Eagle Ridge’s portfolios are either customized to individual client needs, or follow one of our three principal strategies. Our goal is for our model portfolio strategies to generate competitive returns versus their respective benchmarks, but to do so with slightly less risk and with industry sector weights that diverge from benchmarks based on where our research on individual businesses leads us.

Following are the fundamental characteristics of the strategies managed (as of 12/31/17):
