Investing in our Active Equity portfolio can be seen as an alternative investment i.e. a non-traditional investment. Our investment objective is simple â€“ maximise the value of the account through trading and investing in equities. High-frequency and algorithmic traders have changed the markets into a very volatile environment, which creates opportunities for us to take advantage of; we strategically buy and sell shares at pre-determined entry and exit levels.
We do however take long-term positions if we feel that a share is undervalued, or if there is a trigger that we feel will move the share once it has been pulled (being included in an index, trading statements etc.).
Once it has been established that an equity trading portfolio will be beneficial to the client, the account is opened and funded. Continuous economic, fundamental, and technical analysis is used to strategically invest a portion and trade a portion of the portfolio. The strategic allocation allows an extremely flexible investment approach and provides us with the opportunity to maximise clientsâ€™ portfolio values by capitalising on share price volatility.
This approach can generate a return substantially higher than a normal equity portfolio would. It is worth noting that no gearing is taken as we only trade and invest in pure equities, or shares.
