As a Parsec client, you might wonder how we choose and monitor the investments in your portfolio. Because we value transparency, we would like to shed some light on how we make these decisions and give you some insight into investment management at Parsec.
Parsec invests in a variety of securities for its clients. These may include mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), and individual stocks, among others. All of these investments can and do experience significant price pullbacks from time to time. While Parsec’s research committee focuses on investments it can hold for the long-term and performs significant due diligence before adding any new positions, price declines still happen. In this article we will discuss how we monitor investment securities and our process when a stock or fund does not perform as expected.
