Solaris Capital Partners provides specialized advisory services that assist individuals and families and not-for-profit institutions achieve informed and disciplined decision-making.
Solaris Capital Partners believes that informed decision-making is one of the most critical components to successful investing. The more our clients understand the implications of the choices they have, the more closely aligned their investments are to their needs and objectives. Our Specialized Advisory services evolved directly from our drive to assist our clients to achieve this level of understanding. We use the full breadth of our senior colleagues’ over 150 years of the varied experiences in all aspects of investment, finance, and investment banking to give our clients what we believe is a unique and insightful perspective that augments the success of their investment process.
A non-profit’s ongoing financial success is dependent largely upon its reputation. Its programs, plant and equipment must continue to grow and improve in order for it to maintain and improve its reputation and standing. Better understanding of how the costs of its staff, programs, plant and property interrelate with its endowment is critical to optimizing a nonprofit’s long-term financial strength. Boards and staff have found our singular perspective and focus to be particularly helpful in their prudent and skillful management of their strategic objectives.
For non-profits our unique management tool integrates their endowment investment policy with their current and future budgetary and capital requirements over extended time horizons to assess and monitor their true financial viability and feasibility. For individuals and families we assist the purchase or sale of all kinds of private investments as well as facilitating domestic and international families’ complex multi-generational planning.

These issues make up a “wall of worry” that, heretofore, has been routinely scaled by investors. While many worrisome issues have been present for some time, the decline in the S&P 500 this quarter marks only its second down quarter in five years. US Treasuries provided no safe haven as yields rose and their performance was negative. Globally, credit spreads widened, leading corporate bonds to underperform sovereigns. TIPs modestly outperformed their nominal counterparts. The US dollar fell particularly against the Euro, British sterling and the Japanese yen. In the face of rising bond yields, real assets such as REITs and MLPs declined sharply.Click here to read the entire commentary
