HighPoint Planning Partners may elect to perform their own investment research or to call on the decades-long experience of the HighPoint Advisor Group Investment Committee. Advisors utilizing their own research methods will outline their processes individually to their clients. Those who opt to leverage the research resources of the Investment Committee have direct access to the in-house intellectual capital of ten committee members, each of which employs their own individual research methodology. That methodology is brought to quarterly Investment Committee meetings where convicted opinions and thoughts are discussed in collective, resulting in a jointly-prepared quarterly market commentary. Advisors are provided access not only to the individuals, but also to the market commentary, should they wish to share those thoughts and ideas with their clients.
