  • The Firm believes that a quantitative method of analysis provides a sound and logical procedure for making investment decisions and providing investment advice.
  • There are inherent risks in utilizing quantitative methods of analysis for making investment decisions and providing investment advice.
    • The decision and advice are based on historical data and past performance.
    • Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
      • There can be no assurance that a current investment that is based on past data will generate a positive return in the future.
    • Another important risk is that the development of the Firm’s quantitative method of analysis is reliant on real time and historical data. The real time and historical data utilized in the Firms quantitative financial models are obtained from third party sources and as such, the Firm cannot verify or guarantee the reliability and accuracy of the data.

The following are the financial models that the Firm utilizes:

Buy & Hold Quantitative Multifactor Financial Model

  • The Firm utilizes a Buy & Hold Quantitative Multifactor Financial Model that has been programmed to develop equity security portfolios that are diversified across sectors and industries. The model constrains the equity security selection process by developing equity security universes that include companies with significant market capitalization, that possess high liquidity as measured by daily trading volume and that continue to be responsive to financial factors identified as positively impacting equity security performance over at least a ten to fifteen year period.  It is important for Clients to know that when making investments in equity based portfolios that there is a risk that a portion or 100% of an investment could be lost.  Therefore, before making an investment, a client should make sure that he or she can bear the loss of his or her entire investment.  The portfolios developed by this model are subject to but are not limited to the following risk:
    • Market Risk
    • Industry Risk
    • Sector Risk
    • Management Risk
    • Other Unforeseen Risk
  • The Buy & Hold Quantitative Multifactor Financial Model does not involve frequent trading which could limit brokerage fees. Once the portfolio is established, the securities are held in the portfolio for at least a year and one day, the holding period.  If a security has to be sold and replaced by another security after the holding period, then a long-term capital gains tax is trigger and a brokerage fee is incurred.  This repositioning of the portfolio can adversely impact the performance of the overall portfolio.

Directional Quantitative Financial Model

  • The Firm utilizes a Directional Quantitative Financial Model that has been programmed to develop equity or derivative portfolios. The equities or derivatives in the portfolio are bought and sold based on statistical analyses that quantify the probability of a directional move in the overall market as measured by the S&P 500 or Russell Index 1000.  The model calculates a probability based on the past performance of the overall markets and determines an entry and exit point for the investment opportunity.  It is important for Clients to know that when making investments in equity or derivative based portfolios that there is a risk that a portion or 100% of an investment could be lost.  Therefore, before making an investment, a client should make sure that he or she can bear the loss of his or her entire investment.  The portfolios developed by this model are subject to but are not limited to the following risk:
    • Market Risk
    • Industry Risk
    • Sector Risk
    • Management Risk
    • Other Unforeseen Risk
  • The Directional Quantitative Financial Model tracks the performance of the overall market on a daily basis. This model does involve frequent trading which inherently generates additional brokerage fees and tax implications.  Therefore, the overall performance of the portfolios developed by the model could be adversely impacted by the additional brokerage fees and taxes.

Reliance on Key Personnel

  • The Firm relies, to a great extent, on the services of a limited number of individuals in connection with the services provided to its Clients. The loss of such services or the loss of some key individuals could impair the ability of the Firm to continue operations and to perform its management and advisory activities.

Risk of Loss

  • It is important for Clients to know that when making investments in equity or derivative based portfolios that there is a risk that a portion or 100% of an investment could be lost. Therefore, before making an investment, a client should make sure that he or she can bear the loss of his or her entire investment.

The Firm does not primarily recommend a particular security.  A security is only included in a portfolio based on the quantitative method of analysis process that is conducted by the Firm’s respective internally developed financial models.

Item 11 – Code of Ethics, Participation or Interest in Client Transactions and Personal Trading

  • A copy of the Firm’s “Code of Ethics” will be provided to a client upon request.

The Firm adheres to the following practices as the practices relate to this item:

  • The Firm does not sell or trade securities to Clients in which the Firm has a material financial interest.
  • The Firm puts the interest of the client first in order to try and avoid conflicts of interest.
    • If there is a conflict of interest then the Firm does not invest in the same securities that it recommends to the client.
    • If there is a conflict of interest then the Firm does not buy or sell the same securities that it recommends to the client.

Item 12 – Brokerage Practices

  • The Firm does not recommend broker-dealers to Clients.
  • The Firm ONLY establishes its relationship with broker-dealers to assist the Firm in effectively and efficiently executing transactions.
  • The Firm initially attempts to make purchases and sales on a first come first served basis.
  • The Firm attempts to aggregate ALL purchases or sales of securities for client accounts upon any new transaction that is made on behalf of the Firm’s Clients.
    • A new transaction is any transaction that establishes or repositions the investment portfolios.
  • If the Firm cannot aggregate the purchases or sales, then the Firm utilizes the first letter of a name if it is a company or the first letter of the last name if it is an individual client to provide an order in which the purchases or sales will be made. The Firm changes the order upon each new transaction.  For instance, if the A through Z sequence was utilized for a previous purchase or sale, then the Z through A sequence would be utilized for the next transaction. The Firm believes this provides an orderly and fair process.
  • If the Firm is not able to aggregate the purchase or sale of securities, then there may be varying cost incurred by the Firm’s Clients due to where the client lies along the A through Z sequence. As such, the cost to the client with a last name that starts with the letter Z could vary significantly from the cost to the client with a last name that starts with the letter A.  Therefore, the Firm changes the order for purchases and sales execution for every new transaction that cannot be aggregated in order to attempt to establish a fair dealing order flow process.
  • There is no guarantee that the Firm will achieve its’ fair dealing order flow process, however, the Firm does have procedures in place to attempt to achieve it.

  • Firm receives 20% of the net return exceeding the performance threshold of 10% (annual basis)
    • Firm’s investment advisory services produce 15% annual return
      • Firm compensation calculation:
        • Return – Threshold Return = Net Return
          • 15% – 10% = 5%
        • Net Return * 20% = Firm Compensation
          • 5% * 20% = 1%
        • It is Important to note that performance based compensation can potentially create a conflict of interest since higher compensation is directly related to higher returns. This could lead to taking riskier investments which may carry a higher degree of risk for a client.
        • The Firm’s performance fees are negotiable.
