Stratton Relative Value
As a firm, Sterling is dedicated to providing outstanding investment performance and exceptional client service. We achieve this by maintaining a consistent risk management process and a service-focused business model.
As an objectives-based investment manager, we strive to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns to the assets you place in our trust. To achieve this, our primary goal is defining and managing acceptable risk. We believe success in today’s often unpredictable markets requires equal parts experience, consistency, agility, and the ability to evaluate all the risks and opportunities inherent in a given investment. We subscribe to the adage of “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Over the years, we’ve found that our approach helps us deliver consistent risk-adjusted performance over time.
The Sterling Crest
The Sterling Crest was created as a symbol of who we are, where we came from and what we are striving to achieve. The “S” signifies Sterling Capital Management, our firm name. We paid homage to our beautiful state of North Carolina by including the cardinal state bird, dogwood state flower and towering bars to represent the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. Finishing off the crest is the Latin phrase, “Pulsus Ut Libera,” which translates to “Driven to Deliver.”
