“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”

– Warren Buffett

This is about being patient, ignoring the trends, not chasing the market darlings or hot sectors, being diligent, understanding the value of the businesses in which we are investing, and sticking to our proven process. In the short term markets are not rational. We, like many smart money managers, don’t view volatility as risk but rather as opportunity. Fear and greed drive the market; part of our job is to be greedy when others are fearful and to be fearful when others are greedy.

About Evans Investment Counsel

Our focus has always been on capital preservation and risk mitigation. Our track record speaks to our commitment and ability to grow our clients’ wealth over time. Over the last 29+ years, a period which encompasses a number of recessions and stock market crashes, our client portfolios have outperformed their relevant benchmarks.

Client Profiles

Most of our clients are families seeking management of their taxable personal, professional and business wealth as well as non-taxable registered plans. Some clients open joint accounts with their spouse; others decide separate accounts would better meet their needs. Many clients also establish trusts for their children or create family charitable foundations which we then manage.
