At WealthTrak, we believe Strategic Risk Management is the most important factor in managing client portfolios. Risk management is the foundation upon which we combine balance, diversification, and experience to preserve client assets and pursue growth and opportunity.
Our Core Portfolios are engineered for long term capital appreciation through our unique approach to diversification and balance. Diversification is important in general but we believe most of the value in diversification is realized by choosing to allocate to asset classes that perform well in different economic conditions. We achieve balance by weighting asset classes based on risk level and the prevailing macroeconomic environment.
Our more opportunistic Satellite Portfolios introduce tactical holdings in equity, fixed income, and alternative asset classes that are managed with proprietary signals. These portfolios can have substantial cash allocation during negative market conditions.
We combine our Core Portfolio with one or more Satellite Portfolios to build a well-rounded, economically robust portfolio tailored to our clients’ individual risk level and goals.
The recent turmoil in the worldwide financial markets has reiterated the need for diligent risk management. Our WealthTrak managed account strategies allow us to more effectively monitor the risk level in the market. When our WealthTrak-TrendLine indicates the risk is too high, we have the capability to take action to try to mitigate that exposure on your behalf.
As investment analyst Louise Yamada said, “There are two kinds of losses. A loss of capital and a loss of opportunity; but there will always be another opportunity if you protect capital.” We are very conscious of trying to protect your money during times of anticipated negative volatility. That way, we will have capital to invest when new opportunities arise.
We are excited about the opportunity to serve you. We believe this partnership will help design a plan to achieve your investment goals while offering the personalized service you’ve come to expect.

There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not ensure against market risk. No strategy can assure a profit or protect against loss.
