Satellite Portfolios

The following portfolios seek to provide lower correlation and expanded investment opportunities compared to our core strategies.

Focused Real Estate

SEEKS BETA AND ALPHA:
The beta allocation of the portfolio is implemented with ETFs. The alpha allocation is implemented with individual equities and seeks to invest in companies that possess attractive valuations, strong relative strength, and momentum in the fundamentals.
Beta strategies seek returns inline with an index while alpha strategies seek to outperform an index. Using this approach, the investor works with an advisor to determine willingness and ability toward risk while constructing a portfolio that meets individual objectives.

Provide investors with an adaptive real-estate portfolio constructed for all market conditions, resulting in reasonable risk-adjusted total returns compared to the general U.S. real estate market.

Structured Notes

A structured note is a custom bond created in alliance with the highest-rated financial institutions. Its return is based on equity indexes, a basket of equities, interest rates, commodities, foreign currencies, or any portfolio design that our team deems appropriate under current market conditions. The performance of a structured note is then linked to the return on the portfolio, index, or asset class we build. Structured notes provide contingent downside protection when held to maturity and limit loss to acceptable and predictable levels.
