Warren Buffett says, “The #1 rule of investing is never lose money.” And yet losing money is exactly what mainstream investment managers advise when they encourage investors to ride out market downturns.
L&S Advisors believes in a smarter, safer approach to investing—one that puts protecting against the downside first. Rather than passively following the markets down, as in traditional buy-and-hold strategies, we take active and tactical steps to reduce downside exposure when our indicators signal the potential for loss. By avoiding significant drawdowns, we can focus on building wealth when the markets improve, rather than regaining capital that was lost. The goal is to deliver income and compelling long-term growth with relatively low volatility and risk.

Our tactical equity strategies are active and unconstrained, allowing us to invest wherever we see opportunity and make allocation adjustments at any time. We combine rigorous risk management and market monitoring with nimble long/cash strategies capable of adapting in real-time. All of our investment decisions are based on continuous tracking and analysis of over 100 proprietary economic data points. We strive to maximize returns in low-risk markets by investing in what we believe to be promising companies, and we aim to preserve capital in riskier climates by appropriately moving from equities to cash. It’s a disciplined, research-driven process that we trust with our own assets, which we invest alongside our clients.
