Auour, pronounced 'our'

A Unique Name for a Unique Approach

That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet…

The name Auour is a derivation of the Icelandic word for wealth.  Within the Icelandic language, it connotes independence, strength, analytical thought, and nurturing. These are characteristics that we look to exemplify within our practice.

We pronounce our firm’s name as ‘our’. It signifies how the founders started the firm with ‘our’ money and having aligned our incentives with those of our clients.  

Client Focused Solutions

Every client is unique, requiring a client-centric approach in creating tailored solutions fitting the needs of the client.

Seasoned Professionals

At the heart of the firm is over seven decades of investment experience that has learned from prior market cycles.

Risk Managed Approach

Strategies are built using an empirically-based methodology to detect changes in global market risk.

Innovative Approach

Auour is recognized as an innovator in downside mitigation, advancing investment practices for (au)our clients’ benefit.

Advanced Technology

At (au)our core is the Auour Regime Model (ARM), a proprietary algorithm that monitors risk across global investment markets.

Full Cycle Partner

The firm strives to produce superior results in all market environments so that clients can gain comfort in their financial wellbeing.

Sustained success is achieved by minimizing emotional responses to changing market environments.  Our systematic process built on fundamental principles resists the temptation of taking on risk when not being paid and avoids becoming risk-averse at the worst time out of regret.
