Morningstar Chart

Active Lifestyle Portfolio model overview disclosure

Active Lifestyle Portfolio (ALP) strategy typically seeks to participate in all markets and sectors by investing the portfolio in sectors which HCM’s Proactive Section Rotation (PSR) methodology indicates have potential to meet performance objectives. PSR is a tactical asset allocation methodology, which attempts to identify the best performing sectors at a given point in time. The ALP strategy utilizes the HCM-BuyLine® proprietary indicator to monitor market conditions and assist in determining whether or not assets should be invested in equity products or moved to cash, cash equivalents, or bond funds. Multiple indicators are monitored in an effort to identify such trends in the equity markets. The strategy is rebalanced periodically, and it is possible for the allocation to be adjusted, including when the HCM-BuyLine® indicates a strengthening or weakening of the equity markets. Because this Howard Capital Management, Inc. (HCM) strategy is actively managed, it may experience above-average turnover, which could have a negative impact on account performance. To discourage short-term investing and excessive trading, mutual funds, including those utilized in the ALP strategy, may impose short-term redemption fees that range from 0.50% to 2.00%. HCM seeks to avoid these fees, but they may occasionally be incurred.

Your retirement account is likely one of your largest assets.

Are you allowing it to adapt for optimum

For most in the Defense Sector, the answer is absolutely not. Smart investment decisions within your retirement account are mission critical since the funds you accumulate over the coming years may need to support you through many years of retirement.

According to a recent study, investors who used some form of investment “help” achieved returns nearly 3% higher than those who did not receive help.

For a 45-year-old participant that seeks the help of a financial professional it could translate to 79% more wealth at age 65.3.
