DBR Four Seasons Process

Our research partner Hedgeye provides analysis focused on economic GROWTH, INFLATION and Federal Reserve POLICY (GIP) which are the core variables that drive investment performance. Using GIP as our lens, we created our own Four Seasons Investment process, which together with our clients’ level of risk tolerance, forms the foundation of our asset allocation process. Each season represents a specific period in the economic cycle which should have a unique allocation to stocks, bonds and cash.
