Investment Philosophy The term "Organic Architecture" refers to architecture that is in harmony with its environment. It is form and function that are both correct and appropriate in terms of their time and place, and most importantly, in terms of the connection with its occupants. In the financial planning process, these same concepts can also be applied.Few people would venture to build a home without a complete set of plans, drawn by a board-certified architect or engineer. Yet many individuals, often with substantial net worth, find themselves on a financial path with no plan, and without qualified guidance.Our "organic" financial planning process is one that is inherently connected to your unique goals and objectives, your personal lifestyle, your attitudes toward risk/reward, and your available time horizon. At Granite Capital, investing like architecture is an art as well as a science. Both can be described as a synthesis of logic and emotion.
