What is Alpha Risk Solutions?
If you are looking for a core portfolio that is well-suited for mid-to-large-sized pools of assets, consider the advantages of Alpha Risk Solutions.
Specially designed for investors looking for ways to optimize their level of risk-adjusted return, Alpha Risk Solutions offers a powerful alternative – or complement – to typical “buy and hold” investment strategies.
ARS is a proprietary rules-based engine that provides asset managers, advisors, and investors with clearly defined “buy and sell” signals for optimizing the impact of tactical decision-making.
Yesterday’s Portfolios May No Longer Be Enough To Meet Today’s Challenges.
The “buy and hold” investment credo is no longer unquestioned.
Rigidly “strategic,” conservative investment approaches tend to ignore periods when more flexible, tactical actions are required.
Following the market correction of 2008-2009, an Asian Development Bank report pointed out that the value of global financial assets including stocks, bonds and currencies fell by more than $50 trillion in 2008 alone, equivalent to a year of lost world gross domestic product.1
Doesn’t it make sense to try to avoid these cataclysmic declines through tactical decision-making if possible?
Traditional Asset Allocation Models Have Proven Problematic
Recent history proved that this traditional view may be too narrow.
Three major market corrections in 20 years have brought this message home to investors: They must be more agile in the pursuit of capital appreciation or suffer severe losses during turbulent periods.
“Buy and hold” investing that relies on diversification and periodic (often annual) rebalancing to combat volatility and dramatic “drawdowns” is no longer enough. On the other hand, tactical decision-making offers an approach that permits flexible, opportunistic moves across shorter time periods.
