MANAGED PORTFOLIO STRATEGIES
Income (Total Return)
This strategy is for the growing pool of investors who seek an income stream, but also want 100% liquidity. A low-risk strategy, it uses a variety of investment tools. It is also an excellent complement to illiquid investments as an income-strategy portfolio is not penalized for withdrawals.
This strategy is for the risk-averse investor who wants some participation in the market. Its guiding principle is to attempt to avoid a negative return in any rolling 12-month period. A defensive portfolio, it may experience high turnover and may build high proportions of cash as dictated by market pressures.
One of our flagship strategies, this approach is for the more conservative investor who seeks less volatility and competitive returns. Since 1984, this blended, equity and fixed-income strategy has produced returns near the S&P 500 with about 65% of the standard deviation.
Faith and Values ® Balanced
The Faith and Values® Balanced Portfolio is for the moderate investor who would like to have a balanced exposure to both the equity and bond market. This blended strategy adjusts the stock-bond ratio in response to the market environment. It provides investors a way to align their investment portfolio with their faith and values.
One of our flagship strategies, this approach is for the investor who wants full market participation and equity diversification. This strategy has successfully exceeded the returns of the S&P 500 since 1984, net of all fees, and has done so with historically less standard deviation.
This is an equity strategy for the investor who has a generous time horizon. The portfolio incorporates diversification and tax-sensitive balancing and employs a combination of the most efficient tax lot techniques to reduce realized capital gains and tax liability.
This strategy is for the investor comfortable with the potential volatility of international markets, who wants broader diversification and who seeks to capture returns from faster-growing foreign sectors.
