Portfolio information


The Portfolio Manager utilizes academic and investment practitioner research regarding equity factors (Fama, French, Carhart, and others) as well as in-house research, which is ongoing and periodically updated. The Portfolio Manager also utilizes proprietary research regarding the influence of global economic data on equity market outcomes. The Portfolio Manager has experience running enhanced equity index strategies since 2003.


Atlas Capital Advisors LLC (the Portfolio Manager) uses a proprietary framework to evaluate expected returns, market sentiment and risks for the single country and US sector indices, which together comprise the global equity market. Based on this assessment, the Portfolio Manager adjusts the weight of portfolio holdings towards the countries and sectors with more favorable characteristics and away from those with less favorable characteristics. When the overall assessment of the risk/return profile of equity markets is favorable, the Portfolio Manager expects the portfolio to be fully invested in equity markets (which is generally the case over 75% of the time). If global economic data worsens and a substantial portion of the global equity market exhibits undesirable characteristics, the Portfolio Manager expects to de-risk the Strategy by allocating a portion of the Strategy to short-term fixed income. The degree of de-risking is a function of the proportion of the global equity market with an unfavorable assessment. The proportion of the Strategy’s investment in equities may go as low as 50% in the most negative scenario. The Strategy uses a consistent, systematic approach with a foundation in academic and Portfolio Manager proprietary research. The benchmark for the Strategy is the FTSE Global All Cap Net Tax (US Regulated Investment Company) Index. (1) Invest Globally: - Diversification across geographic markets provides the opportunity to benefit when there are attractive markets outside the home country. (2) Create alpha from beta management: - Return of any equity market index (the equity beta) can be achieved dynamically and cheaply via ETFs. - Additional return (alpha) can be generated from systematic beta management – informed choices about which stock markets to own and avoid. Generating alpha from beta management is often under-appreciated and under-utilized by investors. (3) Take risk where it is more likely to be rewarded: - Examine valuation, momentum, growth, risk and currency for each market. Allocate the risk budget primarily to favorable markets. (4) Defend against losses: - When too many equity markets turn bad, and the global economy is worsening, move assets to short-term fixed income to avoid losses for investors.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and all investments, including those in this portfolio, involve the risk of loss, including loss of principal and a reduction in earnings.

This portfolio was launched on Interactive Advisors on October 23, 2021, when clients were able to start investing in it. All performance information on this page is actual performance of the Portfolio Manager’s account and presented “net of fees”. The actual performance chart is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be used as the basis for making an investment decision. Actual client returns will differ. All Portfolio Manager information including personal data, profiles, and strategies has been provided by the Portfolio Manager.

Important information
  1. All performance information on this page is based on the performance of the Portfolio Manager’s account, using the manager’s own funds. Performance of the Portfolio Manager's account is calculated by Interactive Advisors on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and reflects the deduction of broker commissions (when commissions were charged). Manager returns include trades and positions that fail Interactive Advisors' trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. Interactive Advisors’ advisory fees are simulated and applied retroactively to present the portfolio return “net-of-fees”.
  2. We rely on mathematical formulas, computer programs, and pricing information from third-party vendors (e.g., Refinitiv Worldscope database) to provide these returns. Neither Interactive Advisors nor any of its data or content providers shall be liable for any errors in this information or any actions taken by you in reliance upon this information.
  3. None of the performance information displayed on this page is based on the actual performance of any Interactive Advisors client account investing in this portfolio. The performance in an Interactive Advisors client account invested in this portfolio may differ (i.e., be lower or higher) from the performance of the account managing this portfolio and portrayed on this page based on a variety of factors, such as trading restrictions imposed by the client (resulting in different account holdings), time of initial investment, amount of investment, frequency and size of cash flows in and out of the client account, applicable brokerage commissions (when commissions were charged), and different corporate actions. Clients investing in this portfolio may view the actual performance of their investment in this portfolio by logging into their Interactive Advisors account and reviewing their customized dashboard.
  4. Not all transactions underlying the performance information displayed on this page will appear in accounts due to Interactive Advisors’ trading rules and individual client constraints. Eligibility of these securities is monitored periodically, and may change over time. Actual client investment holdings may vary.
  5. Clients may restrict any of the securities traded in their account, but should note that any restrictions they place on their investments could affect the performance of their account leading it to perform differently, worse or better, than (a) the above-portrayed account managing the portfolio or (b) other client accounts invested in the same portfolio.
  6. All graph data is as of the end of day for the referenced period, unless otherwise specified. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by Interactive Advisors, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
  7. Interactive Advisors’ management of this portfolio and some of the information on this page relies on data from third-party sources, including third parties providing the model portfolio strategy or ESG score information, as applicable. While Interactive Advisors believes that the data it uses in its investment management processes is obtained from reliable sources, it did not audit or validate this data, which may contain errors.
  8. Benchmark returns displayed in the performance graph upon selection are provided for illustrative purposes only and have been calculated by Interactive Advisors using daily adjusted close prices and include dividend income. Benchmarks available for display are selected based on overall strategy, trade history and other criteria. If you choose to display benchmark returns in the performance graph, be mindful of the fact that the performance, composition and volatility of the portfolio could vary significantly from that of the benchmark(s) available for display. There can be no assurance that a benchmark will remain appropriate over time and Interactive Advisors will periodically review the benchmark’s appropriateness and decide to use other benchmarks if appropriate. More information here. Interactive Advisors uses only investable ETFs as benchmarks. Investable ETF returns reflect the deduction of (i.e., are net of) management fees, transaction costs and expenses.
