Manager of managers
We conduct unbiased and independent evaluations of both mutual fund and ETF investment managers. In doing so, we bring forth a superior collection of investment managers to construct risk-based asset allocation models.
Our investing goes beyond traditional asset classes and investment styles, including exposure to nontraditional and alternative strategies to focus on improving long-term risk-adjusted returns.
Employing a dynamic process that focuses on risk/reward profiles amongst all global investment asset classes offers the potential to enhance long-term performance as opportunities arise.
The primary goal of the model is to provide investors with a diversified portfolio utilizing mutual funds and ETF investments. The fixed-income strategies utilized include U.S. investment-grade corporate, corporate high-yield, U.S. government and foreign bonds, and will make up approximately 30-40% of the portfolio. The equity allocation includes both large-, mid- and small-cap U.S. and foreign equities, and will be 50-60% of the portfolio. The model will also utilize alternative investments to enhance diversification and will range between 0-20%.
