Objective

The Financial folio was developed for investors seeking aggressive capital growth with significant volatility.

Strategy

The Financial folio is comprised of the largest companies in the financial services industry. Banks, investment banks, credit card providers, and insurance companies all contribute to the financial sector folio.

Integrating several different facets of the financial services market in this folio provides a diversification benefit not seen in more targeted banking sector strategies. Investing across the financial sectors—instead of focusing solely on banks or insurance companies—reduces company and sector specific risk.
