Markets tend to go up over time, so we’re ALWAYS INVESTED in low-cost ETFs
Severe losses can derail investors’ goals, so we’re ALWAYS HEDGED
We actively manage shorter-term options portfolio to help offset the cost of the hedge
When the market drops and the equity loses value, the put option increases in value, and vice-versa.
This counter-balancing investment approach is engineered to NOT lose big.
Simple and Effective.
A HEDGE IS NOT INSURANCE AGAINST LOSSES
The effectiveness of the hedge and degree of downside risk mitigation varies with market conditions. The Defined Risk Strategy can and does have periods of losses.
Our unique hedged-equity approach is driven by a three-step, rules-based and repeatable investment process, which removes emotions from the investment process.
The Defined Risk Strategy is uniquely Always invested, Always Hedged.
Always Invested – Equity markets tend to go up over time and outperform other asset classes over the long term.
Always Hedged – While market crises are inevitable and unpredictable, suffering large losses and long recoveries can derail investors from their goals.
We know there is a cost to carry the long-term hedge.
The DRS was launched in 1997 to provide investors with a better way to invest over full-market cycles—generate consistent rolling returns and minimize losses during bear markets.
So how’d we do?
