Alhambra Investments

Our namesake is the Alhambra, a fortress in southern Spain dating back to 889.  For more than a thousand years people of different backgrounds and cultures have found refuge behind her walls.  It has provided safety and protection through centuries of social unrest, political uncertainty and natural disasters, and today the Alhambra remains as strong as ever, an enduring symbol of wealth, prosperity, and security.

Like this ancient citadel, our investment strategy is intended to stand the arduous test of time.  At Alhambra Investments, our goal is to achieve wealth and security for our clients.  Capital appreciation and capital preservation are both key ingredients for a successful investing outcome and our job is finding the balance between the two.

Alhambra. A fortress against the market storms.

Independence, At Some Point

The Federal Reserve is ostensibly an independent agency of the government. Already it is beset by a contradiction. How can it be independent if it is otherwise an arm of the federal structure? It’s a...
