Island Light Capital and Fore Street Advisory Announce Partnership

Dover, MA and Portland ME

Island Light Capital and Fore Street Advisory Solutions are pleased to announce their new partnership.  Island Light is an investment advisory firm known for delivering its unique “Enlightened Investing” approach, while providing a suite of optimally diversified model portfolios and customized investment solutions for advisors.  Fore Street Advisory, a Maine-based marketing innovation firm, is active in sales acceleration for existing businesses in addition to incubating entrepreneurial ventures.

Island Light’s investment methodology is designed on a process called “Enlightened Investing” that integrates proven investment technology, a disciplined investment approach, efficient funds, and Island Light’s breadth of experience and sound judgment to create cost effective, risk-controlled and transparent portfolios.  Enlightened Investing is a stable approach to portfolio management, emphasizing quantitative principles and proven investment practices, while accentuating asset allocation as the most important determinant of long term success in investment planning.

The collaboration creates synergies between proven investment technologies and imaginative methods of marketing.  These innovative techniques for e-learning at Fore Street engender widespread awareness and appreciation of Island Light’s sophisticated investment processes.   Fore Street is helping to shape and market Island Light’s path-breaking and valuable CIC (Collaborative Investment Committee) process by use of e-learning methods that explain and document the substantial advantages of this exciting and cost-effective technique and its ease of use for a broad spectrum of potential clients.

“We are very excited to collaborate with the innovative people at Fore Street Advisory” said Matthew Pierce, President of Island Light Capital.  “Fore Street represents a new generation of marketing expertise, using new media, e-learning techniques and in-depth knowledge of financial services to deliver a polished and effective message.  One of the tenets of Enlightened Investing is the importance of collaboration with like-minded companies to produce effective solutions.  This partnership is an example of that philosophy.  The folks at Fore Street share our vision.  Their marketing strategy and implementation are highly effective and we look forward to growing our businesses together. We think Fore Street has an important role to play in Island’s growth strategy.”

Roy Van Til of Fore Street Advisory Solutions said this about the collaborative association between the two firms:  “We are pleased to assist Island Light in the successful dissemination of its array of statistically sound and effective model portfolios and its promulgation of the innovative CIC approach as a more enlightened and impressive way of investing in today’s risk averse but uncertain investment environment.”
