mABC Investment Advisors, LLC seeks to find high performing Mutual Funds and Exchange Traded Funds (EFTs) to create well diversified portfolios with the goal of producing consistent, risk adjusted returns for our clients. To accomplish this goal the following is our general approach to investing:
mABC Investment Advisors primarily invests in open ended mutual funds and exchange traded funds. Funds are selected primarily based on Morningstar ratings and analysis, the fund’s recent and anticipated performance and alignment with our model portfolio and asset allocation objectives for broad asset class, industry/sector and geographical diversification.
mABC Investment Advisors also invests in index based Exchange Traded Funds, particularly in non tax deferred accounts to reduce client transaction and other account fees and taxes. The ETFs are selected to align with our model portfolio and asset allocation objectives for broad asset class, industry/sector and geographical diversification.
At the request of the client, mABC Investment Advisors will invest in a limited number of individual equities when for example the client wishes to hold a limited amount of their employer’s company stock or when the client believes there are unique market opportunities they would like to exploit.
Where a client comes on board with long term bonds or other fixed income products, these securities are generally held in the account until maturity or market conditions indicate a good time to make trades. In these cases we will generally discuss the sale with the client before the trade is placed, even for discretionary accounts.
Based on discussions with the client and our own assessment of the client’s financial situation, accounts are characterized as Conservative, Moderate, Moderately Aggressive or Aggressive. For each of these account classifications, mABC Investment Advisors maintains model portfolios and asset allocations based on risk adjusted return analysis. On a quarterly basis each client account is reviewed and rebalanced as necessary. Clients are provided with quarterly reports outlining recent performance and asset allocation, geographical and industry / sector diversification. Accounts are monitored regularly -- generally weekly – to assess performance relative to market situations. If necessary, accounts may be rebalanced or otherwise reallocated among asset classes for what mABC Investment Advisors believes are in the best interest of the client.
