Our approach to portfolio construction takes into account:
- Performance – Mutual funds and ETFs are selected for our model portfolios only after being thoroughly compared against their peers using a proprietary set of both quantitative and qualitative measurements.
- Expenses – Fees and expenses, if not managed effectively, can be a real drag on the total return of an investment portfolio.
- Volatility – Slow and steady really does win the race. Avoiding steep losses and prolonged drawdowns can have a profound impact on the value of an account. Our tactical strategy is intended to reduce this impact and smooth rates of return over the long term.
