The best plan is the one your client can stick to.

Aptus specializes in risk-mitigated investing, focused on helping advisors create more confident clients. Our aim is the pursuit of better upside : downside capture, to minimize the gap between what the market gives and what the typical investor gets.
We start with low cost, high quality exposure to primary asset classes, and build in return opportunities & downside protection through actively-hedged ETF strategies. Protection comes in multiple forms:

  1. Diversification: necessary but not sufficient, particularly in extreme rate environment
  2. Hedging: both near the money and out of the money, across different time frames
  3. Asymmetry: selective defined-risk opportunities with potentially larger payoffs

The ultimate output is an easy to hold, easy to trade portfolio that keeps clients focused on their ultimate goals with reduced chance of behavioral mistakes. Pursuing upside capture through downside protection, with a more consistent match to your client’s risk score.
