A Single Bear Market Could Destroy a Large Portion of Your Life Savings!
The more you study the history of the stock market, the more you begin to understand the real dangers of buy and hold investing. A single bear market can destroy a large portion of what you have worked all your life to save. The nation’s largest investment firms have embraced the philosophy, “the stock market, regardless of its fluctuations, will pay off for investors over the long haul.” They are confident with the “buy and hope” strategy, regardless of economic and technical fundamentals. Their theme is and has always been, “Just hang in there long enough and you will come out ahead.” Our goal is to create consistent returns without taking you on a rollercoaster ride that will want you to get out all together.
OUR SOLUTION IS: Multi- Pro-Active Managers In One Portfolio

We believe the days of successful passive investment management are history. In fact, I could say emphatically we believe the death of the traditional portfolio has come. Although we are in the minority, we are part of a growing community of advisors who believe the use of “essential active risk management tools” are needed in order to get through the violent markets we have and will continue to experience.

Our Multi Managers Pro-Active Strategy is designed to help side-step major market downturns. Proof positive: Our combined managers were up in 2008 and have averaged over double digits for the past 5 trailing years. It doesn’t mean we won’t have short term downturns and while we can’t guarantee future results, we believe this is a plan that can work in all markets and all economies. By utilizing multiple managers we have been able to reduce even short term down turns.We can adjust managers if we see a strategy inside our multi-manager platform isn’t working. Yes! We will fire a manager!
Our job is to manage the managers.
Choosing the best of the best managers is our ongoing goal and commitment to you.
