The 1990's were the best of times and the worst of times for investors. It was hard to make a bad investment. Everything was going north and everyone was making money no matter what they did. But in the process, too many investment advisors, too many money managers and too many investors failed to put in place a proper financial plan with a good risk management program. The 1990's lulled investors into really believing it was different this time.
The damage of the next ten years didn't have to happen. At Limerick Financial Group, we are dedicated to make certain it doesn't happen to our clients. Our goal is not only to assure that our clients keep their quality of life in the good times, but also in the bad times. Proper planning and risk management isessential to a sound financial plan, but its importance cannot be overstated when you are retired.
At Limerick Financial Group, we offer five core investment allocations and three specialty equity strategies that work.
This model uses an 80/20 split bond to equity allocation. The primary objective of this model is capital preservation with dividend income potential.
This model is a 70/30 split bond to equity allocation. The primary objective of this model is capital preservation with a growth potential.
This model is a 55/45 split bond to equity allocation. The primary objective of this model is stable capital appreciation.
This model is a 35/65 split bond to equity allocation. The primary objective is capital appreciation.
This model is a 20/80 split bond to equity allocation. The primary goal is capital growth appreciation.
This model works the Nasdaq 100 Index both long & short, looking to take advantage of market cycles. This model utilizes leveraged mutual funds with a two beta. The strategy is invested only when we believe an identifiable trend is underway. When market conditions are too volatile and our indicators do not provide definitive buy or sell signals, it will maintain a market neutral position.
This strategy utilizes a core and satellite equity portfolio, holding only equity mutual funds and exchange traded funds both growth and value, domestic and abroad. Where appropriate investment vehicles exist, we may be long or short. Here again, our allocations are not static but opportunistic. We seek to be invested in asset classes that have the greatest perceived opportunities for appreciation based on our technical indicators. There may be times when we don't see opportunities for appreciation. That's when risk management comes into play and portfolios are moved to the sidelines to wait for the next opportunity. This model uses mutual funds/ETFs non-leveraged.
This strategy invests in the five major U.S. market index’s using ETFs in equal shares to hedge risk. It is a hybrid of buy and hold, but rebalances either quarterly, semi-annual or annual depending on conditions.
