The Optimized Portfolio System (TOPS®) was developed and is currently managed by an investment team comprised of distinguished individuals including a number of CFAs (Chartered Financial Analysts®) and experienced investment managers.
The TOPS® Management Team employs a disciplined strategy that takes a long-term investment perspective. They have found exchange traded funds (ETFs) to be reliable tools when constructing diversified portfolios that experience minimal style drift.
The TOPS® Portfolios are designed to match an investor’s specific goals with the portfolio that suits their time-horizon and risk tolerance. The TOPS® models work to address conservative, short-term needs, as well as long-term aggressive growth strategies and several variations in between.
ETFs commonly track market indices which can result in lower average portfolio expense ratios. ETFs are also designed with inherent administrative efficiencies that work to provide additional cost savings to investors.
In general, ETFs are considered tax-efficient, pooled investment vehicles. They attempt to limit the number of transactions that cause realizations of capital gains during an investment period. By limiting turnover and selectively redeeming shares when necessary, ETF managers work to provide inherent tax savings to investors.
The underlying holdings of each ETF are published daily by their providers and trade intra-day like a stock, allowing the TOPS Management team to react in a timely manner to important information and changes in market conditions.
