Investment Management in Southern California

The returns on your investment are maximized when we take care of all the risks.

Welcome to the best investment management in Southern California

AFO Southern California is here to maximize the returns and minimize the risks on your investment. We do this through calculated portfolio diversification that will get you the results you are looking for.


We center each portfolio around the U.S. Stock Market because domestic equity is widely known as the most efficient marketplace to invest in. Then, we complement each portfolio with less efficient markets like small capitalization equity, fixed income, and international equity. The addition of these provides opportunities for alpha generation.

AFO Southern California also believes that alternative investments are the best opportunity to add alpha to a portfolio while generating diversification benefits. “Non-traditional’ investments include:

  • Private Equity
  • Hedge Funds
  • Commodities
  • Real Estate

Arrowroot Family Office has expertise in alternative investments and privileged access to deal flow in private equity and direct real estate participation through our integrated platform and extensive industry contacts. By using all of these vehicles, we can capture the most efficient risk-adjusted returns.

From these asset categories, we narrow them down to asset classes, which we can use to create a diversified portfolio for you that captures the risk you are willing to take.

Diversification is a key component of each portfolio and is what allows us to reach your investment goals.


We acknowledge that investment management can be a confusing and overwhelming process, which is why your advisor will be with you every step of the way. Our first and foremost priority is you!
