Investment Strategy

The portfolio is designed to invest in active mutual funds as well as traditional and enhanced indexed investment strategies through tax and cost-efficient Exchange Traded Funds (ETF). Each ETF and mutual fund is thoroughly evaluated for its fees, strategy, market segment, risk, and corporate sponsor. It is the objective of the portfolio to diversify among smart (strategic alpha producing) beta indexed based ETFs. The smart beta portfolios typically seek underlying securities that represent strong corporate fundamentals such as earnings and growth to name a few. Strategic alpha is designed to seek a better risk adjusted return compared to traditional cap weighted indexed strategies.

The objective of this portfolio is to include mutual funds and ETF portfolios with broad diversification across many different markets whether long or short. The portfolio may not react or perform similar to the stock market or bond market over the short-term due the alpha seeking portfolios that are seeking a better risk adjusted return. The portfolio is expected to perform less than the stock market, but greater than the bond market over time.

Designed for the following investors:

  • The need minimal or no dividends/cash flow
  • The need for growth of principal with low correlation to the stock market and bond market
  • A diversifier to traditional stocks and bonds attempting to reduce overall risk

Available Variants:

  • Only offered as a global portfolio
  • Only offered as a moderate risk tolerance
