Foundations Smart Core Series

The Foundations Smart Core Series seeks to capture uncorrelated sources of return through exposure to both multi-factor and single factor ETFs. Single factor ETFs focus on one target factor such as value or momentum that apply a filter to the fund and adjust weights accordingly. Multi-Factor ETFs utilize innovative ways and proprietary algorithms in an attempt to beat the market but can increase volatility.  This mixed strategy seeks to provide the best of both approaches while also managing risk through asset class balancing.

The models seek to manage performance and volatility with Smart Core 40 being the most conservative with an equity/bond ratio of 40/60 and Smart Core 100 being composed entirely of equity investments with an alternative sleeve. The portfolios are traded semi-tactically through quarterly evaluation to determine ideal assets based on overall balance of the portfolio and economic conditions.

Foundations Strategic Series

The Foundations Strategic series is based on a refined version of Modern Portfolio Theory, which seeks to optimize asset allocations based on risk and returns with an additional focus toward risk assessment of each asset class incorporated throughout the model.  By viewing the portfolio with a focus on risk categories, we believe we’re better able to truly diversify assets by reducing concentration away from differently labeled sectors that actually react similarly under certain market conditions. Model positions are implemented based on a top down macro view that incorporates fundamental analysis with economic analysis and geopolitical analysis across domestic and international geographies.

Cabana Target Drawdown Series

The Target Drawdown series seeks to limit volatility range over a one-year period peak to trough drawdown number.  (16 being the most aggressive, 5 being the most conservative).  The portfolio is tactical and very reactive to market movement utilizing a broad spectrum of primary asset classes like equities, bonds, real estate and commodities.  The portfolio will incorporate scene changes into its strategy where it is tactically reallocated into a more bearish or bullish strategy based on economic cycles and market conditions.

Foundations Flex Series

The Flex series is allocated 50% to the momentum-based tactical model and 50% to the economic trends model.  The model is structured using ETF’s and mutual funds that use various strategies that underlie the momentum model algorithms to look at price trends and economic trends and then apply optimization techniques that seek to maximize return while managing downside risks.  We believe the reactive market capture and reduction of possible downside of the momentum-based tactical model works alongside the more strategic constant market participation of the economic trends model to seek to provide better risk-adjusted returns.

Foundations Economic Trends Series

The Economic Trends series of models are designed to remain invested throughout the ups and downs of the market cycles, but also provide an underlying rule-based mechanism, that if triggered, aims to reduce downside risk.  The models utilize ETF’s and mutual funds and are structured based on Modern Portfolio Theory with diversification across asset classes to seek to optimize risk and return.  The low trading frequency of the models make them inherently tax efficient and they are re-balanced once a year.
