We believe in providing our clients with a system designed to be low risk and low volatility portfolio management. Our belief in a Tactical Asset Management System where our platform of Private Wealth Managers can go “Risk Off” to cash can take advantage of the stock market if it goes up OR down which can potentially earn money for our clients if interest rates increase or decrease.
Your investment advisor may recommend third-party money managers who utilize investment strategies designed to minimize portfolio volatility and reduce the risk of declines in account values. Low Risk or Low Volatility strategies are generally defined as strategies that have a 10-year maximum drawdown of less than 10%. Like any other investment strategy, this approach entails risks, including the risk that client accounts can still lose value and the risk that a defensive position may, at any given point in time, prevent client accounts from appreciating in value.
There is no guarantee that managers will be able to avoid future market losses by going risk off to cash. In addition, holding cash may carry the risk that a manager will not be invested during periods of positive market performance.
