Founded in 1991, Wellesley Investment Advisors, Inc. was created based on the principals of Limited Risk Investing. Limited Risk Investing involves the melding of two seemingly contradictory goals--maximizing returns and protecting principal. Most people understand that, historically, stocks have provided the best opportunity to increase wealth over the long run. However, the potentially devastating downside risk keeps many people from investing in stocks. To alleviate this problem, Limited Risk Investing combines participation in the long-term appreciation potential of growth assets such as stocks with the protection of principal. Limited Risk Investing enables you to participate in growth opportunities that might otherwise be too volatile for your risk tolerance.
