We bring traditional financial services, legal counsel, retirement solutions and wealth management under one roof. Our mission is to empower individuals, small businesses, and major institutions to reach long-term financial goals.
Through our combined team of professionals, tools and products, we are changing the way that advisors and investors think about and plan for the future. Our unique approach to planning and investing minimizes fear and uncertainty with collaboration, transparency and technology.
In the early 2000s, after his family lost a large sum of inheritance to the 2000-2002 recession, our CEO Chadd Mason dedicated his life to investment education. He spent years immersing himself in the industry by meeting with professionals, speaking with peers and investing his own money - but mostly, he spent night after night reading books like The Intelligent Investor, Technical Analysis of Financial Markets and Modern Portfolio Theory and Investment Analysis - all of which play a huge part in our current investment philosophy.
Chadd and long-time friend, law school buddy and tennis partner Louis Shaff decided to embark on the journey to providing their friends, family members and colleagues a new way of managing risk and planning for their financial futures. At this time, the name “Cabana” was decided while on a beach vacation with their families.
With the help of a small team, Chadd released a proprietary algorithm designed to help shelter investors from risk by striving to limit losses during down markets, while still participating in up markets. The science behind the algorithm was developed over five years and tested across varying market cycles, including the bear market of 2001-2003 and the market crash of 2008-2009. Cabana’s Cyclical Asset Reallocation Algorithm (“CARA”) drives the investment decision making in all of Cabana’s Target Drawdown Portfolios.Learn More About CARA
The firm expanded into the institutional space with the goal of offering its portfolios and unique services to more advisors and clients across the country. As a result of this expansion, Cabana created multiple variations of the original Model Portfolio to suit the needs of investors across the risk spectrum. Those portfolios are now part of the first-ever Target Drawdown Series.Learn More About The Target Drawdown Series
We relocated our headquarters to the famous Fay Jones building in downtown Fayetteville. The building's architecture and local roots hold significant weight in Cabana’s branding and overall mission.
Cabana Asset Management was ranked the #1 fastest growing registered investment adviser in the U.S. by Financial Advisor magazine. To highlight our fast-paced growth and unique story, the magazine featured our founders in their August issue.
