Pacific Capital Associates


We manage personalized investment portfolios for individuals, trusts, and businesses.

Our investment approach draws on well-established principals of value investing: that markets are frequently—and sometimes significantly—mispriced, and that investors are well served to ignore the crowd and to patiently focus on valuations. We place our clients in a diversified basket of investments that are reasonably valued or undervalued, actively adjusting the type and amount of exposure based on valuations, and always staying focused on long-term outcomes.

Over time, this strategy has delivered market-like returns with significantly less risk and, most importantly, a much lower chance of the kind of portfolio disaster that can come from investing in highly overpriced markets.
