Perspective on International Relative Strength Strategies


Why Relative Strength / Technical Analysis

We believe an investor should have a systematic investment strategy in place to capitalize on the opportunities in the financial markets. Relative strength is a technical analysis indicator / investment factor upon which each of our portfolios is built on to offer such an approach to investing.

We rely on relative strength to manage portfolios because of its adaptive nature and its long-term track record. Relative strength is simple in concept, yet powerful in application. Relative strength is simply the comparison of price performance within a universe of securities.

Different Portfolios for Different Objectives

Our Relative Strength portfolios offer a systematic approach to investing

  • Aggressive

    This Mid and Large Cap U.S. equity strategy seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation. It invests in securities that demonstrate powerful relative strength characteristics and requires that the securities maintain strong relative strength in order to remain in the portfolio.

  • Core

    This Mid and Large Cap U.S. equity strategy seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation. This portfolio invests in securities that demonstrate powerful relative strength characteristics and requires that the securities maintain strong relative strength in order to remain in the portfolio. This strategy tends to have lower turnover and higher tax efficiency than our Aggressive strategy.

  • ESG Core

    This strategy is focused on capital appreciation through exposure to companies in the Mid and Large Cap U.S. equity space that have positive ESG characteristics. This ESG portfolio invests in securities that demonstrate powerful relative strength characteristics and requires that the securities maintain strong relative strength in order to remain in the portfolio.

  • Growth

    This Mid and Large Cap U.S. equity strategy seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation with some degree of risk mitigation. This portfolio invests in securities that demonstrate powerful relative strength characteristics and requires that the securities maintain strong relative strength in order to remain in the portfolio. This portfolio also has an equity exposure overlay that, when activated, allows the account to hold up to 50% cash if necessary.

  • International

    This All-Cap International equity strategy seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation through a portfolio of international companies in both developed and emerging markets. This portfolio invests in those securities with powerful relative strength characteristics and requires that the securities maintain strong relative strength in order to remain in the portfolio. Exposure to international markets is achieved through American Depository Receipts (ADRs).

  • Global Macro

    This global tactical asset allocation strategy seeks to achieve meaningful risk diversification and investment returns. The strategy invests across multiple asset classes: Domestic Equities (long & inverse), International Equities (long & inverse), Fixed Income, Real Estate, Currencies, and Commodities. Exposure to each of these areas is achieved through exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

  • Balanced

    This strategy includes equities from our Core strategy (see above) and high-quality U.S. fixed income in approximately a 60% equity / 40% fixed income mix. This strategy seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation and income with moderate volatility.

  • Tactical Fixed Income

    This strategy seeks to provide current income and strong risk-adjusted fixed income returns. The strategy invests across multiple sectors of the fixed income market: U.S. government bonds, investment grade corporate bonds, high yield bonds, Treasury inflation protected securities (TIPS), convertible bonds, and international bonds. Exposure to each of these areas is achieved through exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
