Since our inception, Kerns Capital Management has offered strategies that seek to deliver satisfying returns with less volatility and risk.
Underlying each of our strategies is a profound appreciation for the wealth devastation caused by bear markets and the psychological impact large losses can have on an investor’s behavior and willingness to “stay the course.”
There is an old saying on Wall Street that the market is driven by just two emotions: fear and greed. Although this may be an oversimplification, behavioral finance proves it is often true. When investors lose their comfort level due to losses or market instability, they become vulnerable to these emotions, often resulting in very costly mistakes.
Our strategies seek to deliver strong growth and peace of mind from knowing that one does not have to suffer the fate of the buy and hold, long only investor, when risk is high.
