We only invest in strategies we understand and managers that pass our on site review.

Joseph S. Davies CFA, Principal

Joe began learning the many detailed facets of the capital markets right out of college. With over 20 years in the financial industry his career has taken him through the back office, client relations, compliance, trading, and portfolio management. He has studied the many aspects of the capital markets and received many recognitions (licenses, CFA designation, etc.). Now he uses his in-depth investment knowledge to formulate and execute solution oriented portfolio's for our clients.

Joe is focused on the many detailed and technical aspects of the capital markets as well as the investment structures that exist today. This includes something as simple as understanding a manager's investment philosophy in constructing a diversified equity portfolio to modeling the risks a manager assumes in a highly complex hedging strategy. If he can't get transparency in what the manager is investing in or understand the investment, it does not go in clients' portfolios.

Joe also leads the team in formulating a diverse yet complementary set of investment managers for Windsor's clients. While the investment opportunities are endless, some of the best investment decisions are the ones they don't invest in.
