The MaxBalanced strategy is designed to provide an approach similar to that of many university endowments, which strive to achieve returns but must also ensure risk is mitigated so the fundamental purposes of the endowment are not substantially at risk. For an individual investor, Capstone Investment Financial Group, LLC believes this approach can lead to attractive returns with less volatility than some of our other strategies. MaxBalanced was initiated by Capstone Investment Financial Group, Inc., which Capstone Investment Financial Group, LLC purchased in 2014, and we have continued operating the strategy as intended. The operating premise of this strategy involves both diversification and tactical allocation; thus the term “balanced”. The MaxBalancedSM strategy may invest in domestic stocks — small, medium, large; international stocks — developed or emerging; US bonds, including TIPS; non-US bonds; currencies; real estate; natural resources and commodities, as well as absolute return strategies. Besides stocks and bonds, we will invest in Exchange Traded Funds and Mutual Funds that meet these criteria.
The goal of the MaxBalanced strategy is to provide superior risk-adjusted returns.
An investor using this strategy seeks preservation of capital with some exposure to equity.
MaxBalanced was inspired by the University Endowment Model. The Portfolio is designed to offer investors improved risk management techniques and broad diversification.
The strategy is super diversified, with an entire world of investable assets available to build our portfolios – including 7 major and 12 sub-asset classes.
MaxBalanced offers a tactical, disciplined, and rules-based risk management process to seek capital preservation in poor markets. In addition, MaxBalanced provides worldwide opportunities for stability and growth.
