Benefits:

Dampens overall portfolio volatility and improves risk-adjusted returns

Quality

Minimizes potential drawdowns and portfolio volatility

Value

Done correctly, adding factor exposure to your portfolio can offset risk while enhancing returns. But it’s important to understand that all factors exhibit cyclicality. That is, each one is right for a different type of market environment.

Get in touch with us today to find out your level of exposure, and if you have the right factors working in your corner.

Portfolio Insurance

Would you ever consider not having homeowners insurance? Or car insurance? Or health insurance? Probably not. We all recognize the risks associated with these types of events, and so we mitigate that risk through the use of insurance.

This same risk-mitigation technique can be applied to your investment portfolio, but there are some caveats. Depending on market conditions, this type of protection can be expensive, and therefore it should not be in place at all times (only when financial conditions dictate).

Portfolio insurance is also not something you can simply call an insurance broker to purchase. It must be done through the unique application of options contracts to your portfolio.

One of the other primary benefits of portfolio insurance is that it allows you to protect your portfolio without selling assets. This can be particularly advantageous in taxable accounts.

Target-Date Bonds

Bonds play an integral role in a portfolio, but how you own bonds can have a major impact on the safety of your investment. Investors who own bonds through a typical bond fund are sacrificing one of the primary benefits that bonds provide: the almost-assured return of principal (assuming the issuer doesn't default).

This is because bond funds never mature. Instead, as certain bonds inside the fund mature, they are replaced with newer issues to maintain a target average maturity for the fund. The unfortunate result is that investors in these types of bond funds have less assurance that their principal is protected.

But thankfully, there are set of new products on the market that deliver the safety of individual bonds, but with the ease and customization of ETFs. These products provide final distribution at maturity, the liquidity and transparency of an ETF, and the ability to precisely control maturity, yield and credit quality.

You owe it to yourself to make sure that your principal is truly protected.

Alternative Assets

Stocks and bonds are the foundational elements of a portfolio, but they represent only two of many available asset classes. The inclusion of so called "alternative assets" can improve the risk and return characteristics of a portfolio to help achieve a variety of desired outcomes.

  • Uncorrelated Assets - to make sure your portfolio thrives under all market conditions
  • Store-of-Value Assets - to protect against declining fiat currencies and the ever-present erosion of your purchasing power by inflation
  • Safely Leveraged Assets - to enhance returns and build wealth faster through the systematic and safe use of leverage

This is where assets such as bitcoin (and other crypto-based assets), gold, and residential and commercial real estate come into play. Each one offers a unique risk-reward profile that when integrated with your core holdings, creates a resilient portfolio that can withstand nearly anything.
