Market Guard® Investment Methodology

The Power of Knowing

At Summit Wealth Strategies, we implement a proprietary investment methodology called Market Guard® that utilizes a non-emotional, mathematical, methodical point of view. It’s designed to signal what we believe are the three most important aspects when it comes to investing:

  • When To Hold
  • When To Sell
  • When To Re-enter Back Into the Market

It’s designed to help prevent the next major market crash from wiping out your life’s savings.

The Tactical & Strategic Market Guard® Investment Recipe

Step 1 – Choose the right ingredients

Did you know that more than 90% of portfolio performance is determined by asset allocation?1 That’s why Market Guard’s Portfolio Manager (“PM”) evaluates, selects, and implements individual investment positions to create a fully globally diversified portfolio.

Step 2 – Put in the correct ratio of ingredients

Market Guard® PM determines the optimal asset allocation among the individual investment positions. Market Guard™ provides multiple tactical management styles to fit an investor’s individual investment goals and risk tolerance in each separately managed account. This step helps you discover how much risk to take in your season of life and for your individual comfort level.

Step 3 – Bake the ingredients for the right amount of time

During this step, Market Guard®’s portfolio monitoring system assesses the individual positions in the portfolio and signals possible opportune times to BUY, SELL OR HOLD the underlying investment position, based on your previously decided risk level.
