Approach

A different approach to core portfolio investments

It is close to impossible for individuals to be the idealized “buy and hold” long-term investors they know they should be given the tools that have been available to them. Investors understand that attractive long-term returns require long-term investment. But, after their retirement portfolios experience a significant decline in value, their financial survival instincts make it extraordinarily difficult for them to keep their remaining wealth at-risk in the same portfolio strategy. In fact, the less wealthy investors feel, the lower their tolerance for risk and the more likely they are to abandon their investment strategy.

αvm®: The value of managing risk rather than chasing returns

 

By actively managing portfolio risk, AlphaSimplex portfolios aim to make it easier for individuals to stay invested and to achieve the potential returns associated with long-term investing. Rather than passively accepting whatever level of risk the markets may offer, we actively adjust our market positions to provide investors with a more consistent amount of risk within our strategies. By offsetting changes in market risk through AdaptiveVolatility Management® (αvm®), we believe we can place guardrails on the variability of risk and the potential for sudden and extreme loss, enabling investors to stay focused on the long term.
