Algorithmic Virtual Advisor (AVA)
Limiting loss (during even the most “down” of down years) is the best way to build wealth over time. Knowing this, we built an entire investment approach reflecting the need to avoid risk. Your AVA™ (Algorithmic Virtual Advisor) constantly monitors current market conditions and makes the automatic adjustment to your portfolio so you don’t have to. That’s what we call a “managed” account. Built into our program is the understanding of what is a normal fluctuation and what alerts as a true risk to your assets. We work collaboratively with technology and artificial intelligence to manage those risks effectively.
Advanced Risk-Reduction Strategy
Dynamic Risk Hedging (DRH)
DRH is our revolutionary five-step, algorithm-based portfolio management process that uses low-cost commission-free ETFs and diversifies your account across different sectors. Where other advisors may pick ETFs based on cost and diversification alone, we select and manage portfolios by allocating risk across different “budgets,” typically categorized by factors such as size, momentum, volatility, quality, and value. So, like our competitors, we focus on cost and diversification, but additionally, we manage risk by using cash, short, and correlation hedging when needed. We also rebalance when market conditions warrant it, rather than your annual account opening anniversary. This approach seeks to minimize the risk that naturally goes hand-in-hand with investing.
Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF)
Allowing you to play with as little as just one share purchase, the benefits of ETFs are multiple. Investors typically enjoy low expense ratios, no short-term redemption fees, no investment minimums, and lower taxes on gains. These funds allow broad diversification across multiple asset classes and typically cost less than a mutual fund in the same space.
We execute simple and effective trading when market risk warrants it.
Innovative Investing Network/Deals
Hybrid Investing (Active + PAssive)
Active or passive? Both! First things first: YOU control the amount of risk you want in your portfolio. Your investment profile is determined by how you answer a risk questionnaire and we work to understand what makes you tick. If you, at any time, want more or less risk or your investment objectives change, you can adjust your portfolio by resubmitting the risk questionnaire or meeting with your advisor. We then implement a hybrid active/passive strategy for you. We understand the benefit of low-cost, passive index funds and utilize some of them in our strategies. You’ll also have access to exclusive investment opportunities not available to the public.
