Boston Financial Management (BFM) generally employs an investment strategy which emphasizes a long term point of view. Securities purchased consist predominantly of investment-grade securities including common and preferred stocks; bonds and notes of corporations, federal, state, and local governments and agencies; mutual funds; and ETFs. Covered call options may be written for client accounts from time to time, as appropriate. BFM does not ordinarily engage in short sales or margin transactions. They generally do not participate in any IPOs or secondary offerings.The firm builds diversified equity portfolios of high-quality companies purchased at that can be purchased at attractive valuations. BFM believes compelling opportunities can be found in both growth and value stocks, and that core portfolios should contain a blend of both. The firm contends that a global perspective is essential in the construction of equity portfolios. They accomplish this by investing in U.S. based corporations that derive a significant portion of their revenue from overseas markets, as well as in ADRs of foreign-based industry leaders. BFM augments their international approach through the select use of actively managed international mutual funds and ETFs that invest in companies headquartered outside the US.BFM's fixed income investment objectives are to generate current income, preserve capital, provide liquidity, and enhance stability in balanced portfolios. Their active approach seeks to anticipate interest rate changes and seek to capitalize on relative value between sectors in consideration of the impact of tax-efficiency. The foundation of BFM's bond portfolio management is the level and direction of interest rates. They build the core bond portfolio with high quality taxable or tax-exempt bonds and then diversify the core with fixed income instruments that augment the income and volatility goals of the portfolio. BFM utilizes a variety of fixed income classes: US Government bonds; US agency bonds; high quality municipal bonds; high quality investment grade corporate bonds; mid-investment grade corporate bonds; and preferred stocks.
