The investments we make are guided by an overall tactical strategy:
Investment Philosophy and Process
At Strategic Financial Concepts (SFC), we follow an established investment philosophy that combines multiple asset classes in an effort to achieve higher returns while lowering the risk of losing principal. Additionally, we incorporate a systematic process, replicating a disciplined approach often utilized in managing large institutional pension and endowment funds, which we overlay with our own proprietary strategy.
With the goal of improving investment performance, SFC utilizes a tactical asset allocation strategy that implements periodic and opportunistic adjustments to portfolios. When we formulate tactical modifications, we consider factors such as economic, market, demographic and geopolitical trends.
SFC’s Tactical Investment Strategy Portfolios are made up of a collection of investment vehicles. These portfolios typically consist of U.S. and international stocks, bonds, natural resources, real estate and other alternative investments. Portfolios include investments that are closed to retail investors.
What Distinguishes SFC from Other Managers?
Our proprietary investment management process is unique from other programs. It is flexible in executing portfolio adjustments during bull and bear markets. While not a “market-timing” program, asset classes are over or under weighted based on economic, technical and valuation factors. Value can be found at different points in an economic cycle, providing potential profits. To find these investments, SFC has considerable internal and external research resources available to it.
As an independent investment advisory firm, SFC has access to a multitude of investment products through discount brokerage platforms. Through these partnerships, we apply our investment expertise to construct cost efficient, diversified portfolios, in an attempt to maximize the probability of achieving your financial goals.
No strategy assures success or guarantees against loss. Tactical allocation may involve more frequent buying and selling of assets and will tend to general higher transaction cost. Investors should consider the tax consequences of moving positions more frequently. Stock investing involves risk including loss of principal. The fast price swings in natural resources/commodities will result in significant volatility in an investor’s holdings. Bonds are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values will decline as interest rates rise and bonds are subject to availability and change in price. international investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and political instability and may not be suitable for all investors. Alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors and should be considered as an investment for the risk capital portion of the investor’s portfolio. The strategies employed in the management of alternative investments may accelerate the velocity of potential losses.
