Adaptable Investing

Direct Access

Market conditions change, but many portfolios do not

Common methods of portfolio construction, like MPT, attempt to pair investors with target allocations based largely upon risk tolerance. But inputs for these models rely heavily on historical averages, making them rigid and unable to adjust to present-day conditions.

This can result in portfolios that are misaligned with market risks and opportunities, causing frustration and anxiety for you and your clients.

Our strategies help portfolios weather market changes

With our adaptable investment strategies, we help you make traditional allocations become more flexible. We continuously monitor financial conditions and modify investment exposures accordingly to help avoid pitfalls and take advantage of opportunities.

The resulting portfolios strike a balance between market trends and your clients' specific goals, which fosters better outcomes and increased satisfaction.

Investment Strategies

DRIV Core

DRIV Core is a tactical allocation strategy that seeks to achieve returns comparable to the broad U.S. stock market over full cycles but with less volatility and downside risk. The goal is to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns over the long run. This approach focuses on varying the portfolio allocation between stock and bond investments over time and through different market conditions, based on our analysis of valuations and projected returns.

DRIV Hedged

DRIV Hedged is a hedged equity strategy that seeks to achieve returns comparable to the broad U.S. stock market over full cycles but with less volatility and downside risk. The goal is to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns over the long run. This approach utilizes a blend of index-based equity investments, options hedging, and volatility trading techniques. The combination is designed to provide exposure to gains in the stock market while guarding against significant losses.

Core Equity & Options

The Core Equity and Options (CEO) strategy is an actively managed approach that generally holds 20 to 30 large capitalization equities and may write longer duration covered call options and/or cash-secured put options. When compared to an all stock portfolio, the primary objectives in using options are to increase cash flow, reduce volatility, and manage net exposure to the underlying equities.

Global Equity

The Global Equity strategy is a technically-driven, stock-based approach that seeks representation in the strongest areas of the U.S., International, and Emerging markets. This strategy provides our clients with a more concentrated approach to global investing.

Strategic Equity

The Strategic Equity portfolio is an actively managed approach that generally holds 20 to 50 large capitalization equities. This strategy seeks long term capital appreciation with returns comparable to broad measures of the U.S. equity market over long run market cycles.

Enhanced Income

The Enhanced Income strategy focuses on current income as a primary objective, with capital appreciation as a secondary objective. This strategy surveys areas of the traditional bond market in addition to non-traditional, liquid sources of income such as MLPs, REITs, energy royalty trusts, convertible bonds, preferred stock, etc. The broad investment scope provides the opportunity to perform well in an inflationary or rising interest rate environment when bonds often do not.
