Regardless of the age of a person, everyone should continue their efforts to grow their stock portfolio as much as they can. There are several good reasons why this should be the case. You will be able to:
Increase your long-term retirement income
Be more confident in your retirement income longevity
Contribute more to the ministries and charities you care about
Leave a reasonable financial legacy to your heirs, and
Have more fun with hopefully less financial stress
Our portfolio strategies can be used for both your liquid assets as well as your IRA's. Many are concerned about the risk involved in the stock market, and rightly so, particularly for pre and post retirees. So, how can you accomplish these objectives and still minimize your risk to an acceptable level, while also minimizing fees and taxes? By utilizing the services of LifePro Asset Management.
What makes LPAM different?
Performance Results - Isn't that your objective? If you could get consistently better results with less risk, wouldn't you want to? Many experts, particularly avid proponents of passive index funds say you can't consistently outperform the market over a long period of time. While it is true that most active managers haven't been able to do it, that doesn't mean it can't be done.
Since the inception of our Tactical Growth Portfolio we have outperformed the benchmark S&P 500 Index by 159.85% That's an average outperformance of almost 40% per year, so it would appear it is possible to outperform the market. if you have the right strategy and management team. (see more stats below) How well have you done and wouldn't you like to do better?
Less Risk - In 2008 and part of 2009 the S&P 500 Index went down by 54%. Why did most portfolios go down with it? Because they invested their growth stocks in an S&P 500 index fund or mutual funds. In an index fund you are stuck with both the good and the bad, and you can't make any changes. You are told to buy and hold and eventually it will come back to pre-downturn levels. In 2008-09 it took 4 years to recover. After the great depression it took 25 years.
This might be fine if you have a long time horizon to invest, however, what if you're retired or getting close to retirement? You really can't afford a major loss. The problem is not necessarily being invested in stocks, although sometimes you should be totally out of the market, but that you can't make changes quickly enough if you need too. By investing in 20-25 high-quality individual stocks we can move rapidly to avoid a major drawdown, as well as increase our performance results.
Client emotions also play a major role in achieving unsatisfactory results due to impulsive decisions to sell when they shouldn't, because of the fear factor when the market starts to go down a bit. A famous Dalbar Study has indicated that over the last 30 year period the S&P 500 Index has been up 10.16%, while individual investors have only been up by 3.98%. Acting as a "Swing Coach", I help our client's resist this temptation by having confidence in our approach and long-term process.
When it comes too investing, there are two approaches you can take; tactical and passive. At LifePro Asset Management we prefer a tactical approach to investing.
'Buy and Hope' is not an investment strategy
Americans have been conditioned to believe in a passive investment approach. They’re told to buy and hold onto a set of products and continue the course even when the market crashes by 54%. This ‘buy and hope’ mentality with index funds is cheap, but can be potentially dangerous. For those that own mutual funds, their charters dictate they must keep a large percentage of their assets invested in the market, which at times can be problematic. Mutual funds can also have very high fees, and are certainly not tax efficient.
LifePro Asset Management’s approach to investing is different. We take a tactical and personalized approach to everything we do. From the selection of markets, to sectors, to the 20-25 individual stocks we purchase, every decision made is tactical and customized to align with your individual goals. This allows you to have unparalleled access and control to your account that is difficult to find anywhere else.
Tactical strategies intended to outperform the S&P 500
LifePro Asset Management’s objective is to target positive absolute returns by tactically managing your money at all points of the economic cycle. The investment team identifies companies that command disruptive and dominant leadership in areas of the economy; positioned to benefit from many sources of sustainable, long-term growth.
An established, systematic investment discipline
Over the last 15 years, LifePro Asset Management has been developing a tactical asset allocation discipline driven from data, not emotion. This allows your account to focus on absolute returns based on your annual goals.
Investment portfolios driven by time and based on capital needs. Tactically managed investment portfolios offered by LifePro Asset Management are goal-oriented portfolios with investments that are recognizable and liquid. Your account is also fully-portable and can be moved at any time.
How tactical asset allocation works
Based off of a simple traffic light system, LifePro Asset Management looks at five key areas of the market. Depending upon these areas and their respective internal market indicators, we label the current state of tactical investing as green, yellow, or red.
GREEN Fully Invest in Market
Signals include: Most stocks participating, economically-sensitive sectors outperforming, industrial production cycle healthy, and inventories low and new orders strong.
Begin to Raise Cash
Signals include: Less stocks participating, banking lending becoming more restrictive, signs of inventory backlog, and defensive sectors starting to outperform.
Move to 100% Cash
Signals include: Less stocks participating, more stocks falling versus rising in a rising tape, corporate credit risk rising, and inventory correction underway.
How well has this tactical allocation process worked?
Most financial experts consider the S&P 500 index to be the benchmark measurement for investment growth strategies. How are you personally doing against this benchmark?
Consider the performance results of the Tactical Opportunity Growth Portfolio offered by LifePro Asset Management:
This portfolio has been able to significantly outperform the S&P 500 benchmark since its inception. In this regard, since Jan. 2017 our TOP strategy is up +227.62% at the end of 2020, thereby outperforming the S&P 500 by +159.85%
For the year 2020, our growth portfolio was up +101.05% , after fees, despite only a +16.26% price increase for the S&P 500 over the same time period. *see Disclosures Below
Similar to 2019 when the TOP strategy was up +41.20%, it is once again one of the top performing growth strategies in the country.* If you have been able to outperform these investment results on your growth equity accounts (including IRA'S) . . . congratulations. If not, why not give us a closer look?
We also can design tax-managed accounts as well.
While past performance is certainly no indication of future performance, we are pleased with our results thus far and look forward to a continuation of excellent results for our clients in the future.
