Now available: New turnkey investment solutions from Flexible Plan

We have recently launched a new suite of multi-strategy services:

  • QFC Fusion 2.0—A new and improved iteration of our most popular portfolio of strategies.
  • QFC Multi-Strategy Core—A dynamically risk-managed core portfolio that blends a variety of our Quantified Fee Credit (QFC) core strategies. The resulting portfolio—which can be customized to one of five risk profiles (from conservative to aggressive)—is designed to be used as a standalone core or to enhance the risk management of a passive core portfolio. Because QFC Multi-Strategy Core is actively managed, it’s designed to take advantage of opportunities that are not available to the passive core.
  • Four QFC Multi-Strategy Explore—Available for four different investment scenarios: low volatility, low correlation, special equity, and equity trends. The first is for those with more conservative expectations, the second is moderate to balanced focused, and the final two would be deemed more growth-oriented. These options can be added to customize and complete a “core and explore” portfolio.

Each of these solutions is turnkey: We monitor them, impose the discipline of trading them, and then report their performance to you.

As QFC strategies, our new offerings exclusively use our subadvised mutual funds, allowing us to deliver fee credits that lower our portion of the strategy’s advisory fee. As turnkey multi-strategy services, they also offer three levels of risk and opportunity management:

  1. Dynamic risk and opportunity management within each mutual fund.
  2. Dynamic risk and opportunity management among all of the funds used in each strategy.
  3. Active risk and opportunity management of the allocation among the QFC strategies.

The minimum investment in QFC Fusion 2.0 or QFC Multi-Strategy Core is $25,000, while a QFC Multi-Strategy Explore option requires $5,000.

Investors who maintain accounts with a balance of at least $100,000 in either QFC Fusion 2.0 or QFC Multi-Strategy Core receive all of the added benefits of our Prime accounts. These include added risk customization (QFC Fusion 2.0 only), longevity fee credits, waiver of our paper delivery fee, and access to our quarterly conference call.

For more information on these strategies, please contact our Sales department at 800-347-3539, ext. 2.
