectives grounded in analytical thoroughness to bring value to our investors.

We serve a limited number of clients, allowing us to focus on optimal solutions for each situation.

Investment Approach

Our approach is differentiated by a focus on identifying and refining overlooked data sources offering insight for statistically driven strategies. We believe most quantitative portfolios inherently risk acting on stale information or themes that lose validity in rapidly changing markets. We instead track and analyze data from public sources generated through live human decisions and activities that may have predictive value pertaining to specific investment opportunities.

We offer investment advisory services covering a range of asset management and financial planning needs for individuals, families and institutional investors.

We offer fee-based investment management services for individuals, families and institutional investors. We seek superior long-term returns emphasizing risk management and broad diversification in our strategies which are unique for the investment methodologies we employ.

We manage four equity portfolios which together provide broad exposure across global markets. Statistically based, the portfolios are grounded in a philosophy of maximum diversification. Our signature trait as an asset manager is an unconventional approach toward security selection. With prevailing investment methodologies having long lagged benchmark indices, we believe that only research underpinned by genuine innovation offers a likelihood of outperforming returns otherwise attainable through index funds over time.

We will seek to understand your objectives and circumstances before tailoring a comprehensive plan to suit your needs.  We will conduct an analysis involving in depth discussions on overall financial life goals, risk tolerances, time horizons, and special short and longer term factors that may apply.  Over time we will continually work together to ensure that your plan remains relevant and focused on what you seek to achieve with the assets under our care.

We offer additional investment options to accredited investors.  We appreciate your interest in our portfolios and look forward to speaking further in person.
