Simplify your 401(k) Investing with 4 Easy Steps.
How Can This Service Help You
Many of our client's and listener’s are invested in their employer's 401(k) plan. In the past, it has been very difficult to provide timely information and suggestions for these types of accounts, because each one is unique.
We’re excited to say that Active401(k)™ changes that! We believe this new system can help meet a serious challenge for the average investor - how to make informed choices within the limits of their employer’s plan.
"The current structure of the 401(k) industry puts the investor at a disadvantage to the benefit of the institutions that dominate the market. Active 401k gives the advantage back to the employee."
- Justin Klein, CEO of KPP Financial
A study shows that more than 90% of your investment portfolio’s growth will be attributed to asset allocation. Yet less than 7% of 401k investors make changes to their investment allocations in a year.
Let Active 401k keep your asset allocation on track!
We integrated the Grabel & Lytton risk tolerance questionnaire into our process to provide a starting point for you to better understand your own risk scores. Through a brief survey, the G&L questionnaire will accurately assess how much risk you are willing to take in the markets as well as how much return you're looking to receive on your investments. The G&L is the only peer-reviewed and tested risk tolerance work in the industry.
No. We never take custody of any of your funds. We simply provide solid advice as to where to invest it. We give you the suggested allocation and then you simply login to your custodian's web portal and make the changes we suggest.
How do you determine when to make changes to allocation? Our model portfolios use active strategies that constantly monitor the momentum and direction of stock and bond markets. While we also actively monitor the individual investment options inside of your retirement plan, we make recommendations for reallocation every calendar quarter. When there is a high probability of a downturn in the market over the coming quarter, we move to the minimum prescribed stock allocation for that quarter. When the probability for gains is indicated, we prescribe maximum stock allocation based on the risk portfolio that you select.
How do you choose your portfolio? When it comes down to deciding which of your investment options to suggest, we always recommend the investment options that are currently showing the most sustainable momentum compared to the others. It's simply a mathematical interpretation of 'which of the options is currently offering the most potential for gain'.
Can I make changes to the portfolio? You cannot make changes to our model portfolios. You can change your profile with Active401k™ to move to riskier or less risky portfolio allocation. And of course, because you are in control of making the changes to your retirement account allocation (we just provide the information component) you can always choose to take more or less risk on their own.
Instead of the same old tired buy-n-hold investment strategies, ActivePortfolios provides an easy-to-explain tactical approach that can provide protection from normal market corrections while also participating in gains when they are available without undue risk.
