Palisade Capital Management is thrilled to announce that the firm has been included in CNBC’s ranking of the top 100 financial advisory firms in 2020. The “CNBC FA 100” celebrates advisory firms that top the list with regard to offering comprehensive planning and financial services that help clients navigate their financial lives. The CNBC FA 100 rankings take into consideration factors beyond assets under management and are based on a proprietary methodology developed by CNBC in partnership with data provider AccuPoint Solutions. In preparing the CNBC FA 100, data was culled from thousands of advisory firms.
Palisade is heartbroken to announce the loss of Sue Donahue on June 8, 2020 after a brief non-COVID-19 related illness. Sue served as Executive Assistant to Palisade President & CEO Alison Berman and Chief Investment Officer Dan Veru, and previously worked for over 20 years as the Executive Assistant to Palisade Founder and CEO Martin Berman.
As mentioned in our prior updates, all Palisade team members have the capability and tools to work from home for extended periods of time without any disruption to our investment management operations or your client experience. In fact, every Palisade employee has worked remotely for at least a portion of the past three weeks while our office technically remained open.
Anxiety and fear are running high across the board, and with good reason, as the world is simultaneously dealing with two of the most sensitive topics for individuals: health and finances. We understand your concerns and want to once again reassure you that Palisade is operating smoothly during this difficult period.
In January 2021, Palisade Capital Management published a research piece entitled “The Time For Convertibles Is (Still) Now”, where we outlined the advantages of investing in the convertible asset class, both historically and tactically, given an impending, post COVID-19 economic cycle.
In this study, we seek to touch upon and update key aspects of Palisade's unique approach to investing in convertibles. Palisade's convertible strategies emphasize Growth convertibles (as opposed to Value convertibles) and Large- and Mid-Capitalization convertibles (rather than Small-Capitalization convertibles).
