Risk exists with every activity of our lives, from driving to eating, and it exists with investments. In whatever we do, the question that we should ask is whether the potential reward outweighs the potential risk. To assist our clients, MarketCycle Wealth Management practices risk control via the following methods:
- We utilize a proprietary method of protecting assets during high risk periods; normal market noise is ignored. We follow our system with complete fidelity.
- Most assets are held for the longer term. This reduces the volatility in the portfolio and increases profits while dramatically reducing taxes.
- All portfolios are globally diversified into the strongest lower-risk assets.
- All client money is held by a reputable third party clearing house: Interactive Brokers. Clients have 24 hour Internet access into their account. Interactive Brokers maintains SIPC insurance on every account plus additional insurance. They deal directly with you with regard to all paperwork and quarterly, yearly and even year end tax reporting (which is easily downloaded from the Interactive Brokers website). Money is never commingled with other client’s money; all accounts are separately held and managed.
Most importantly, we have the vast majority of our own personal money invested in MarketCycle portfolios exactly as our clients are positioned (our personal trades are never taken in advance of our clients). If you lose, we lose, so you can rest assured that market and economic conditions are watched very, very carefully.
